Catching up with KTM USA’s Mike Sleeter #111

Mike Sleeter is a guy with a full plate. Between managing KTM’s Amateur team and doing Research and Development for KTM’s new products in the U.S., does he have time to enjoy the bikes he works with all the time?

Yes, he does. Mike also enjoys racing, and this year you can catch him on a 2011 KTM 250SX 2 Stroke at select events across the country. Mike plans on riding the smoker at Mammoth, Glen Helen, Boulder City and possibly Hangtown. It all depends on where KTM places him. He is very excited about it, then again aren’t we all?

"Keep an eye out for the 2012 SX line, as 2 Stroke development continues." -Mike Sleeter, KTM USA R&D

Mike is a long time fan and rider of the 2 Stroke, moving on to a 4 Stroke as he turned Pro. Like most people, he would like to see the AMA have Pro classes available for the 2 Strokes to be competitve in. 

For 2011, KTM is placing him in the select events to represent the 2 Strokes. See you at the track!

I would like to thank Mike for taking the time to talk with Two Stroke Motocross, and wish him the best of luck in 2011!

  1. I’ve never been to the Starwest course. Seeing those houses in the background, I wonder how long the place will last with all the four stroke noise problems?

    Good luck Mike, fly the 2 stroke banner high!

  2. It’s awesome to see a great KTM rider racing a 2-stroke!I’ll definetly be rooting for #111 Mike Sleeter when he races @ Mammoth,Hangtown,Glen Helen & Boulder City as well as any race he chooses to ride the the Katoom 250sx smoker! Lookout for Team KTM in 2011 in Supercross & Motocross with Sleeter on the smoker,Alessi on the FI 350sx-f and also new to the team Andrew Short and team manager Roger “The Man” Decoster!They are destined for a championship in 2011!

  3. I think James Stewart could win a national on a 125 still,I never seen anyone ride a 125 like that dude.ok maybe a 150
