The 2022 Monster Energy Supercross season is approaching quickly and its all set to kick off at Angel Stadium in Anaheim, California, on Saturday, January 8th. In this article, we’ve combined a list of the major teams and riders who have signed contracts for the 2022 Supercross and motocross seasons.

Here’s a rundown of how the pit area will look at rounds of the Monster Energy Supercross Championship and Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship.

Read below to see who’s moved and who’s staying with their team for 2022:

Red Bull KTM

Cooper Webb | 450 SX & 450 MX
Aaron Plessinger | 450 SX & 450 MX
Marvin Musquin | 450 SX
Maximus Volhand | 250 SX & 250 MX

Team Principals | Ian Harrison, Roger De Coster

It’s official: Plessinger will ride a KTM 450 SX-F in 2022 and 2023. The deal includes a full-time training program through the Baker’s Factory, with his time split between KTM’s testing facility in California and the private practice track in Florida. Personal endorsements will keep Plessinger in wares from Alpinestars, Thor MX, and 100%. In addition, Jade Dungey will act as his race wrench, a return to Red Bull KTM for the longtime mechanic.

Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing

Dean Wilson | 450 SX & 450 MX
Malcolm Stewart | 450 SX & 450 MX
RJ Hampshire | 250 SX & 250 MX
Jalek Swoll | 250 SX & 250 MX
Stilez Robertson | 250 SX & 250 MX

Team Principals | Steve Westfall, Sean Murphy, Roger De Coster

Malcolm Stewart has a two-year agreement with a factory team in the 450 Class for the first time in his career. As we’ve mentioned many times before, the contract means Mookie will race the complete SX and MX series each season and follow Aldon Baker’s training program. He has kept Seven MX, Shoei, SCOTT, and Gaerne as personal gear sponsors.

Troy Lee Designs/Red Bull/GASGAS Factory Racing

Justin Barcia | 450 SX & 450 MX
Michael Mosiman | 250 SX & 250 MX
Pierce Brown | 250 SX & 250 MX

Team Principals | Tyler Keefe, Rich Simmons, Troy Lee, Roger De Coster

Team Honda HRC

Ken Roczen | 450 SX & 450 MX
Chase Sexton | 450 SX & 450 MX
Jett Lawrence | 250 SX & 250 MX
Hunter Lawrence | 250 SX & 250 MX

Team Principals | Lars Lindstrom, Naoki Serizawa, Bill Savino, Brandon Wilson

Roczen enters the last year of his current contract with Honda, a three-year deal he inked in 2019 that includes participation in SX and MX. How much longer does KR94 plan to race?

Monster Energy/Star Racing/Yamaha

Eli Tomac | 450 SX & 450 MX
Dylan Ferrandis | 450 SX & 450 MX
Christian Craig | 250 SX/450 MX
Colt Nichols | 250 SX & 250 MX
Justin Cooper | 250 SX & 250 MX
Jeremy Martin | 250 SX & 250 MX
Nate Thrasher | 250 SX & 250 MX
Levi Kitchen | 250 SX & 250 MX

Team Principals | Brad Hoffman, Jeremy Coker, Jensen Hendler, Bobby Regan

Tomac is by far the most important of the signing season, a move that will increase ET’s input in the bike’s setup and could set off the next part of his career. We hear this new contract is a one-year agreement, with the option for an extension if things go well. Tomac will remain in Colorado for much of the offseason

Monster Energy Kawasaki

Adam Cianciarulo | 450 SX & 450 MX
Jason Anderson | 450 SX & 450 MX

Team Principals | Dan Fahie, Bruce Stjernstrom

Anderson’s move to Kawasaki is a tremendous change. The two-year agreement is seen as a potential rejuvenator, as it pairs Anderson with mechanic Jason Montoya and crew chief Theo Lockwood, puts him on an aluminum-framed bike for the first time in his pro career, and spurred a move to Southern California for convenient prep and practice.

Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki

Jo Shimoda | 250 SX & 250 MX
Austin Forkner | 250 SX & 250 MX
Seth Hammaker | 250 SX & 250 MX
Jett Reynolds | 250 SX & 250 MX
Cameron McAdoo | 250 SX & 250 MX

Team Principals | Mitch Payton, Ian Southwell

Twisted Tea/HEP Motorsports/Suzuki

Brandon Hartranft | 450 SX & 450 MX
Adam Enticknap | 450 SX
Justin Bogle | 450 SX & 450 MX

Team Principals | Dustin Pipes, Clark Jones, Dave Dye

Bogle’s inclusion in the team benefits both parties: he has a history on Suzuki equipment, which could point the team in a good direction for setup, while HEP’s program offers him a chance to do what he wants on/off the bike and to train in Florida.

BARX/Chaparral/ECSTAR/Suzuki

Carson Mumford | 250 SX & 250 MX
Dilan Schwartz | 250 SX & 250 MX
Preston Kilroy | 250 SX & 250 MX
Derek Drake | 250 SX & 250 MX

Team Principals | Larry Brooks

Rocky Mountain ATV-MC/WPS/KTM

Shane McElrath | 450 SX & 450 MX
Max Anstie | 450 SX & 450 MX
Joey Savatgy | 450 SX & 450 MX

Team Principals | Forrest Butler, Mark Mackenzie, Dylan Rash, Derek Rankin, Seth Rarick

Anstie continues his time in the US through a new deal (he is said to have a history with Mackenzie) and a move to Florida for training at the 83 Compound. This will be Anstie’s second stint on Austrian equipment; the last was with Standing Construct KTM in Europe.

SmarTop/Bullfrog Spas/MotoConcepts/Honda

Justin Brayton | 450 SX
Vince Friese | 250 SX/450 SX
Mitchell Oldenburg | 250 SX/450 SX

Team Principals | Mike Genova, Tony Alessi

Brayton returns to the team for 2022, with a Supercross-only deal billed as his final full season racing the 450 Class. Don’t call it a career yet; Brayton has expressed interest in lining up for limited races or overseas events in the future, should the opportunities line up.

Phoenix Racing Honda

Coty Schock | 250 SX & 250 MX*
Kyle Peters | 250 SX
Cullin Park | 250 SX
Josh Osby | 250 SX

Team Principals | David Eller

Monster Energy/Lucas Oil/Team Tedder/KTM

Benny Bloss | 450 SX

Team Principals | Matt Tedder, Dakota Tedder

AJE Motorsports/Motul/GASGAS

Chris Blose | 250 SX
Mitchell Harrison | 250 SX
Mitchell Falk | 250 SX

Team Principals | Tony Eyrich, Eric Burkhart, Dustin Turner

MUC-OFF/ FXR / CLUB MX Yamaha

Alex Martin | 450 SX & 450 MX
Phil Nicoletti | 250 SX & 450 MX
Garrett Marchbanks | 250 SX & 250 MX
Enzo Lopes | 250 SX & 250 MX
Jace Owen | 250 SX
Dominique Thury | 250 SX

Team Principals | Brandon Haas

Alex Martin has made the big move to the 450 Class, and 2022 will be the first year that he pursues the full 29-race calendar. This is a big change for the elder Martin brother in many ways, partly because it required him to break from many personal sponsors (Arai, 100%, Answer Racing) and comes with increased expectations. He will split his time between the team’s compound in South Carolina and the Moto Sandbox in Florida.

Fire Power Honda 250 East Region Only

Jarrett Frye | 250 SX
Jordon Smith | 250 SX

Team Principals | Yarrive Konsky, Martin Davalos

SGB Racing Honda

Alex Ray | 450 SX
Cade Clason | 450 SX & 450 MX
Jeremy Hand | 250 SX & 450 MX
Jace Kessler | 250 SX & 450 MX
Luke Neese | 250 SX

Team Principals | Jason Butschky, Alex Ray

Partzilla PR-MX

Justin Hill | 450 SX
Hunter Sayles | 250 SX & 450 SX
Justin Thompson | 250 SX
Justin Rodbell | 250 SX
Julien Benek | 250 SX
Brandon Ray | 250 SX

Team Principals | Julien Perrier

Justin Hill’s addition is by far the biggest detail: it’s the first time that a former AMA champion has ridden for the team and brings Hill back to the track after a year away. The Supercross-only deal will put Hill in the 450 Class, with preseason training taking place at South of the Border in South Carolina. Hill will wear O’Neal gear and helmets.
