A handful of rumours about Brian Moreau have been floating around the Grand Prix paddock lately and, unsurprisingly, it now seems that similar stories have now hit the American scene. That speculation has linked Moreau to a seat on the Troy Lee Designs Red Bull KTM team in 2020. It is no surprise that he is interested in the American scene, as that has always been a goal, but the fact that he has caught the eye of a factory effort has caught some off guard. MX Vice correspondent Steve Matthes shared the rumour on his social-media accounts.
Lots of rumours out there that TLD KTM has signed Frenchman Brian Moreau for next year. – @PulpMX
Brian Moreau did actually compete in the Amateur All-Star class at the previous edition of the Monster Energy Cup and secured fifth overall via a brace of fourths in the two main events. All of the riders who beat him are already locked into multi-year deals with factory teams.
