Max Vohland, the team’s lone 250 rider, suffered a broken collarbone in the first 250SX East Region main event of the season, then injured his thumb before the Foxborough Supercross. Rumors had it that the KTM factory team was looking for a second rider with Vohland and several names came to light, including Marvin Musquin, who is set to sign a one-year supercross-only deal with the team. Reportedly, Musquin was offered to ride the 250 class, but that doesn’t appear to be the case as his name was omitted from the press release, making Vohland the sole 250 rider. Musquin said after the Denver Supercross that he was working toward a contract for the 2023 supercross season.

The team also recently announced that Ryan Dungey and Antonio Cairoli will take part in the first two rounds (although if all goes well we could see them continue to line up in later rounds as well).

Jeffrey Herlings’ name is also omitted from the post as KTM announced earlier this week that the reigning FIM Motocross World Champion will undergo a pair of foot surgeries in order to heal properly for the 2023 MXGP title fight.

Thursday we rounded up more news on Webb, Ken Roczen (racing this summer), Dylan Ferrandis (looking to defend the No. 1 plate), Adam Cianciarulo, Joey Savatgy, Shane McElrath and Max Anstie ahead of the May 28 opening—so check this post if you missed it.

The following press release is from KTM:
