"Obviously I’m very happy to have signed with my new team. RW Racing GP has shown it is a competitive team with a competitive bike. I’m really looking forward to working with this team."

Johan Stigefelt, Team Manager

"We have been watching Jakub closely for a while already. He has shown a lot of potential and we strongly believe it’s a new boost for the team. We’ll continue to work with Kalex KTM and we hope this collaboration will bring us the results we are having this year. We still have four races to go and Luis Salom still has the world title within reach. That remains our goal for the near future. We are sorry to see Luis go, but we wish him all the best with his new team."
