15-year-old Mike Gwerder will be racing in 2019 for the KINI KTM Junior Pro Team on a KTM SX125, and has signed a contract for the European Championship EMX125 and the ADAC Junior Cup 125.
With the support of KTM Switzerland, he will also take part in some races for the FMS Swiss MX2 Championship with a KTM SX-F250 four-stroke bike.
The past weeks he has been preparing with the KTM Junior Training Group for the upcoming season.
Gwerder improved rapidly during 2018 and finished fourteenth in the EMX125 Championship. Considering he failed to pick up a single point in 2017, the Swiss talent made a huge step this year and will hope to continue his improvement in 2019 to become a front runner in the EMX125 series.
