Australian Supercross: Who Is Riding For Who In 2014?

Author: Aaryn Minerds

Posted:

With the opening round of the 2014 Australian Supercross Championships rapidly approaching we have been trying our hardest to piece together who is riding where and who will be on what colour when the gates drop at Bathurst on Friday the 10th of October.

Unlike most years when riders move straight into Supercross with the teams they raced motocross for, 2014 sees a host of team and rider changes from MX to SX and it has created a mini "Silly Season" with riders locking in SX only contracts for the upcoming series.

Below is a list of rides that we have either confirmed or are being speculated about heading into round one. It certainly is not an exact list, but we will do our best to try and give fans of the sport some indication of who will be where in the SX1 and SX2 classes when things kick off!.
