Are Kendall Norman & KTM Hooking Up?
I just love this rumor, it is the gossip that just keeps on giving and giving
Kendall Norman at 2012 Romaniacs
It was well over a year ago that it started. Mr Baja Kendall Norman was out at JCR Honda. KTM made a big commitment to go Baja racing and needed more riders for the team. It is over a year later and KTM still needs riders.
Last year at the Baja 500 they did not have enough riders to cover the two bikes they had entered. They were walking around Ensenada the day before the race looking for candidates! Now, with the unfortunate injury to Toby Price, they are back in the same position.
Last year Kendall made approaches though Austria to see if some deal could come together, but it never did. It seemed like such a match made in heaven (Baja heaven). But no one seemed anxious enough for it to all come together. Kendall even raced a KTM at Erzberg and Romaniacs last year.
Now the rumor is out on the lose again. One intrepid Baja insider claims to have the scoop. Usually, when Edson Romero says it is so, he is on the right track. How one Baja teenager can know more than everyone else is beyond me, but he seems to have his own direct contacts with nearly everyone in Baja.
So, Kendall on a KTM for the Baja 500? Who knows, but it sure seems like the right thing for everyone to do. Let’s make this happen people!
