Red Bull KTM Factory Racing continues their schedule and programme for the 2022 MXGP FIM Motocross World Championship as MX2 title contender, Tom Vialle, makes his first competitive appearance of the year this year weekend in France. Full 2022 images are now online.

The 21-year-old Frenchman will race in front of expectant native fans at the scenic, compact and hard-packed circuit located in the centre of the LaCapelle Marival town.

The annual International pre-season meeting. ‘Masters of Motocross’ is back on the agenda for the first time since 2020 and around the course hosted the 2021 Grand Prix of France.

Vialle will compete with his brand new KTM 250 SX-F as the team maintain their testing. And development work ahead of the opening round of the FIM world championship in the UK on February 20th

Lacapelle will be not only the 2020 world champion’s first race of the year. And the first in his 2022 livery and with the innovative KTM 250 SX-F. He will face several MX2 Grand Prix peers.

The team will then travel to Great Britain to contest the Hawkstone Park International the following weekend. Vialle triumphed at the last edition of the sandy fixture in 2020 when he went 4-1 in two damp motos to walk the top of the overall podium.


Tom Vialle“It hasn’t been such a long off-season since the final Grand Prix of 2021, but I took quite a long break because of my foot fracture. 

I worked a lot physically, but it’s been just over a month since I started riding. So, perhaps less bike time than usual, but I feel better every training session. 

I’m happy to go to Lacapelle because it’s a nice track and a decent place to try the new bike in race conditions and know where we are for set-up. 

It’s good to have some gate drops there and in England before the first GP because we like mix racing on hard-pack and in the sand to know our feeling.”
