2019 AMERICAN MOTOCROSS & SUPERCROSS TEAM NEWS
2019 SUPERCROSS & MOTOCROSS RIDER NUMBERS
2019 MONSTER ENERGY SUPERCROSS SERIES SCHEDULE

As the end of the 2018 race season nears, we decided to run through the list of riders with and without contracts for next year. This will be an interesting offseason due to the sheer number of riders that are without known support for 2019. Riders that are locked into multi-year deals have to be relieved, but the big shakeup could occur at this time next year because that’s when the big contracts begin to run out.

Over the last few months, we’ve pieced together more rumors of rider-team deals and have posted official press releases of new deals. Check back over the next few weeks as more details are confirmed.
