Raceline, which is now recognised as one of the most competitive privateer race teams in the country, is the perfect new home for former SXD and MXD Australian Champion Evans, while Rykers who captured a podium with the team in 2017 will also remain on board for the 2018 race season.
Evans, who will make the shift to a KTM 450 SX-F for both Motocross and Supercross next year believes he is up for the challenge, and is looking forward to getting this new chapter of his career started with Raceline Pirelli KTM.
“For 2018 I always knew that I wanted to be on the 450. This year I really struggled to keep my weight down and to be light enough on the 250 particularly with my starts, so I felt it was time to step up to the bigger machine,” Evans shared.
“The opportunity came up with Raceline where I was able to make that switch in a low pressure development situation. I raced KTM’s in my junior career and to have the chance to get back on orange again with all the big changes that they have made to the bike and in the 450 class is awesome.
“Raceline are a really great bunch of people who have proven that they’re able to achieve results – that was a big thing for me. Next year I’m hoping to be able to achieve podiums.
“It’s obviously going to be a big challenge but I believe that if I put in the work and without the pressure that I felt I had this year that no one will expect me or see me as a threat, so it’s really the perfect scenario.”
