2024 National Motocross Championship – Legends

The season kicked off with a bang for the Red Bull KTM team, delivering an exciting performance at the inaugural round of the Motocross Nationals held at Legends MX Track this past weekend. Cameron Durow, Luke Grundy, and Trey Cox were firing on all cylinders to make sure they bank some valuable points and get ahead of the game early in the season.

Cameron Durow emerged as the undeniable star of the weekend, securing victory in all four of his heats. His impeccable execution and unshakable focus propelled him to the pinnacle of success, setting a high standard for the rest of the season.

Durow commented on the weekend saying, “I really put in a lot of work in the off-season which gave me a lot of confidence going into the first round. I am so stoked to have started the 2024 season off on such a high note walking away with both red plates for the MX1 and MX2 classes.”

He went on to say, “I am going overseas soon to race in the Netherlands, so my main focus is to stay healthy, strong and fit for the year ahead.”

While Cameron’s remarkable achievements stole the spotlight, Luke Grundy new to the MX2 class had an admirable day in the saddle finishing in 5th overall after having an off-track excursion and getting a banner stuck in his wheel in the first heat.

Grundy commented “I am happy with how I rode; I am still finding my feet but I’m excited for what the year has in store for the new class”

Youngster Trey Cox, who got back behind the gate after almost 9 months off also had a commendable weekend behind the handlebars. Claiming 3-1 in the first and the second heat and snatching up the second spot on the podium overall.

“I made a small mistake in moto one making me come from quite far back, but I managed to turn it around in moto two with a holeshot and managed to lead from start to finish”, commented Cox. He continued to say, “Happy with where l’m at and really excited for the next round,”

Group marketing coordinator Megan Prinsloo commented, “The Red Bull KTM team’s outstanding performance at the first round of the Motocross Nationals positions them as strong contenders for the remainder of the season and we are excited to see what the rest of the year will have in store for this powerhouse team.”
