Red Bull/KTM’s Ryan Dungey is a two-time Monster Energy Supercross Champion. He won the 2010 Monster Energy Supercross title as a rookie and has since became the most consistent, and one of the most winning 450SX class racers in the sport.

450SX

Chad Reed

Home Town: Australia
Team: TBD
First MEC: 2012
Hobbies: Water sports, Golf

Rider Information :

Chad Reed has been at the top of the sport for the past decade. He is undeniably one of the most talented two-wheel racers in the world, and is always a threat when he kicks his leg over a bike. The 34-year-old Australian has won two Monster Energy Supercross titles and collected 44 career victories, but has never stood on the top step of the podium at the Monster Energy Cup. He will look to change that on October 17th, and will do so with a new team – yet to be announced – after the closing of TwoTwo Motorsports.

While injuries forced him to miss a good portion of the 2015 Monster Energy Supercross Championship, Justin was very strong during the summer series and will be looking to become the first repeat winner of the Monster Energy Cup. One of, if not THE most aggressive racers on the track, look for “Bam Bam” to be banging bars with the fastest racers in the field!

He captured his first Eastern Division 250SX championship in 2015 and then inked a deal with Red Bull KTM to race 450s in 2016.

First MEC: 2014
Hobbies: Snowboarding, Cycling

Rider Information :

Trey Canard is an absolute warrior. He has suffered some of the most devastating injuries, but continues to come back stronger than ever because of his love for the sport. The Oklahoma native saw his 2015 championship hopes dashed after breaking his arm in a crash in Detroit, but he has since had a successful surgery and a strong comeback during outdoors. Combine that with his proven track record at the Monster Energy Cup, and we could see Canard walk away with the “Monster Million.”

Rider Information :

Like Trey Canard, Wil Hahn has faced so much adversity in his young career. Hahn was knocked out of the 2014 Monster Energy Supercross season after a nasty crash in St. Louis and again in 2015 after going down in practice at Anaheim 1. He has the ability to win races and championships – evident with his 2013 Eastern Division 250SX championship – and the backing to get it done, but he must stay healthy.

The holeshot king! Andrew Short has the impressive ability to put his KTM in the lead immediately out of the gate. If he can capitalize on this and nail the joker lane before anyone else, there’s real potential for him to take home the W.

Team: Soaring Eagle Casino RCH Suzuki
First MEC: 2011

Rider Information :

Broc Tickle flanks teammate Ken Roczen at the RCH Racing Suzuki squad, creating a potent duo that has the ability to win at any event. The 2015 Monster Energy Cup will be no different as Tickle will look to continue trending upward with another solid performance. After being sidelined for most of the 2014 Monster Energy Supercross season, Tickle bounced back in 2015 with 13 top-10 finishes, including a season-best finish of fourth at a tricky Atlanta 2 track. He continued to gain ground in outdoors, securing overall finishes of eighth or better in 10 of the 12 races. Tickle’s consistency could put him in position for the overall victory at the 2015 Monster Energy Cup in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Rider Information :

Martin Davalos missed a portion of the 2015 Monster Energy Supercross season due to injury, relegating him to 10th in the Eastern Division 250SX standings. It was a tough pill to swallow as he was hoping to impress in his debut season with the Rockstar Energy Husqvarna squad, but he’ll have another shot come October 17th. Look for a rejuvenated Davalos to turn some heads on a powerful Husqvarna machine.

Since joining the top ranks in 2004, the California native has been one of the fastest riders in the world. His strong starts and aggressive riding style make him a serious threat week in and week out, but consistency is key in Monster Energy Supercross, and that can often prove to be Alessi’s downfall.

Jake Weimer suffered a devastating injury at the Detroit SX back in March and was forced to sit out the second half of the 2015 Monster Energy Supercross season, but has since returned to riding. He still has a long way to come before being 100%, but who doesn’t love an underdog story?
