Colt Nichols was the guy to fill that hole.
But, it was only for the 2022-2023 season, and it was SX-only.
That left him with no ride for the pro outdoor nationals or the next Supercross season.
Luckily, Colt signed a deal with Rick Ware Racing to race the World Supercross Series this summer. Great, for the summer, but doesn’t help him for Monster Energy Supercross.
We’ve seen a new wave of brands entering the professional motocross scene recently. Triumph recently teased their new motocross bikes and Beta Racing, a popular woods racing brand, has announced they’ll be creating new models for motocross and supercross, along with a race team.
Who will be the face of that new Supercross race team?
Well, it looks like none other than Colt Nichols.
The bike below is the new Beta 450RX motocross that they revealed, but it is not Colt Nichols’ specific ride.
