“Nuclear Blast Records is extremely excited about the partnership with Nuclear Blast KTM for the 2016 Monster Energy Supercross Season”, commented Nuclear Blast’s General Manager, Gerardo Martinez. “Growing up a HUGE moto fan and being able to help one of the more important and up and coming teams is a great deal; we get to work again with our long-time friend and former racer himself, Ryan Clark. We can’t wait for the season to start, Zac Commans and Cole Thompson have a lot of potential and the label and team can’t wait to see them out there. As usual, we are planning some cool things for the pits bringing together the two scenes.“
