Plenty of announcements are coming out of AFT HQ at the moment as the 2021 season nears. The most recent is the launch of the 2021 KTM AFT Singles team. Young Australian, Max Whale, joins Shayna Texter-Bauman (as the recently married racer has chosen to be known as). That means the team is back to a two-rider squad after a season of having just Shayna, who fell below her normal high standards in 2020, finishing 12th in the standings.
Conversely, privateer Whale was second in the standings with one race win. Can the Red Bull KTM team elevate Whale to compete with the phenomenal Dallas Daniels, who smoked all-comers and scored 8 wins from 15 races on the Estenson Yamaha?
FInd out soon. The season starts on Friday 12 March at the Volusia half-mile.
