There has been a ton of amateur Silly Season movement over the last few weeks. Chance Hymas is moving from Team Green Kawasaki to Honda HRC and will ride for Team Honda’s in-house amateur program.
The new deal will have Hymas competing in the Supercross Futures series and Amateur National motocross events, as well as the latter part of the AMA Pro Motocross series in 2022. Hymas is scheduled to move to Team Honda HRC for the 2023 and ’24 seasons.
The other big move was Haiden Deegan moving from KTM to the powerful Monster Energy/Star Racing Yamaha program on a multi-year deal. It is unknown at this time when Deegan will turn pro, but considering he just moved to the 250F after Loretta’s this year, it will probably be at least a year or two.
Well, another move was announced recently, as Preston Boespflug has inked an amateur deal with Team Green Kawasaki for the remainder of 2021 and 2022.
“Super excited to announce I will be riding for @monsterenergy @procircuit78 @racekawasaki for the rest of 2021 and 2022,” he wrote on Instagram. “Thank you to everyone that has gotten me here, couldn’t be more excited for the future! huge thank you to @ryanholliday for believing in me and giving me this opportunity!”
The Washington native has competed the last two years on Hondas, with support from Motosport Hillsboro, a local dealership near to him in Oregon. At Loretta’s in 2021, Boespflug finished fourth overall in 250 B and eighth overall in Schoolboy 2 (12-17) B/C.
