Frossard out of Wilvo KTM team

Steven Frossard has split with his British-based Wilvo Forkrent KTM team this morning, and will not ride the Swedish GP this weekend. The team announced the news today, saying: "The partnership didn't work out as planned and despite repeated attempts to find a solution, it was evident that finding a common ground that would facilitate a turnaround in fortunes was unachievable. Therefore, it has been decided that it would be in the best interest of the team and rider if they went their separate ways."

They admitted it had been a difficult first half of the 2015 season, and that the Frenchman's results had not been as expected. Frossard struggled early on in the season but a recent swop from a 350 to a 450 KTM had improved his results, and he was now a genuine threat to Shaun Simpson in British championships.

The squad won't be without a MXGP rider this weekend as Jake Nicholls makes his return after injury, and in the EMX250 championship, Adam Sterry will attempt to re-take the red plate.
