Press Release
January 13, 2005

The first round of the 2005 AMA THQ Supercross series was a hugely successful event
for Nathan Ramsey and the 2005 KTM 250SXF. Nathan Ramsey won the 125cc
Supercross Main aboard the KTM SXF; it's first American debut.

The sloppy, muddy track was no match for the talented Nathan Ramsey and the powerful
KTM 250 SXF. He said, "I am so excited. I know the track was a mess, but the bike ran
great. I'm really happy that I was able to give KTM their first win on the 250SXF.
Hopefully, there's a lot more to come."

Team Manager, Larry Brooks added, "Nathan rode flawlessly. We've been practicing as
much as we can, depending on the weather, and I am really glad to see our hard work
paying off. There's been a lot of effort put into the 250SXF as everyone is working to
perfect the bike. Nathan is a dedicated, hard-working rider and we look forward to the rest
of the season."

Nathan also won the Toronto and Vancouver rounds of the THQ AMA World Supercross
rounds in December. Nathan has not finished less than first in any of the Supercross
rounds he has entered on his KTM.

Teammate, Jay Marmont rode his KTM 250 SXF extremely well in the sloppy Anaheim
round, and is a promising, young talent. Due to bad luck and terrible conditions, Jay
finished up in the 21st position.

Congratulations to Nathan Ramsey for a job well done.
