The 2014 Monster Energy season is just days away, and it’s time to take a look at the riders who will be fighting for the FIM World Championship beginning in this Saturday night.

With reigning triple champion gunning for his fourth consecutive title, the task will be tough for every competitor to end his reign of dominance. However, with the most talented field in history set to line up on the gate this weekend, there is a large contingent of competitors looking to make their presence felt throughout the 17-race season.

The favorites to unseat Villopoto are three of the most successful riders in series history. Each has at least one supercross title to his credit and has achieved so much success that anything but a spot on the podium could be considered a disappointment. These riders are accustomed to winning and are in turn the most likely to make Villopoto’s path to another title a difficult one.

Chad Reed
What’s old is new again for Reed in 2014. In 2010, Reed lined up alongside Villopoto at Monster Energy Kawasaki to establish one of the most formidable teams in history. Unfortunately, Reed’s season ended before it ever really began following a second round crash with Stewart that resulted in a broken hand. Once he returned, Reed finished up front but never secured a victory and never appeared to be fully comfortable on the Kawasaki.
