BREAKING: Colt Nichols and Beta part ways


Beta USA and Colt Nichols have mutually parted ways. Nichols was originally signed through the 2025 season however both parties agreed to go their separate ways. Beta USA will continue to field a two-rider Supercross team for the 2025 season and is currently seeking a replacement rider to join teammate Benny Bloss.

Nichols suffered a preseason shoulder injury that kept him out for the first half of the Monster Energy AMA Supercross Championship. The #45 eventually made seven starts aboard his Beta 450 RX, finishing with a season-best 11th at the season finale in Utah.

Carlen Gardner, Team Manager: “I appreciate Colt for the time he spent with the Beta USA team and we wish him all the best for his future”.

Tim Plig, Beta USA President: “When building a new team, success does not generally come overnight. There are highs and lows. Our team worked extremely hard with Colt however with him being injured, and then coming back mid-season, it was a tough uphill battle. We will continue to push non-stop to develop our team into something special. I wish Colt the best for the future,”
