BREAKING NEWS! JOSH HILL TO LINE UP FOR 2022 ANAHEIM 1 SUPERCROSS

Josh Hill got a fill-in ride with Team Tedder KTM after their rider Benny Bloss suffered a broken ankle and collarbone. Benny hopes to be back racing around midway through the season. Josh raced the 250 East division in 2020 for the ClubMX Yamaha team and he raced the Atlanta Supercross rounds in 2021 aboard a Monster Motorsports backed Yamaha YZ450F. Josh has been seen riding the Stark Varg electric bike lately, but we didn’t expect him to be racing Anaheim 1. Josh will also be lining up against his younger brother, Justin Hill, who has recently came out of retirement to race for the PRMX Kawasaki team. Click here for our interview with Justin Hill about his decision to return to racing.

Why would Team Tedder pick a rider who hasn’t been training full-time to race Supercross? Three reasons: (1) Talent. Josh Hill has the ability to go really fast, even off the couch. (2) Publicity. Josh Hill is more popular than most available privateer riders. (3) Sponsors. Josh Hill has a close relationship with Monster Energy and they are the title sponsor of Team Tedder.
