Good news fans of Aaron Plessinger! Today the Red Bull KTM Factory Team announced that Aaron Plessinger is IN for the entire Pro Motocross Championship.

We haven’t seen AP in action since he fractured his proximal ulna bone in the elbow at the Foxborough Supercross in April. A couple days later the team announced that he would be out for the remainder of the Monster Energy Supercross Championship.

We haven’t heard much out of the AP7 camp since Nashville when he signed his one-year contract extension with KTM that will put him on the team throught the 2025 season. We were told that he was expected to return for the motocross season, but now we have official word that he is.

The Red Bull KTM press release on Plessinger is as follows:

Fan favorite Plessinger will make his anticipated and welcome return from a fractured elbow that unfortunately ended his Supercross season prematurely. The Cowboy – himself a former 250MX National Champion – has been busy preparing in the background during recent weeks, due to race his way back to 100 percent fitness when the gates drop and the season opens. Last year, the 28-year-old finished third in the final 450MX standings with three podiums to his credit.

Aaron Plessinger: “I love racing outdoors, so can’t wait for the season to start – outdoor fans are my people! I’ve been back on my bike riding motocross for a few weeks now after injuring my elbow during Supercross. It’s actually given me a bit of a head start on the other guys, so I guess that’s the positive on what was a negative of having my SX season cut short. I’m looking forward to getting amongst the fans every weekend and having a good time with the Red Bull KTM Factory Racing Team crew every weekend.”

Plessinger has been riding with Rockstar Energy Husqvarna’s Christian Craig in preparation for the upcoming Pro Motocross Championship. Craig was just on the Squad Pod on the Vurbmoto Podcast Network and you can listen to that here.
