This season carries no shortage of talent; returning to the track is Jeffrey Herlings (Red Bull KTM Factory Racing), who carries five World Titles and is gunning to be the first racer ever to hold six.
Naturally, 2022’s champion is back…ish. Tim Gajser (Team HRC) had previously broken his right femur in a nasty land and anticipates a return as soon as the surgery/recovery phase allows a green light from his doctors (via Vurbmoto).
Until then, HRC’s Ruben Fernandez will be representing with a previous 2 podiums and 8th place overall for 2022.
2023’s FIM Motocross World Championship promises to be an intense show; who are you cheering for?
