In the world of Supercross, where more than 90 percent of riders have been injured in some way, protection gear is of extreme importance. Recently crowned the 2023 AMA Supercross Champ Chase Sexton has suffered a broken collarbone, concussions, broken teeth, and many other injuries that would make the normal human question why one would continue to get back on the bike.
It’s as simple as having a love for the sport, a passion for competition, and an enjoyment for winning. This fall, Sexton will be squaring off in a three-round hybrid SuperMotocross World Championship playoff and final, starting Sept. 9, for a chance at $5.5 million.
The Illinois native walked M&F through some of the usual items that accompany him during testing and racing.
