Hard enduro expert Chris Birch and eight-time GNCC champion Kailub Russell accept the challenge and take part in the legendary Erzbergrodeo Hare Scramble, on the KTM 300 EXC Erbergrodeo.
In a nerve-wracking event like Erzbergrodeo, thorough preparation is extremely important. It can save important time in the paddock and precious seconds on the track. A rider like Russell knows how to maneuver his bike through fast sections and over the toughest obstacles, and Birch uses the best engineering and performance to conquer the most extreme areas.
The KTM 300 EXC Erzbergrodeo 2023 was designed for the challenges of the Erzbergrodeo and offers premium components developed for racing. Model year 2023 meets the demands of this race thanks to the latest specification.
The performance advantage is due to the CNC milled fork bridge, factory wheels with anodized hubs, Supersprox invisible sprocket, map select switch and non-perforated rear brake disc. Metzler tires of the type 6 Days Extreme are mounted.
Faster and better ride means more risk and more stress on the bike. Here too, the KTM 300 EXC Erzbergrodeo 2023 sets new standards, with a robust handguard kit, radiator guard, chain guard retainer plate and clutch protection, front and rear wheel brake protection and safety. If you can’t go further on the Erzberg, pull the straps at the front and back of the aid.
Russell and Birch know that character and style should not be underestimated: what is good makes you feel good. The KTM 300 EXC Erzbergrodeo 2023 shines with an orange racing frame, an orange factory seat from the Italian manufacturer Selle Della Valle, a lightweight paramotor and the Erzbergrodeo look, which expertly combines shades of gray with the characteristic KTM color tone. The bike also proudly bears the names of some of the Erzbergrodeo route signs and checkpoints, including “Elevator”, “Machine” and “Carl’s Diner”.
We are thrilled to see how Russell and Birch fare on the merciless Iron Mountain. We will find out, for example, on Red Bull TV on Saturday 18 June from 7pm and Sunday 19 June at 2pm. Not only Russell and Birch can ride this bike: the KTM 300 EXC Erzbergrodeo is produced in limited numbers and can be ordered from authorized KTM dealers.
