Jett Lawrence: The Rookie Sensation

Jett Lawrence, a rookie in the 2024 MXGP World Championship, is getting a lot of attention. Even though he is still new to this sport, Lawrence has gained fame by performing excellently on the 450 while also going unbeaten outdoors in the United States.

The way Lawrence rides reminds people of the greats like: Stefan Everts, Ricky Carmichael and Jeremy McGrath. His technical excellence coupled with his calm decision-making and measured approach makes him a formidable contender. Lawrence has sky high confidence and aims at surpassing Jeremy McGrath’s record of 72 victories, but can he be equal to the hype?

Eli Tomac: The Revenge Seeker

Eli Tomac is also another noteworthy rider to watch out for in the 2024 MXGP World Championship. He had a very good opportunity of winning the 2022 championship before his Achilles tendon was injured. Now with vengeance as his motivation, he goes into the 2024 season with both experience and a desire to win at all costs.

Chase Sexton and Cooper Webb: The Title Defenders

Let’s not forget, Chase Sexton and Cooper Webb who are both defending champions. Sexton whose 2022 Supercross title was overshadowed by Tomac’s injury and Lawrence’s dominance will be focused on proving himself on the KTM team but is he equal to the task of adapting to a new bike and defending his championship? On the other hand, Webb disappointed with his previous bike is now riding the same motorcycle as Tomac, has he run out of excuses?

Ken Roczen and Jason Anderson: The Consistent Contenders

We can also add Ken Roczen and Jason Anderson to the list of top contenders. Last year, Roczen’s speed amazed everyone and his possession of the WSX title means that he is going to be a regular competitor for both wins and podium finishes. If Anderson comes back to his 2021 form or avoids the on-track disagreements that have plagued his career he could also be pushing for the title

Dylan Ferrandis and Adam Cianciarulo: The Speedsters with Question Marks

The 2024 season also might see Dylan Ferrandis and Adam Cianciarulo as two riders pushing for podium finishes. For the Phoenix Honda rider Ferrandis, he seems to be satisfied with his bike and might be able to show his indoor speed at the 450 class provided he has a strong start. Yet, could the problem with Cianciarulo’s wrist overshadow an otherwise promising season?
