COLT NICHOLS INTERVIEW: HIS NEW YEAR, NEW HRC HONDA & NEW O’NEAL GEAR
Colt Nichols was the surprise replacement for Ken Roczen at HRC Honda for the 2023 season. Colt was no less than brilliant during his 250 East/West years, but suffered year-ending injuries early in his 250 West title defense last year. Forced to move to the 450 class, Colt couldn’t have been in a better place to get the chance of a lifetime for his rookie 450 season.
And, the other surprise is that Colt will replace Dean Wilson on the O’Neal Racing program—where he will join KTM’s Marvin Musquin as their headliners. All healed, with a new bike and a new clothing deal Colt is ready for the challenge in the premier class.
