The 2020 Supercross season is upon us with several returning athletes and one new with high hopes when the gate drops. 2018 450 Champion Jason Anderson will be a threat for the win each weekend, getting back on his feet after missing the majority of the 2019 campaign. Zach Osborne made his rookie debut late in the SX season last year but quickly garnered his first podium. A former multi-time 250 champion, he will be aiming as high as anyone. Dean Wilson will be coming in a bit behind the eight ball after an incident at MEC, but he will no doubt give it 100%. Wilson nearly won the opening night main event a year ago in a steady rain.
The 250 squad sees the return of Michael Mosiman who made strides in ’19. He will be expected to vie for the championship and be on or near the podium every round. New to the team is RJ Hampshire. RJ is a veteran of the 250 class and harnesses speed that can’t be taught. A change of scenery saw him move over to the Husky Camp and has been elated with the bike and crew ever since. Hampshire is a contender for a 250 SX crown himself. Moving up to the pro ranks full time is Jalek Swoll. Jalek capped off his very successful amateur career with the coveted Horizon Award in 2019. The award is given to the A-Class rider who shows the most promise as they prepare to begin their professional career. His goal will be to get his feet wet after the big jump to AMA Supercross, but don’t be surprised when he opens some eyes with his talent.
