Slaw and Troy Dog’s Weekly Supercross Power Rankings: Pre-Anaheim 1

Welcome to the 2023 Troy Dog/Slaw Dog Combined 250/450 Top Ten Power Rankings! Slaw and Troy each have created their own list of who they believe carry the most power in the sport of Supercross. They each have created their own categories and have weighted these riders accordingly, whether its speed, following, SX skills, you name it. 

Each week these rankings will be updated so that you guys can argue about how wrong they are in the comment section! Feel free to tell us if we’re right/wrong/or completely dumb. As always, email all complaints to Jason Weigandt.

Slaw’s Pre-A1 Rankings

1. Eli Tomac

2. Jett Lawrence

3. Jason Anderson

4. Chase Sexton

5. RJ Hampshire

6. Ken Roczen

7. Cooper Webb

8. Malcolm Stewart

9. Cameron McAdoo

10. Justin Barcia

Slaw Dog: No need to scroll any further. Troy’s list is trash. He apparently hates the 250 Class as well. Shame. You have to go with Tomac entering the season. He won EVERYTHING last year. Guess who else won a lot? Jett Lawrence. That’s who. He enters as the favorite for the 250 title and comes in second on my list. I have Anderson over Sexton at the moment, but that could change. The rest of the list speaks for itself. Just don’t pay attention to Troy’s list.

Troy Dog’s Pre-A1 (Not as good as Slaw’s) Rankings

1. Eli Tomac

2. Chase Sexton

3. Jett Lawrence

4. Jason Anderson

5. Cooper Webb

6. Malcolm Stewart

7. Ken Roczen

8. Justin Barcia

9. Christian Craig

10. Marvin Musquin

Troy Dog: MY list is the most correct power rankings that this sport has ever seen. You’ll see throughout the season how right I am if you don’t believe me now. How can you not list Tomac and Sexton 1-2 after the year they had in 2022? Jett is the only 250 rider I have on my list to start because he’s won back-to-back 250 motocross titles as well as his SX championship last season. He’s got the world at his fingertips entering 2023. Jason Anderson won seven main events last SX season, finished runner-up in points, and finished third in Lucas Oil Pro Motocross. Two-time 450SX Champion Cooper Webb will be ready for another title run while Stewart, Roczen, Barcia, Craig, and Musquin will all be looking to get in the podium mix. I set the bar high, so good luck coming up with a better top ten.
