2017 Season Recap:

Hampshire entered his third full season of supercross competition in 2017 and was expected to be a consistent podium threat with a 4th place finish at round 1 in Minneapolis. The Florida native earned points at two more rounds before fracturing his leg in a crash at round 3 in Toronto. Hampshire went on to finish 14th and finished 19th overall. With each passing season, Hampshire’s comfort on the bike becomes more and more apparent, and it’s only a matter of time before he claims his first career win.
