Words | Press release

Making his debut pro appearance this Saturday at the Budds Creek National, Cochran will race the Ironman MX finale before switching gears back to the SMX World All-Stars (amateur race) at the Los Angeles Coliseum.

The highly-rated 17-year-old is fresh from a title-winning performance in the 2023 AMA Amateur National Motocross Championship at Loretta Lynn’s earlier this month, where he claimed victory in the Schoolboy 2 (12-17) B/C class and also won the opening 250 B moto equipped with the FC 250.

“I’ve had a pretty good year on the 250, so I’m stoked to get the opportunity to line up against the best in the business at the last two rounds of Pro Motocross,” Cochran said, who will also contest the final round at Ironman Raceway on August 26.

Cochran joined Rockstar Energy Husqvarna’s amateur program ahead of this season and clinched the Supercross Futures AMA National Championship with a Main Event win at Salt Lake City’s final round in May. He also won the Moto Combine overall at RedBud in July and his first step into the professional ranks comes as a welcome opportunity following what has been an outstanding year to-date
