Silly Season 2024 | The Full List? - Round Five 111

It's the best time of year! Silly Season, the best gossip and what is likely to happen for 2024

Welcome back! Silly Season is nearing its long-winded end, with most deals having been announced and just a couple of straggling announcements await. We've updated a few more teams, cleared up a few position changes, and added a couple of little rumors since our last version.

We now have around 190 team positions listed and over 110 riders either in their locked-in home or the rumor of where they could end up. Any surprises in here for you?

Team Honda HRC 



Team Honda HRC has some minor changes but for the most part will look familiar. The Lawrence brothers will be at Anaheim 1 aboard 450s, while Chance Hymas will have a new 250 teammate in Jo Shimoda.

Incoming Riders:

#30 Jo Shimoda (250 West): Jo Shimoda rejoins Honda and will enter his first year of racing for Team Honda HRC on a two-year contract for 2024 and 2025. His gear situation looks similar to his Pro Circuit days, except with a change to Fox helmets. His mechanic will be Ben Griffith and Jo continues as a Monster Energy athlete.

Shimoda Gear: Fox helmets, Scott goggles, Fox gear, and Fox boots.

Returning Riders:

#18 Jett Lawrence (450): 2024 will mark the first full-time 450 season for Jett Lawrence. We expect Jett to continue in his current gear deals. Jett continues as a Red Bull athlete.

J Lawrence Gear: Alpinestars helmets, 100% goggles, Alpinestars gear, and Alpinestars boots.

#96 Hunter Lawrence (450): Hunter Lawrence is extremely likely to step up to the 450 full-time alongside his brother for 2024. Hunter continues as a Red Bull athlete and head-to-toe Alpinestars.

H Lawrence Gear: Alpinestars helmets, Alpinestars goggles, Alpinestars gear, and Alpinestars boots. 

#48 Chance Hymas (250 East): Chance Hymas enters the second year of his pro deal for 2024, which runs through 2025. We expect him to continue with all his personal sponsors, including Fly and Monster Energy.

Hymas Gear: Fly Racing helmets, Scott goggles, Fly Racing gear, and Alpinestars boots. 

Departing Riders:

#23 Chase Sexton: Chase Sexton departs Team Honda HRC after four-and-a-half years. Reference Red Bull KTM.

Phoenix Racing 


Phoenix Racing will likely downsize for 2024 in its Supercross program to be more focused on its returning riders. The long-time Honda team has some interest from other OEMs, but is re-upping with RideRed for 2024 and beyond.

Team Gear: 6D helmets, 100% goggles, Moose gear, and Alpinestars boots.

Rumored Riders:

#14 Dylan Ferrandis (450): Ferrandis has signed with Phoenix Honda for 2024 and will compete in the full season.

Ferrandis gear: Bell helmets, 100% goggles, O'Neal gear, Five gloves, and Alpinestars boots.

Kyle Peters (#1 in AX and 250 East)Kyle Peters will be returning from a near career-ending neck injury. Right now it sounds like Peters will focus solely on defending his #1 plate in Arenacross but after their season is wrapped up, we may see Kyle at a few later rounds of 250 East Coast SX.

Monster Energy Kawasaki


Things to be status quo for the Monster Energy Kawasaki squad for 2024. Adam Cianciarulo has an existing contract in play for the new season and we believe Jason Anderson will return on a new contract as his current one expires after the 2023 season. What about rumors of Dylan Ferrandis? We don't expect them to come true as the team retains Jason Anderson on a new two-year deal and there's not the budget to go for a third top-level rider. 

Returning Riders:

#9 Adam Cianciarulo (450): Adam Cianciarulo enters the second year of his current deal with Kawasaki.

Cianciarulo Gear: Fox helmets, Fox goggles, Fox gear, and Fox boots.

Monster Energy/Pro Circuit Kawasaki


Mitch Payton's legendary team has some movement going into 2024. Three returning riders, two incoming, and two departing. Read below for more details on the Monster Energy Pro Circuit Kawasaki squad.

Team gear: Bell helmets, Scott goggles, Fox gear, and Fox boots.

Incoming Riders:

#20 Maximus Vohland (250 West): Maximus is set to ride for the same team his father raced for in 2000 and 2001.

#47 Levi Kitchen (250 West): Pro Circuit's big signing for 2024, as they beat out both Red Bull KTM and Triumph Racing for Levi Kitchen's services. Kitchen joins the team on a two-year deal and we've heard unlike the other riders on the team, he may have the freedom to ride and train outside of California. Sounds like Levi will be riding at the Moto Sandbox when he's Florida-based.

