Silly season is coming in hot, heavy and early this year folks.
The bombshell of course was Eli Tomac leaving Kawasaki for Star Racing Yamaha. But, in the last couple weeks, we’ve also learned that Christian Craig is returning to Star Racing Yamaha for next year, Zach Osborne is staying at Rockstar Energy Husqvarna, and Marvin Musquin is probably staying at Red Bull KTM.
And of course there are the rumors of Aaron Plessinger to Red Bull KTM and Jason Anderson to Monster Energy Kawasaki.
That’s a lot! Take a second to gather yourself.
On the PulpMX Show on Monday we got even more news, as Jalek Swoll confirmed that he is returning to Rockstar Energy Husqvarna on a two-year deal.
“We signed the whole agreement deal, we are just going over the processes, and all the little things we want to do,” he said. “But yeah, for the most part I’m inked in for another two.”
After a shoulder injury hampered him in his rookie year, Swoll has had a breakout 2021 campaign. He finished fifth overall in the 250SX West Region, which included his first career podium at Arlington 2. He’s carried that over into Lucas Oil Pro Motocross, where he’s gone 11-7 in the first two rounds.
Listen to Jalek’s full interview and the entire show below.
