 2020 Season Recap

Jason Anderson put together a very solid 2020 campaign after his 2019 title defense ended early due to injury. Anderson was able to put together 5 podium finishes and coast to a commanding fourth place finish in the season ending standings. 

 2021 Outlook

Anderson underwent surgery this past September to remove a plate from his arm that was causing him discomfort. This cut Anderson’s outdoor Motocross season short, but he will be healthy and ready to race come January in Houston. Anderson made some major coaching decisions shortly after the conclusion of the 2020 Supercross season by deciding to part ways with legendary coach, Aldon Baker. It is still unknown who Anderson will be training with moving forward but it will surely make for some well anticipated racing. After ending 2020 Supercross with a season best finish 2nd place, he will look to carry that momentum into 2021 and contend for another 450SX title.
