With the demise of the stalwart GEICO Honda team at the end of the 2020 season it left a lot of top, young Honda talent without a home.

Honda HRC stepped up immediately for the Lawrence brothers, Hunter and Jett. Hunter had a mostly forgettable 2020 series due to shoulder injuries but Jett could just go out and win everything in 2021. He almost won his first 250SX Main Event in 2020 but pulled through to win the 250 MX finale at Fox Raceway outdoors.

They’re joining the team alongside their former GEICO Honda team-mate Chase Sexton who won the Fox Raceway season finale in 2020 in the 450cc class. Sexton will be making his 450 SX debut at round one.

And then there’s the team’s superstar, Ken Roczen. Roczen won four supercross Main Events in 2020 and he knows time is no longer on his side if he wants to win a supercross title. He will be 27 in 2021 and that is the oldest anybody has ever been when they won their first 450 supercross title – and it was Eli Tomac just last year.
