Introducing the Cycle Zone KTM race team

Managed by Team Principal Jeff Crutcher, the organization will see Cheyenne Harmon of Ft. Worth, Texas and Carter Biese of Appleton, Wisconsin aboard 2023 Cycle Zone KTM 250 SXF’s in General Tire Arenacross and Monster Energy Supercross 250 East. Additionally, the team is providing direct support to Supermini athlete Lance Banks during the AX series.

The team will contest in 17 weekends of indoor racing starting with General Tire Arenacross in Topeka, KS. GT AX is a 15 round championship starting in November and finishing in February. After the final round in Memphis, the team will pick up the Supercross 250 East schedule the next week in Tampa, Florida. 9 SX races are on schedule, with the final date in Denver, Colorado.

Jeff Crutcher, Team Principal: “Our team has grown exponentially, and none of the growth has been possible without the chief support from Cycle Zone Powersports. Now in our third year of operation which we are calling ‘Season 3’, I was able to build a program and a paradigm to attract world class talent like Cheyenne and Carter. Nothing about it has been easy, but that’s because I refuse to do anything in any fashion other than the right way. We lost a few fantastic partners from the previous two years, but where one door closes another opens. Capital generation, parts sourcing, and asset allocation has been no breeze while we are in an economic downturn and still on the back end of the supply chain crisis from 2020. However, small businesses in America are doing well and we have partnered with an eccentric group of companies to fund the effort; providing entry level partner pricing for Formula 1 professional treatment both digitally and in person. We are different than any other team in the paddock, as I operate this unit as a ‘content team that goes racing’.”

Aaron Fisher, Cycle Zone Powersports General Manager: “Our investment in racing through the pro team shows we are committed to the shop’s heritage of racing KTM’s. As we continue to grow into a national caliber dealership, going racing on a professional level shows we are all-in on powersports and the powersports customer. The goal above all else is to provide our customers an experience they will not find at any other dealership in the country. We’re proud of our grassroots culture in the shop, and invite everyone in to see why our award winning operation goes racing.”
