Craig Dack Racing (CDR) is the longest tenured and most successful team in Australian motocross and supercross history. CDR is excited to announce Josh Hill as the team’s fourth rider competing in the FIM World Supercross Championship’s 2022 season. Hill joins Australia’s Luke Clout (450cc) and Australian Aaron Tanti (250cc), along with fellow American Kyle Chisholm on the CDR Team.
“Competing for Craig Dack Racing on a global stage in the FIM-sanctioned World Supercross Championship was a historic opportunity to compelling to pass up,” said Hill. “The CDR team is going to put all four competitors in a great position to compete for podiums every time. We are going up against the best riders from around the world, so I am really looking forward to the challenge.”
Hill, 33, from Yoncalla, Oregon, turned pro in 2006 and has one career AMA Supercross win and 11 podiums in the premier class. He stepped away from full-time supercross racing due to injury in 2015 but has become a fixture in the freeriding scene while continuing to race supercross intermittently over the past several years.
“Josh brings valuable experience and an engaging personality to the team,” said Craig Dack, team owner of CDR. “We expect him to be in the hunt for podium performances pretty consistently. He’s a great addition to the team.”
“SX Global is incredibly excited to see Josh Hill added to our already extensive line-up of incredible international racers. Josh is arguably one of the most talented athletes on two wheels. He has a global following that spans multiple genres across the motocross, supercross and even his unique brand of freeriding content. We know fans around the world are going excited to see how he performs on the racetrack!” said Adam Bailey, managing director – motorsport for SX Global.
