'21 Silly Season, v2 6

There are a lot of changes since v1, with official (and unofficial) updates on teams, and a bunch of blanks filled in for mechanics.

'21 Silly Season, v2

Here's round two of '21 Silly Season, with official updates on Motoconcepts, TLD GasGas, Mookie to Star Yamaha (who saw that coming?), unofficial update on JGR, and a bunch of blanks filled in for mechanics. This year has featured more moves, and a compressed time schedule (due to the late end to the National season), so things are definitely happening at a different pace from normal. Some teams are lamenting delayed budgets, and bikes that are hard to find. As always, if you've got info to add, a legit team logo, or anything to help fill in the blanks, feel free to fire off an email to GuyB.

Note: Updated with new AMA numbers, and for guys who use numbers in their IG handle, we will update rider social links as they change to reflect their current numbers. Oh, and feel free to follow us on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.

Zach's 450 outdoor title was a high point (as was the 1-2-3 sweep at the final 450 Supercross race), but we'd love to be able to wave the magic anti-injury wand over the rest of the lineup.
