American Josh Hill will reunite with Craig Dack Racing (CDR) for the upcoming World Supercross Championship (WSX), completing the four-rider roster alongside countryman Kyle Chisholm, as well as CDR Yamaha team regulars Luke Clout and Aaron Tanti.

Hill, 33, rode with CDR in the Australian championship during 2019 and will return for the WSX pilot season that’s due to commence with the British Grand Prix at Principality Stadium in Cardiff, Wales, on 8 October.

“Competing for Craig Dack Racing on a global stage in the FIM-sanctioned World Supercross Championship was a historic opportunity to compelling to pass up,” said Hill. “Craig and the CDR team are going to put all four of us in a great position to compete for podiums every time out. We are going up against the best riders from around the world, so I am really looking forward to the challenge.”

CDR team owner Craig Dack commented: “Josh brings valuable experience and an engaging personality to the team. We expect him to be in the hunt for podium performances pretty consistently. He’s a great addition to the team.”

It’s expected that Hill – who has a single AMA Supercross victory to his credit from 2008 in Minneapolis – will ride the premier WSX (450) category alongside Clout, which in turn would place Tanti and Chisholm in the SX2 (250) class for the season ahead.
