JDR/KTM Factory Racing will welcome back Ryan Marmont when the MX Nationals returns this weekend at Moree, NSW, on Sunday August 19.
The Wollongong resident was forced out of the title chase with a wrist injury following round three in April, but has confirmed his comeback for the ninth and penultimate round. Fresh from claiming the Prince of the Cross title in Western Australia earlier this month and attending the 2013 KTM SX-F media introduction, Marmont is confident that he can carry momentum into his MX Nationals return.
"I'm definitely excited to be back on the bike, especially without pain as it's been some time since I was able to ride without pain," he explained. "I feel as though I've done as much as I can in a short amount of time, so the plan is to get racing under my belt before supercross starts. It was great riding the new range of KTMs at Louee earlier this week and KTM has a strong line-up of bikes for 2013. It was a great preview of things to come for the brand when the bikes are released, but for now hopefully we can finish off this year strong as of this weekend."
