Bench Racing Ammo: RC's Losses

August 9, 2007 2:01pm

As much of the focus of this weekend’s national will be on Ricky Carmichael breaking the 150-win mark in outdoor motocross, we’ve decided to look back at his career and highlight all of his losses. Throughout his astonishing career, Ricky Carmichael has only lost a total of 25 AMA Nationals, and below is a list of the winner of each of those races. If you’re name is on this list, congratulations, because for one day you were able to top the Greatest of All-Time.

Add that up and you will find 13 different riders that were able to stop The GOAT during his 12-year outdoor career. Look closer and you’ll see that only Kevin Windham and David Vuillemin were able to do it consecutively. Now, that’s something to tell the grandkids about.
