 2020 Season Recap

Expectations were high for Colt Nichols heading into 2020 after an impressive 2019 found him ending the season in a career-best third place. Unfortunately, Nichols suffered a shoulder injury just before the 2020 season began and he was unable to compete in the first 4 rounds. When Nichols returned for Round 5 in Salt Lake City it was clear that he hadn’t missed a beat. Nichols registered three podium finishes in a short five-race season with his best finish being second place in round 6. This late-season surge left Nichols 11th in the season-ending standings. 

 2021 Outlook

Nichols returns for his fifth season with the Monster Energy/Star Racing/ Yamaha team. After sitting out the 2020 outdoor season due to a hand injury suffered at the end of his Supercross season, Nichols is finally feeling healthy and ready to race. He will certainly be on the hunt for a championship crown if he can string together a healthy season in 2021.
