Maybe in 03 will see both of them racing Euro bikes in 250SX.
I've always liked Jeremy as a rider and as an ambassador to the sport. In the past I felt he could have won races on any brand. The level of competition has risen in the 250's to where its not just the rider anymore. Now its rider and the machine.
I'll give my call now. Top ten finishes mostly. Probably 7 or 8 top fives and a couple of podiums. I don't think he'll win a race in his first season on the KTM. In the end he'll come in top 5 in points due to consistency.
Just my .02

If KTM deals with everything else, we should have a real shootout by about the third round or so. If that is the case, the fans and the sport are the winners.

JEREMY MCGRATH TO KTM IN 2003?
Well, Nobody is Denying it!
Jeremy McGrath may be riding orange in 2003. KTM Orange that is. Look for an announcement very soon about McGrath's 2003 plans.
By B.J. Smith
If the worst kept secret in motocross history was Ricky Carmichael's switch to Honda, then Jeremy McGrath riding a KTM in 2003 is the second worst kept secret. McGrath was spotted last week turning laps on a 2003 KTM 250SX at a Calif. Supercross track and the rumor is that he signed an agreement for four years (two to race and two to develop) at a local Starbucks. Calls to all parties are "no comment" returns but no one is denying the rumor. But get this:
McGrath's publicist said an announcement about Jeremy's relationship with Yamaha will be released later this week. She also said that we can expect an announcement about McGrath's 2003 plans on August 12th. It just so happens that August 12th is the same day as the KTM 2003 dealer convention. Hmmmm... You do the math and we'll keep you posted.
