Additionally, the group will be featured throughout the summer during broadcasts of the championship on Peacock, NBC, and USA Network. The “KTM Keys to the Moto” will preface the start of each pair of motos in the 450 Class and 250 Class, analysts James Stewart and Ricky Carmichael will bring attention to the most critical elements to success in each race.
