When it comes to off-road racing, it does not get much better than the AMA Supercross Championship, so for 2021, we are pumped to introduce our first big move across the pond with our new team – Muc-Off Honda.
Supercross takes the traditional customs of motocross and amplifies it. We’re talking harder turns, tricky bumps, deeper dirt and bigger jumps – average riders would find it near impossible to even complete a lap on an SX track, let alone race at speeds of up to 60mph. It’s a combination of power, skill, nerve and determination – and we cannot wait.
Heading up the team is four-time Australian Supercross Champion Justin Brayton, returning for his 18th year as a professional racer he will be competing in the 450SX class on his CRF 450R. Brayton will be joined by Mitchell Oldenburg, who previously rode for the team in 2019. Oldenburg will be competing in the 250SX class on the east coast, and rookie Mitchell Harrison will join the team in round eight for the 250SX class on the west coast.
Year turned AMA Pro: 2004
Class and Bike: 450SX // CRF450R
Back in 2018, Brayton became the oldest Main Event winner in history at 34 years old, and it looks like there’s nothing stopping him yet. With a track record as impressive as his, he’s bringing experience and consistency to the table this year – but will he beat his record to the oldest winner in history again? We hope so.
Year turned AMA Pro: 2013
Class and Bike: 250 West // CRF250
Born and raised in Texas, Mitchell Oldenburg returns to the Honda team this year after a devastating knee injury that cut his 2020 season even shorter. After re-joining the team in November, he’s been training full time to try and push for his first-ever career race win!
Year turned AMA Pro: 2016
Class and Bike: 250 East // CRF250
The youngest and freshest face in the team this year is Michigan boy Mitchell Harrison. After taking a season off to compete in European MX, he’s back on the Supercross Circuit and ready to fly – determined that although it’s fun to go out and race “the goal for me is to win, no matter what I’m on”. We can’t wait to see what he’s capable of.