Returning Riders:

#43 Seth Hammaker (250 East): Hammaker begins the second year of his current two-year deal in 2024. Meaning 2024 is a contract year for Seth Hammaker. 

#63 Cameron McAdoo (250 East): McAdoo begins the second year of his current two-year deal in 2024. Meaning 2024 is a contract year for Cameron McAdoo.

#64 Austin Forkner (250 East): With recent rule changes, Austin Forkner is no longer on the bubble to be bumped out of the 250 class. He has been retained for the 2024 season at Pro Circuit. He has also changed his program up quite a bit, parting ways with long-time coach Robby Reynard, and now linking up with Ryan Hughes for on-the-bike coaching, along with Charles Dao handling his fitness and off-the-bike work.

Departing Riders:

Jo Shimoda: Jo Shimoda had multiple teams after him for 2024 and has ultimately decided to move on from Pro Circuit. Reference HRC Honda.

Jett Reynolds: Jett Reynolds will not continue on with Pro Circuit in 2024. As of now, he doesn't have a home for 2024.

Rockstar Husqvarna Factory Racing


The Rockstar Energy Husqvarna team will see a lot of returning faces and possibly one change-up on the 250 side of things. There was also speculation that Rockstar Energy would continue with the team after 2023, as their contract was coming to an end. While not 100% confirmed, it's looking very likely that Rockstar Energy will renew with Factory Husqvarna on a multi-year deal for 2024 and beyond. Lastly, the team's goggle deal with Scott has fallen through. The 250 riders might be able to do their own deals if nothing is secured soon.

250 Team Gear: Fly Racing helmet, Goggles, Fly Racing gear, and Gaerne boots.

Incoming Riders: 

#83 Guillem Farres (250 East): The Spanish sensation, Guillem Farres, joins Husqvarna Factory Racing for 2024. Farres was with Star Racing in 2023.

#28 Christian Craig (450): Craig enters the second year of his two-year deal with Husqvarna.

Craig Gear: Fox helmets, Fox goggles, Fox gear, and Fox boots.

#24 RJ Hampshire (250 West): RJ started 2023 on a one-year contract now he has a new two-year deal with options beyond 2025.

Hampshire Gear: Fly helmets, Oakley goggles, Fly gear, and Gaerne boots.

Casey Cochran (SX Futures, 250 SX East and MX): Cochran begins his A class/Pro season. We believe you'll see Casey participate in the opening rounds of SX Futures, then head to East Coast Supercross, and then a full season of Pro Motocross...

Cochran Gear: Fly helmets, Oakley goggles, Fly gear, and Gaerne boots.

Departing Riders:

Talon Hawkins: Hawkins looks to have landed a home with AEO for 2024. Reference AEO Powersports KTM.

Returning Riders:

Monster Energy Yamaha Star Racing


The Monster Energy Star Racing Yamaha team has some big decisions to make this off-season with the 450 team but their 250 squad is pretty much locked in. Cooper Webb is returning, Dylan Ferrandis is out, and Eli Tomac is back for at least Supercross. Also, they've picked up Progressive Insurance as a sponsor...

Gavin Towers (SX Futures and 250 MX?): Similar to Daxton Bennick's deal in 2023, amateur racer Gavin Towers is on a tryout/handshake deal with Star Racing that will take the young racer through SX Futures. If it goes well, we suspect to see him on the line at some Pro Motocross rounds. Maybe even the whole season?

Enzo Lopes (250 West - SX only): Lopes will join Star Racing on a one-year Supercross-only contract.

Returning Riders

#3 Eli Tomac (450 SX Only): Eli Tomac has confirmed he is coming back in 2024 and as of now it's a Supercross-only deal.

Tomac Gear: Bell helmets, Oakley goggles, Alpinestars gear, and Alpinestars boots.

#57 Nate Thrasher (250 East): For the fourth season, Nate Thrasher will be racing with Star.

#59 Daxton Bennick (250 West): After going to Star Racing on a handshake agreement for SX Futures in 2023, Daxton Bennick has been rewarded with a two-year deal taking him into 2024 and 2025 with the team.

MotoConcepts Honda



Things have been quiet for MotoConcepts Racing. With their focus changing primarily to World Supercross and the unknown future of that series, our best information points to the team again doing 250 West Coast Supercross in 2024. The team has also switched mid-way through 2023 from head-to-toe Leatt over to Alpinestars and Canvas products. The team has also seen an overhaul in mechanic staffing, with little-to-no resemblance to where they started in 2023.

Departing Riders:
