Australian sports and entertainment company SX Global has announced that Ken Roczen has officially committed to compete in the 2022 FIM World Supercross Championship (WSX) that will begin in early October. It’s currently unclear what team the two-time Lucas Oil AMA Pro Motocross 450MX Class champion will race for, as the Team Honda HRC organization hasn’t committed to racing WSX, but we expect those details to be confirmed in the near future.
“The WSX is a unique opportunity to compete on a truly global scale, and I’m thrilled to be a part of that,” Roczen said. “I haven’t raced overseas in a very long time so I’m looking forward to bringing supercross to die-hard fans at these international events in 2022, all while competing for an FIM-sanctioned world title. I’m thrilled for what will no doubt be an unbelievable experience and a fantastic springboard for a full assault on my 2023 supercross and motocross championship goals.”
The 2022 WSX schedule has not been announced yet, but the series will take place in the second half of the year, including up to four events from late September through November. According to SX Global, the FIM World Supercross Championship will expand annually between June and November, with up to 12 events in 2023 and beyond.
