Longtime Honda rider to switch machinery for the first time in pro ranks.
In the latest revelation of rider transfers, Carson Mumford has confirmed his move to the BarX Chaparral Suzuki team for 2022 following the closure of Chaparral FXR Honda.
Mumford, a longtime Honda amateur rider, will make the switch to an RM-Z250 following a two-year pro stint on CRF250R machinery.
This year saw the 19-year-old complete the Lucas Oils Pro Motocross Championship 13th in the 250MX point standings, his best overall result coming at Ironman with P8 courtesy of two eighth-place finishes.
Mumford also competed in Monster Energy AMA Supercross 250SX West this season, achieving a best result of 12th at Arlington 3 in Texas.
Prior to 2021, the Californian represented the Geico Honda outfit in 2020 before the factory-supported team closed at the end of that season.
Next year marks the first time Mumford will ride a different brand of bike in the pro ranks. With the fresh surrounds, he will look to progress forward in both championships.
