I believe KTM made the desision, as well as many other company's (honda, yamaha, kawasaki, suzuki) have cut back on their factory rides due to the economic status. I forgot where i read it, i think on the GNCC website, if i remember correct Kiser is going to be a privateer on a yamaha with some support from yamaha. Dont quote me on that tho.
I have found out that in this Causa yet the last word is not spoken. KTM is to be held anxious KISER, because he is a very likeable person and good and intelligent Racer, however, in times like these with financial crisis etc., no group has it really easily in the USA.
About Kiser hes riding in the huevos eleven toghether with mc gill on KTM doing a 5 minutes XC video
Would be bad to go to Yamaha bad for KTM tough but i can understand if KTM is not willing to pay anymore its their loss.
Yes very a great pity around Taylor Kiser, the presently ruling financial crisis apparently requires one or other incision what concerns the sporty activities. Other brands in other sports have completely finished her engagement (Moto GP, WRC)
