Conrad Mewse to be TKO's replacement in MXGP with DIGA Procross KTM Racing

After a serious crash in the qualifying race for the MXGP of Latvia in Kegums in April, DIGA Procross KTM Racing athlete Thomas Kjer Olsen is on the road to recovery.

Due to the severity of the injury and the lengthy rehabilitation, TKO will unfortunately not be able to take part in any more races this year. For this reason, team manager Justin Amian decided, after much deliberation, to give British rider Conrad Mewse the opportunity to compete in the MXGP category on the DIGA Procross KTM Racing Team's KTM SX-F450.

Conrad Mewse, who has already shown his skills several times in the MX2 World Championship and until recently competed with his own team in the MX2 World Championship, will compete for the German DIGA Procross KTM Team in the MXGP class from the MXGP of the Czech Republic until the end of the season.

The 23-year-old Briton has done a number of tests on KTM SX-F 450s over the last few weeks to prepare himself as well as possible for the upcoming tasks.

Justin Amian: „We have been considering for a long time whether to sign a replacement for Thomas Kjer Olsen for the rest of the season. With Conrad Mewse, we were able to win over a young and talented athlete and are looking forward to working together.“

Conrad Mewse: "I’m excited to take on a new challenge with the DIGA Procross KTM racing team this weekend in Loket. I have kindly been given a great opportunity to ride a very strong bike for such a professional team for the remaining GPs of 2022. I can’t thank Anthony at Stebbings for allowing me to take this opportunity aswell as all my other personal sponsors for their loyalty and support. Many thanks to Justin Amian and all parties involved for believing in me.“
