Bench Racing Ammo: Free Agents

It’s not an ideal time to be a professional motocross rider looking for a high-paying factory ride, and in 2010 we’ll more than likely see some top riders take a huge pay cut or even take the entire season off. It’s crazy to think that a rider who won a 450 national and led Team USA to victory in 2009 will probably not have a factory ride (Tedesco). Or even a rider who finished on the podium in AMA Supercross may not be racing at all (Hepler). So who has a ride and who doesn’t? We went down the list of 2010 national numbers below and did our best to fill in the blanks. If you see something amiss, please feel free to email us at letters@racerxonline.com and we’ll get it corrected immediately.
