KTM has paid a heartfelt tribute to up-and-coming motocross rider Rene Hofer after he was killed in an avalanche tragedy that claimed the lives of three people.

Hofer, aged 19, was one of 11 people skiing as part of a group in the Austrian mountains near Salzburg when they were caught up in an avalanche that buried five of them. Though two managed to escape free, three perished, including Hofer.

The incident has sent shockwaves through the Motocross community and among KTM, for whom Hofer was competing as a factory-backed racer in the MX2 World Championship.

Picked up by the Austrian company after impressing in the junior ranks, Hofer was competing in his first full season of MX2 but had already secured two victories en route to sixth in the standings and was considered both a title favourite for 2022 and likely to progress to MX1 soon.
