Ryder DiFrancesco has been on an absolute tear lately. After winning both rounds of the MX Sports Pro Racing Scouting Moto Combine in 2021, he’s continued that over into 2022 by dominating the opening two rounds of Supercross Futures.
After sweeping all six of the Supermini motos at the 2020 Loretta Lynn AMA Amateur National Championship, Ryder D moved up to the B Class, but missed Loretta’s in 2021 due to a broken femur.
Well, it appears DiFrancesco will race some rounds of Lucas Oil Pro Motocross in 2022. In an interview with Racer X, he said he will race the last few Pro Motocross rounds following Loretta’s.
“Yeah, Futures and then also Daytona [Ricky Carmichael Amateur Supercross], which isn’t called Futures but you’re still racing the same track as the pros, so I’ll do that. Once supercross is over I’ll focus on outdoors. I didn’t get to race much last year, but I’ll focus on Loretta’s and then the last few [Pro Motocross] nationals after that.”

It will be interesting to see how Ryder D stacks up this summer.
