Ken Roczen And Shane McElrath Win 2022 FIM World Supercross Championships


Ken Roczen (C), Just Brayton (R), and Joey Savatgy celebrate on the podium

The pilot season of the FIM World Supercross Championship (WSX) came to a spectacular end in Melbourne’s Marvel Stadium in Melbourne Australia last night with four world champions crowned.

German rider Ken Roczen is the new WSX champion after finishing second in a dramatic WSX Australian Grand Prix last night. The WSX title ends a championship drought for the Genuine Honda rider.

“I would do it over and over again, I’ve had such an amazing experience,” Roczen said. “It’s been a tough ride the last few years that’s why I did this. I don’t regret it. I’ve had so much fun here, I love coming to Australia and I can’t wait to come back again. Finally getting a title again, especially the first one for my team, is nothing short of amazing.”

Despite suffering a flat tire and a DNF in the second race, Ken Roczen still finished second overall for the round and garnered enough points to take the 2022 SX1 World Championship.

American Joey Savatgy won last night’s WSX race with Roczen second and American Justin Brayton in third. Roczen won two of the three races on offer but a flat tire, while leading the second, saw him DNF denying him a clean sweep of the night. Savatgy took the win in that moto.

In SX2 American Shane McElrath was crowned world champion after winning last night’s WSX Australian Grand Prix from Brit Max Anstie and Australian Aaron Tanti. Tanti thrilled the Australian crowd with an impressive win in the second GP moto.

The world championship is the first mayor title for McElrath, who rides for the Rick Ware Racing.

“A win is a win, it’s never easy,” McElrath said. “These guys made it tough. We had minimal prep time but Rick Ware Racing, we literally didn’t stop working. To come out on top, and to really get better every single time on the track, that’s really what we worked for. Praise God we’re here. Number one baby. I am proud of this team and what they’ve done in a few short weeks, glory to God.”

MotoConcepts won the Teams Champions and Honda took out the Manufacturer’s Championship after strong performances from its riders in Cardiff and Melbourne.

The pilot WSX season featured 10 international teams including NASCAR and IndyCar team owner, Rick Ware and two Australian teams – Honda Genuine and Craig Dack Racing.

More than 50,000 fans filled Marvel Stadium over two action packed nights for the WSX Australian Grand Prix and Australian Supercross Championship (AUSX).
