The 2018 “Silly Season” has been a very uneventful one compared to the past with most of the top-tier riders locked in for 2018, but there are quite a few second and third tier riders making some big moves. The game of offseason musical chairs is coming to a close soon and with teams like RCH / Suzuki closing their doors, the lack of 450 rides will leave some on the outside looking in when the music stops and the lights come on at Anaheim 1 in January.

Biggest names without a home yet

#7 James Stewart – It is as quiet as it has ever been

#22 Chad Reed – We are currently hearing that Chad will possibly end up at A1 one on his own deal riding a Husqvarana. Follow @CRTwoTwo on Instagram if you are into decoding messages.

#27 Malcolm Stewart – No word at all on where the new permanent #27 (250SX Champions now get permanent numbers) will end up.

#51 Justin Barcia – Justin and Reedy both were on the short list for the Red Bull / KTM vacancy, but that went to Tickle. Justin raced a privateer Honda at MEC and beyond that, we are in the dark.
