The Raceline Pirelli KTM team evolved from being a highly successful Raceline Junior squad founded by John Tisdale and his family in the early 2000’s to help support the youth of Australian Motocross.
In 2008 the team made the jump into Pro Motocross as the Raceline Pirelli Suzuki Official Under 19s Development Team, with its first ever riders Laswon Bopping and Keiran Tisdale graduating from the junior program. Lawson Bopping took out 2nd place in the MX Nationals that very same year.
The team continued to grow and kept supporting the transition for rider’s from Junior Motocross to Senior Motocross as well as competing in the super competitive MX2 class where the team really punched above its weight and landed its fair share of MX Nationals round poduims.
In 2011 the team won its first ever MXD Championship with Errol Willis, who went on to win the Australian Supercross championship in the same year.
In 2016 the team made a huge change, and joined force’s with KTM Australia to form the all new Raceline Pirelli KTM team which still stays true to its roots as a MXD and MX2 rider development outfit, as well as flying the flag at KTM Official MX2 team.
2017 the team saw great success with Jay Wilson in both the Motocross and Supercross championships.
