Musquin, Vialle and Boisramé – .

Musquin is arguably having one of his worst seasons to date as he sits eighth out of 450 points in the class after round seven. While he had been a contender for motorcycle and overall wins as well as the premier class championship in AMA Supercross and motocross, Musquin has only recorded one top five overall this season, a fourth overall at the Washougal National at the end of July.
Vialle, the reigning MX2 champion, has not been so dominant in the championship this year as he was hampered by a hand injury from a training incident. He won the first round finishing 1-1, but then broke his hand in a frontal training accident with Roan Van De Moosdijk. The Red Bull KTM rider has yet to return to the overall podium since the first game and sits 11th in the standings in seven rounds, 138 points behind leaders Renaux, as his chances of repeating as the title favorite are thin. In his third full season of racing in the MX2 class, Boisrame currently sits seventh in the standings. He holds a podium overall for the season aboard his F&H Kawasaki KX250.

A few things to note about this selection: Paulin, a long-time MXoN veteran, has announced his retirement after the 2020 FIM Motocross World Championship. He has competed 11 times since his MXoN debut in 2009.

Dylan Ferrandis, who currently leads the Lucas Oil AMA Pro Motocross Championship 450 class, was not considered for this year’s roster as the Monster Energy / Star Yamaha Racing team relocates their store from California factory racing team in Tallahasee, Fla. for Ricky Carmichael’s Goat Farm. As Ferrandis is leading the current championship and is keen to compete in the 2022 Monster Energy AMA Supercross 450SX Championship, he will not participate. Note: Team Star’s move also has an impact on a runner like Justin Cooper, who raced for Team USA in 2019 but is not expected to race this year due to the relocation of the team in Florida.

And Febvre, who sits second in the MXGP standings in the first seven rounds, is reportedly out as he aims to compete for the title, according to MX Vice. Febvre is 13 points behind championship leader Tim Gajser with 11 more rounds to go in the season as the Kawasaki rider seeks his second MXGP title.
