While we haven’t even gotten through the entire 2023 Monster Energy AMA Supercross Championship, this off-season has me foaming at the mouth.
After Ken Roczen dominated off-season headlines a year ago (which was awesome, btw) this coming Silly Season is going to be BANANAS.
Pretty much EVERYONE is up and that doesn’t include any 250 riders who may move up. LOOK AT THIS LIST BELOW!
Note: Just because a contract is “up” does not mean we are implying that rider is leaving the team. Also, this is only 450 Class.

Cooper Webb – Signed a one-year extension this off-season.
Aaron Plessinger – Two-year deal ends in 2023.
Marvin Musquin – On SX-only one-year deal for 2023.
