This is old news at this point, but I still haven't found any good information around the forums or anywhere on the internet for that matter. We know that Beta did not sign Kyle for 2017, and word had it that he was shocked at the time....so it's not like they had a disagreement and this was something he saw coming. I hate it when we lose talent to the big Austrian Machine as happened with Cody Webb, and I understand why these guys may jump to a new sponsor to further their careers, but in this case it seems like Beta said "thanks, but we aren't interested in you anymore" Now, Kyle has no shortage of talent and has already picked up a new ride on a Husky, but what does this tell us about Beta's philosophy at least when it comes to the US market? I know Beta doesn't have the deep pockets that KTM has, but guys like Webb, Gerston, and Redmond really put Beta on the map at least in the US! I love Beta, but I'm disappointed in their commitment to keep talent on the team. Hopefully Gerston stays with Beta for a long time. this was the last thing I read from Kyle's Instagram account kyleredmond777So I've been asked a lot recently what I'm doing next season and what bike I'm on. I have been asking myself the same thing but I have parted ways with Beta. It was a little surprising they didn't resign me but I have to move forward and keep my head up. If I've learned anything in the past listening to these negative ppl especially when they have money on there mind is not smart, I know what I've done and I know it's not the best but I'm happy with myself. I will do my best to stay on the track next season and thanks to my family, friends and loyal sponsors.
