Ken De Dycker has claimed that he wants to compete for another two years in the FIM Motocross World Championship and is now searching for a viable package to remain in MXGP and is allegedly continuing talks with the factory Rockstar Energy Suzuki World MXGP team.
The 31-year-old returned to the international stage for the Motocross of Nations and helped post results that gave the Belgians their eighth successive podium in the competition.
It was the last high profile outing for the Red Bull KTM team by the former Grand Prix winner with three different brands, although he wants to continue representing the Austrians while he searches for employment for 2016. “This is the last [race] for KTM but I want to do some smaller races, some beach races but I need to ask if it is possible,” he said at Ernee. “I need to wait and see what rumours are coming up and I’m not sure what I will do next year yet.”
De Dycker then spoke of his desire to compete until the age of 33 and with moments of impressive speed at the 69th edition of the Nations improved his chances of another contract. He has represented Honda, and then Suzuki, Yamaha and KTM at factory level.
With Steven Frossard still apparently unsure of a complete recovery time from a back injury De Dycker could be an option for the Suzuki team situated in Lommel and with currently no fit riders available for 2016 testing.
