Supercross 2018!

2018- Roczen returns, RD is retired and Reed is back for Supercross!

There’s no denying the comeback story of Roczen and his devastating injury take center stage as A1 approaches. All eyes will be on the HRC Honda rider as that first gate drops.

Ryan Dungey’s retirement at the end of 2017 Supercross marks the end of an era. His three back to back Supercross Championships allotted for him to retire on a high note at the peak of his success. We look forward to seeing him commentate with the series for 2018 and beyond!

2018 will see Barcia with a 6-race deal with Monster Energy/Knich/Yamaha Factory racing alongside teammate Cooper Webb. He will be filling in for an injured Davi Millsaps. Barcia comes off of his full privateer ride at the 2017 Monster Energy Cup so we are looking forward to seeing how he does back on the Yamaha!

Marvin Musquin has extended his contract with Red Bull KTM through 2019 and proves to be a title contender especially after his dominating performance at the Monster Energy Cup taking home the Monster Million!

Zach Osbourne, who had a very impressive 2017 winning the championship in the 250 class both in SX and MX- will race a 250 for 2018 Supercross then move to a 450 for Motocross.

Adam Cianciarulo who proved in 2017 he is a title contender as well in the 250 class after taking third in the Motocross Championship. The Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki has a 2-year extension in the lites class to hopefully secure a championship!

Tomac extends his contract with Monster Energy Kawasaki. There is probably no other racer who wants to claim the 2018 Supercross title than Tomac.

JGRMX will debut a new rider for the 250 Class for 2018. Jimmy Decotis joins Justin Hill on the team for West Coast SX. East Coast 250 riders have yet to be determined. Mitchell Harrison debuts on the Rockstar Husqvarna after completing his first-year pro in 2016 on the Yamalube/Star Racing Yamaha.

Where oh where are the Stewarts? The burning question of 2017. We have yet to hear if Malcolm will be lining up at A1. The infamous JS7 has been quiet throughout much of 2017 but his fan base keeps their hopes up.

Trey Canard who hung up his boots in July of 2017 will be seen at Supercross in another avenue. He will be acting as safety ambassador to improve the communication between riders and track staff to ensure their suggestions are heard to keep the riders as safe as possible.

As 2018 begins so does a new structure and format in Supercross. The semi races have been eliminated for qualifying. There is now a triple header race format instead of two for three of the Supercross races at A1-ATL and MN that make up the Triple Crown Series. Changes in the point structure are new to 2018 as well. After two decades of the point structure staying the same we will see a new format. The points remain the same for first, second and third place finishes but the allocation for the 22 remaining spots will be evenly distributed. In addition, there will be two 250SX Class showdowns in Indy and Las Vegas making for an even more exciting night of racing!

T-minus 6 days until Monster Energy Supercross is back!!!!!! Make sure to tune into FOX Sports to catch the action!
