James Alen will headline the team as the MX1 class rider competing on the 2017 KTM 450 Sxf. Alen, at twenty years old has been a stand out Victorian privateer in recent seasons both at state and National level. In 2017 Alen claimed a career best 8th Moto score in the MX1 class at Sheparton and 10th overall at Broadford, this all being achieved with minimal sponsorship and working a full time job.
“I’m pumped to have signed with the MAD Peter Stevens team for 2017 and I feel this is a great opportunity for me to take the next step in my career. Going from being a full privateer to having the support of a team is amazing and to be able to work with Joe at the track during the week, Steve Powell suspension and motor testing and being able to fly to all of the interstate races as opposed to driving, not to mention having the support of so many great sponsors has already made my life so much easier and allowed me to focus on riding and training to be ready on race day”.
