Who’s Coming-Who’s Going-Who’s Still Looking for 2017

Who’s coming- who’s going’ who’s staying put. As we count down the days until the much-anticipated A1 we are still figuring out where some of the biggest riders are going to end up. One thing is for sure, 2017 Supercross is sure to be bigger and better than ever!

The Cooper Webb, Chad Reed combo on factory Yamaha is sure to be a powerhouse team for 2017. Webb has chosen the much-deserved number 2 as he pairs with the veteran Reed with his career number 22.

Yoshimura Suzuki has closed up operations leaving one of the biggest name stars still without a ride. It has not been released where James Stewart will be pitting for 2017.

Red Bull KTM is remaining steady with Ryan Dungey still under contract for 2017 and welcomes Trey Canard- long time Honda rider to KTM -and Marvin Musquin making up their team.

Unfortunately, the comfort and guarantee of a ride does not come easy for 2017. Many big name riders have yet to ink a deal. Wilson, Hahn, Bogle, Malcolm and James Stewart, Chisholm, Weimer, Tickle are all proven ultra talented riders who remain to solidify their spots in the pits.

As we wait patiently for that first gate drop at Anaheim 1 we also wait impatiently to see where all these riders end up! 2017 will be an epic year with the entire bike and team change ups!
