The riders dropped were Pete Farley, Dusty Ephrom, Brian Herman, Dusty Labeth, and Nick Landreneau. Herman and Labeth get one more event due to an injury exemption.
The riders who will get promoted for the next five events are Elliott Jacoby, Cody Nance, Caleb Sanderson, Reese Cates. Also, Pete Farley gets to stay on the BFTS because of his Challenger Tour performance this season.
Basically, we have seen all these guys already as alternates. It will be interesting to see if Jacoby can get things going pretty soon. I've seen him ride in the CBR, and the guy is super talented. If he gets a few knocked out, watch out for him!
