While many of us are busy hibernating, we can still look forward to AMA Supercross while we’re stuck inside.Yamaha just announced its 250 and 450 riders for the 2020 season, so let’s take a look.
Defending 250SX West Champ Dylan Ferrandis, Justin Cooper, and Colt Nichols will all be joined by Shane McElrath to fight for the Monster Energy 250SX Division titles. McElrath may be a newcomer to the Blu Cru, but he brings several years of 250 class experience to the table and is ready to compete.
Meanwhile, in the 450 SX class, Monster Energy Yamaha Factory Racing will field Aaron Plessinger and Justin Barcia. Both riders faced injuries in the 2019 season, but Plessinger is confident that he’s all healed up for 2020, and Barcia also feels ready to go when the new season starts up in Anaheim in January.
