Benny Bloss #60– Rider Bio and Stats
With a new number, Benny Bloss re-joins the Team RMATV/MC-KTM-WPS for the 2018 racing season, competing in the 450 class. After coming back during the middle of the Outdoor season after an injury forced him to sit out the supercross season, Benny is ready to battle for podium finishes in the premier 450 class.
Known as one of the top prospects to come out of the amateurs in the last few years. In his time on the bike, Benny has earned the 2015 AMA Horizon Award, the 2016 Pro Motocross Rookie of the Year Award and a handful of competitive finishes that have been nothing short of impressive and exciting.
Benny has worked with a few teams in the past by filling in for riders, moving up in class and producing solid results that speak to his potential. In the 2016 season, he filled in for an injured Millsaps and Short for the last three rounds of supercross, where he worked his way into the main event for the last two rounds. Afterwards, he went on to take 9th place at the Monster Energy Cup, coming in ahead of some seasoned riders. That hard work and performance have turned into a full-time ride for 2017 with the team.
