Team Tedder/Monster Energy/Lucas Oil/KTM has tapped Josh Hill to be a fill-in rider for the 2022 Monster Energy Supercross Championship as Benny Bloss, the team’s original hire for the upcoming season, is currently sidelined with multiple injuries. As a result, Hill will be aboard the KTM 450 SX-F through the first part of the season, beginning this weekend at the 2022 Anaheim One Supercross. 

Bloss suffered a broken collarbone and ankle in a recent practice crash at Fox Raceway. The fractures required corrective surgeries, which took place this past week, and he’s already begun therapy to expedite the recovery.

Although Hill is no longer a full-time racer, he’s stayed busy during the last few months through a testing role with the Stark VARG electric bike, gate drops at the recent Paris Supercross, and an upcoming Monster Energy project. “I got a call from my friend Dakota (Tedder, Team Manager) the day before Christmas that unfortunately Benny Bloss had gotten injured. So I will be filling in on Team Tedder until he is back to 100-percent,” Hill stated on Instagram. “With just over a week’s notice, it’s going to be tough to be up to pace. But I’m stoked to be back racing at Anaheim.”

Team Tedder/Monster Energy/Lucas Oil/KTM will have a presence in the 250 West Coast Region with Kaeden Amerine, a rookie in the small-bore class.

Hill raced two 450 Main Events in 2021 as a privateer; he finished sixteenth at the 2021 Atlanta Two Supercross and seventeenth at the 2021 Atlanta Three Supercross.
