Colt Nichols will ride for Honda HRC in the 450 Supercross Class for 2023. Nichols joins Chase Sexton along with the Lawrence Brothers. Nichols earned four 250SX victories along with the 2021 East Regional Title. The deal moves Nichols up to the premier class aboard a Honda CRF450WE.
“First and foremost, I’m just thankful and blessed for this opportunity to come about,” Nichols said. “It seemed like a longshot at first, and now for it to actually be real, I couldn’t be happier to be joining such a prestigious team and be on a factory Honda. I’ve always wanted to ride for this team, and they carry a very large and awesome legacy. I hope I can contribute to that, get some good results and help the team in any way I can. Moving to the 450 class and racing the best guys in the world will be fun and very challenging, but I’ve got a great teammate to learn from. I’m really excited to get to work and get this thing going, “ said Nichols.
