Adam Sterry and JD Gunnex KTM part company
Adam Sterry and the JD Gunnex KTM team have parted company which means the talented young Brit faces an uncertain future but we will keep you updated.
The team posted the following press release confirming the news:
The time of the season when new contracts will be signed is here. Everything is going to be prepared for the new 2021 season.
The JD GUNNEX KTM RACING TEAM have agreed with Adam Sterry to call off the contract. Due to factors such as the cancel of ADAC MX Masters series (good amount for riders) and complications about restart of MXGP (14 days of quarantine before the Latvia races, because Czech Republic is still “COVID-19 active” for Latvian goverment).
Both sides thinks it is the best for the cancellation. Adam could find a new team for 2021 season much easier. The JD GUNNEX KTM RACING TEAM wants to focus mainly on MX2 class but José Butron will still be part of the team.
Jiří Jankovský, TEAM MANAGER:
I would like to thank Adam for his professional attitude. We spent some time together and I think he is true professional. I would like to wish him great results in the future. In my opinion he will be very good 450cc rider. He has all assumptions for it. I would like to also thanks to his family, Mum and Dad for their huge support and especially to his trainer Ash.
I would like to thank the JD GUNNEX KTM RACING TEAM and Jiri for the opportunity, obviously this year has been tough for everyone and I’m now looking forward to getting back to racing. I wish the team all best for the rest of the year and the future.
