2018 SAN DIEGO SUPERCROSS | COMPLETE COVERAGE

PHOTOS | Octopi Media

Just how dominant are your favorite brands in professional motocross? Companies spend thousands, sometimes millions, on endorsement contracts with racers at the top levels of the sport in hopes that their fanbase will purchase their brand of motorcycle or apparel. With this in mind, we went through the results of both main events at the 2018 San Diego Supercross, listed the bikes and gear used by all forty-four racers in the field, and tallied up the totals, and listed it below. Considering the popularity of some brands, you might be surprised at how many riders in the field actually use their products compared to others.

Since this is going to be a semi-regular feature, we decided to toss in some special variable figures into the totals. For this post, we focused on the suspension, exhaust systems, and handlebars used by riders. It seems like the popularity of suspension brands goes up and down depending on the year, so we wanted to know what most racers have on their bikes. Exhausts and handlebars are often the first things that riders put on their bikes, so we wanted to see if the perceived popularity of certain brands is reflected on the track.
