 2020 Season Recap

Pierce Brown put together a well-respected rookie 250SX Supercross season considering the cards he was dealt. Brown took ninth in the season-ending standings after only competing in seven of nine races as a broken wrist kept him off the bike the first two weeks of the season. Brown registered three top-five finishes with two fourth-place finishes in Salt Lake City 3 and 6. Once he was healthy, Brown was on a mission to compete with the best and showed he can do just that despite the adversity.

 2021 Outlook

Brown is heading into 2021 with a new look as he joins the Troy Lee Designs/Red Bull/GasGas Factory Racing team. There will be a small group aboard the GasGas bike as Brown is joined by 450SX front runner, Justin Barcia, and 250SX teammate Michael Mosiman. It will be interesting to see how Brown reacts to the new training environment and team atmosphere, but if all goes according to plan and Brown can stay healthy, he will pose as a serious threat heading into a new season of racing.
