The FIM World Supercross Championship has today announced the finalisation of the rider roster for the upcoming 2023 season. With the remaining 13 rider spots now filled, the anticipation for the opening round in Birmingham continues to build.
SX Global CEO Adam Bailey said this announcement marks an important milestone in the organisation’s efforts to take Supercross to fans around the world with an even greater spread of international talent.
“Since day one, it’s been our ambition to draw talent from all over the world, and I feel that this
year’s lineup to date supports that,” said Bailey.
“The teams have done a fantastic job assembling a remarkable group of top riders determined

Venezuela, Germany, Australia, Canada and Brazil.
“We have a mix of returning riders and new faces, and each rider brings their own unique style,
personality and fan following that will translate into fantastic racing and intense rivalries.
