The Maxxis/KLIM/DirtWise KTM Race team wants to congratulate their 2014 season rider Jesse Groemm for landing a two-year full factory ride with the Factory Beta Off-road race team in the USA. Following a stellar year of racing which saw Groemm attain 2nd Overall in the National Enduro series, plus some great performances in the GNCC XC2 class is now looking to further those results in 2015.

Maxxis/KLIM/DirtWise KTM team owner, and Off-road racing legend, Shane Watts was ecstatic at the news of Groemm's future direction, saying, "I'm so stoked that our DirtWise program was an integral part of getting Jesse to this next level to further his racing career. The goal of our race team is to provide riders with an infrastructure to improve them and then to be able to move onto a better deal. We've spent a heap of time, effort, and money this year to help Jesse become better on and off the track while achieving his immediate goals, and progressing forward towards his future goals - $60,000 salary, a free Sprinter van, and paid trips to Europe for select races is something we are never going to be able to offer our riders so it's awesome that he now has that at his disposal to use to go for victory. Jesse works hard and deserves this support, so I'm just so happy we could make this happen and we wish Jesse the very best as he leaves the DirtWise family, and we look forward to seeing the great results he racks up in the future!"

Jesse Groemm was very thankful for his time on the Maxxis/KLIM/DirtWise KTM team, commenting with, "The Watts family welcomed me with open arms and really helped me out a lot during 2014. The support and guidance I got from them and the Race team sponsors was immense in allowing me to score such great results this year - I can't thank them enough for the opportunity to be a part of their DirtWise program. I can't wait for next year to get out on my new bike and rip it up and go for victory!"
