Colt Nichols joined the Star Racing Yamaha Team in 2016 as one of the most promising prospects in the lites class. He was an early favorite but has been plagued by injuries since the start of the Supercross season. Nichols has recovered from two separate injuries and has shown fans what he can do on a dirt bike. If he can stay healthy, the #39 will be a title contender for years to come.
