Cole will be in his own gear deals, partnering with TLD on gear and helmets, along with 100% goggles and Alpinestars boots.

Honda Genuine Racing is also known as Firepower Honda here in the states and as the Factory Honda racing program in Australia. They have a mix of riders from these programs along with Ken Roczen. The team has parted ways with Twisted Development on their US program since AMA Supercross ended and has gone in-house with their development.

WSX - 450 Class

#15 Dean Wilson | Scotland | 30

The tall lad from Scotland joins the Honda Genuine Racing program and their US counterpart, Firepower Honda, for World SX in 2022...US Supercross in 2023...and World SX in 2023. Dean Wilson will continue with Rockstar Energy Husqvarna through Motocross of Nations, aboard team Great Britain. After this, he will jump on Supercross with his new team to prepare for the upcoming World SX series. Dean Wilson will swap from O'Neal and his usual gear sponsors to a new kit with the team. He will be in Fly Racing helmets, gear, and goggles, with Alpinestars boots.

#94 Ken Roczen | Germany | 28

After a public falling out between himself and American Honda HRC, Ken has chosen to continue into World SX aboard a Honda Genuine Racing CRF450R with little to no parts from his prior machine. He just began testing this team's 450 this week at MTF. Also, while the rest of the team is utilizing Pirelli tires...it looks as if Roczen will be on Dunlops. He will also differ from the team by running Fox head-to-toe. Lastly, it sounds like Ken Roczen's bike will differ in look from the rest of the team with "KR94" themed graphics and sponsorship placement.

WSX - 450 Class

Ryan Breece will compete aboard a YZ450F similar to the spec he used in Supercross this year in his own program. It seems Breece has been back on SX for at least a month in preparation for the series. Breece will be racing in UFO gear, Arai helmets, EKS brand goggles, and Alpinestars boots.

Photo

Joey Savatgy will compete on a Kawasaki KX450 prepared by Pro Circuit. Rumor is he's coming into the series with some form of foot or ankle injury and has very limited bike time. It's likely that Savatgy will race in Fly Racing helmets and gear, along with Scott goggles and Alpinestars boots.

Colt Nichols will compete on a Yamaha YZ250F prepared by Twisted Development and Enzo Racing. It looks like Colt has about two weeks aboard his new machine after spending the past month or so prior on a KTM 450 SX-F preparing for Supercross with a team that never quite materialized. It's likely that Colt will race in O'Neal gear,. Potentially in Bell helmets, 100% goggles and Alpinestars boots as well.

Monster Energy CDR Yamaha

The factory Yamaha 450 program from Australia will enter the series with their two regular Aussie racers along with two incoming Americans. One has experience with the team and the other is new to the CDR program. The team has a solid 450 technical program but they haven't utilized 250s in quite some time. We believe their 250 program is a combination of technical support from the Aussie Yamaha 250 program (Serco Racing), Enzo Racing and CDR's own in-house knowledge. The team will run its usual kit of head-to-toe Fox with gear, helmets, goggles, and boots.
