At a team meeting this morning in KTM's Temecula, CA, headquarters, Larry Brooks gave his two weeks' notice. Brooks is one of the most determined and passionate team managers in the business and was previously at the helm of the Chaparral Yamaha race team, where he won a championship with Jeremy McGrath.

Said Brooks, "I called a team meeting this morning and let everyone know that after the supercross season, I will be leaving the team. I just had a difference of opinion about some issues with the management in Austria, and I will be looking at other options."

While Brooks kept his comments brief, the widespread speculation is that he will be managing Chad Reed's new team, with Reed and Nathan Ramsey as the riders.
We'll keep you posted as more develops.
