Winter SX - Exciting

Posted on September 30, 2022

No doubt about it, while the 2022 season was a good one, we struggled a lot with the absence of Jeffrey Herlings and Romain Febvre coming in late from his Paris supercross injury and several riders missing the MXoN. 

Tim Gajser gave us a legendary season, adding a fifth World title to his name and putting together his 43rd Grand Prix win and Tom Vialle picked up his second MX2 World title before flying off to USA, but still, 2021 it wasn't.

Those stats by the HRC factory rider will always be impressive and watching somebody breaking records, or closing up on records is always a joy. That fact Gajser is now just seven GP wins away from the legendary Joel Robert is something else, and while Robert held the record for the most GP wins until it was broken by Stefan Everts more than 20 years ago, names like Herlings, Smets and Cairoli have since passed the Belgian great. Will Gajser be the next?

Anyway, with the GP season finished and our interest in the AMA Nationals now over for another year, and of course the Monster Energy Motocross of Nations now also done, we set out sights on the winter and supercross.


It isn’t a bad supercross winter either, with those two World supercross championship rounds in Wales and Australia, not to mention a top heaving Paris Supercross in November. Twice Europe gets to see Team USA hero Eli Tomac, multiple AMA champion Cooper Webb, two time World MX2 champion Marvin Musquin and of course Paris also will have the Lawrence brothers, probably the two of the most exciting riders in the sport at the moment, or at least up there with Chase Sexton, Jeffrey Herlings and Tim Gajser.

We also have the return of the Arenacross series in the UK with , the strongest and most professional indoor series in Europe and so excited to see this series back.

We will once again get some major supercross action from Germany this winter, although just two rounds after the third round on November 29-30 in Chemnitz was cancelled.


So, a nice busy winter to keep us all entertained until the AMA supercross championship begins in January of 2023 and then we can get into the real stuff, the European pre-season races and finally the crown jewel of our sport, the MXGP and MX2 championship in late February or early March (calendar for that any day now).

2023 is going to be a busy year with the MXGP and MX2 championships, the Ernee held Monster Energy Motocross of Nations, the AMA supercross, AMA motocross, AMA Supermotocross series (three rounds) and of course the all-new World Supercross championship, that runs from June until November, all around the World. 

Yes, 2023 will make sure we get more than we ever expected and a load of World class events. More events sure to come up, so keep an eye out for our World calendar for any updates.
