WSX Rumours – Roczen and Webb in?

As the series gets closer, more big names are being linked but not confirmed to be racing the full 2023 WSX series even if it clashes with outdoors.

After initially being rumoured to race outdoors, Steve Matthes thinks Roczen could end up going WSX, which would give HEP Suzuki the defending champ of the series, a huge coup for the series and the team.

With no ride for outdoors, Colt Nichols is also being linked after racing a factory Honda in the premier series in America. Nichols was down to ride WSX last year but pulled out when he got the Honda ride.

Mike Alessi is being linked to return to the MCR Honda team and the wildest name starting to pop up as a possibility is Cooper Webb! Webb’s contract with KTM ends this year but he was initially supposed to race outdoors, however after the end to his supercross season, will he be ready to race in a month?
