Welcome to a new feature on mxpmag.com. In this first installment of ‘Sound Check,’ we check in with KTM Red Bull Royal Distributing Fox Racing’s Kaven Benoit who was on his way to buy groceries when we rang him up last night. Benoit has just returned to the Georgia Practice Facility after taking a break from the grind to spend some time at his home in Bon Conseil, Quebec.

After shaking down a KTM 250 SX two-stroke for the past month, Benoit is now going back to his KTM 250 SX-F four-stroke before he and the KTM Canada team decide how many ‘strokes’ they need to win the MX2 championship this summer. Hit ‘play’ on the video below to listen in on our conversation and enjoy some of the finest photos from James Lissimore….
