It was inevitable, and the downward spiral of our economy is finally making some big waves in our industry as it was announced this week that American Suzuki will no longer be supporting amateur motocross. That’s like Chevrolet pulling out of NASCAR, or Adidas not supporting football. But I digress….
From their decade-long run of hosting the annual Suzuki RM Cup Challenge contingency race to their unmatched amateur contingency program and rider support, Suzuki set the standard for amateur motocross support in America, and this is a sad day for American motocross.
So for today’s installment of Motosport Outlet Bench Racing Ammo, we’ve decided to compile a list of some of the top amateur motocross racers of all time to have come through the Suzuki support program throughout the last decade and beyond. If you have any to add to the list, feel free to comment below. Please note, these are not in any specific order. Make sure to check out the photos in the gallery to the right.
