Beta Confirms Two-Year 450 Supercross Deal with Colt Nichols

The tease is now official. Colt Nichols has inked a two-year deal with the Liqui Moly Beta Racing Team to race the 450SX class in AMA Supercross. 

Nichols joins Benny Bloss as the two factory riders who will compete in the inaugural Supercross season for Beta Motorcycles.

Nichols, the 2021 250SX East Region Champion, spent last year with Honda HRC and won Rookie of the Year honors in his debut 450 season. 

Per the team, Nichols will begin testing soon on the Beta RX as preparation for the 2024 season continues.

Carlen Gardner, Race Team Manager:

“We are very pleased to be working with Colt for the next two years. He is an excellent representative on and off the track and fits in perfectly with our Beta Family. Colt, getting the Rookie of the Year award in the 450 class, proved he has great potential in the premier class, and we look to carry that momentum going into 2024. It was very important to us to find two riders such as Colt and Benny to lead the way as Beta gets into Supercross racing. See everyone at A1!”
