UPDATED: The press release has been rescinded due to developments in the situation...

There's about four replacements for the 2022 World Supercross Series that will be announced this week and the first of these is in relation to Colt Nichols. The 2021 250 East Coast champion has opted out of the series, stating a lack of preparation and pace.

I'm having a hard time believing that Henry Miller has more pace heading into WSX than Colt Nichols, regardless of Colt's state of readiness. Weird.

"Colt's caliper" 🤣 No idea about his brakes, but Colt himself is a high calibre of rider for sure and I'm interested to see what comes of this, sounds a little suspect for sure.

That said, who knows, maybe he's just not feeling back to his best yet and the last thing he wants is to get smoked due to health/readiness issues by a depleted / smaller numbered field compared to an AMA event.

I took that as.. Colt’s got himself a new factory ride that didn’t want him racing the county fair series.

Hopefully this just means good news for Colt and he landed a solid ride for AMA.

Wow ML, if that’s true, KR not only burned the bridge, but tore down the house along with it. That was FAST!

Agree with your assessment of Jett, no reason to push 450 sx. Kenny to Colt, talk about a downgrade for HRC.

I will feel a lot better about this WSX series when the cheques start to clear.

No TV a week before the event is a worry for me.

Wont be going as we are racing in Europe that weekend, but lots of folk i know seem to be going, i cant see it being as busy as the Speedway GP, but we will see.

I think it'd be a case of even if you could kick up a fuss and get them back, would you want them back?

I know none of these are in their best interest as a racer wanting to prove themselves, but they can shit talk the team, they can half ass it, they can play "injured" all the time, it's prpbably just not worth trying to force retaining someone who has a genuinely better offer elsewhere as they'll resent it.

I'm not saying this specifically about Colt, and as ML said he's not been released yet, but I expect he'd do his best regardless as he wants to back up that his 250 Championship wasn't a fluke (and I don't think it was and I'd like to see him have more good results).

Holy crap. At first I was surprised by this action, especially for a 13 year member....then I looked at their post history.

Stage 5 clinger alert!

LOL

On topic:

It will be interesting to see how this will play out. I didn't believe CN has a lack of prep or pace for a second.

It might be Star now too, especially with Colt's crappy luck last year, but usually, it's only a few of the main corporate 450 Factory teams that are making tons of money already- That hold their guys back from going.

Hopefully what he's saying is true because that at least would mean he's healthy.

I just hope he stays healthy because he has the talent to have had multiple championships by this age already. He's That Good imo... He's really really good indoors specifically.

Good for Colt. 3 months on the HRC bike will put him in good shape for A1.

Oh my god its Alex Palou in Indycar all over again. So does this mean that Rick Ware is going to try to force him to race, or maybe forcing HRC or Colt himself to buy out the contract?

It’s been a long time coming.

If I recall, wb173 did think DonM was Swap at one point. When he realized his mistake, he doubled down and acted like it was a joke all along. Been stalking DonM ever since.

Over 300 post, and I think 100% of them have been about you? Creep show for sure.

I'd go with the latest option. Probably willing to get more than a warm handshake out of it, now.
