Chase Sexton – time to deliver
Chase Sexton is coming off a superb outdoor season and a MXoN win in 2022. Now, with expectations raised, Sexton is coming into 2023 as a title contender despite having only won one supercross in 2022.
“I think it’s definitely a position I’ve wanted to be in since I got on a 450 (title contender), said Sexton in the press conference. “Winning only one race last year wasn’t enough for me I guess to be a contender and I had some mistakes but outdoors I really learned a lot about myself and how I can deal with things. Racing Eli, it really taught me something I could have never been taught otherwise, so looking forward to bringing that into supercross.
“Everyone is fired up, you can definitely feel everyone is ready to go, it’s exciting and I’m stoked everyone is healthy. But for me, being in this position, it really is refreshing and looking forward to going out there and taking what I have done this whole off-season and everything I have done last year and putting it into a solid supercross season. I feel comfortable. The bike is a lot different, it’s not the same bike I rode last year in supercross.
Sexton also said he is using the BFR shock in supercross that he used in outdoors last year giving more credence to fact that Chase is now as comfortable indoors as he is outdoors. If he can stay away from the mistakes and crashes, there is no reason he can’t take this championship to wire against Tomac, Anderson, Webb and the rest…
