About Ricky Carmichael University
Ricky Carmichael University began in 2010 as a once in a lifetime opportunity for riders of all ages and skill levels to learn from The-Greatest-of-All-Time, Ricky Carmichael, in conjunction with the Ricky Carmichael Amateur Supercross at Daytona International Speedway. Due to the expansion of racing in 2012, Daytona was no longer able to facilitate RCU, thus expanding this exclusive riding school to Lake Elsinore in California and for the first time ever, Fat Cat Moto Parc in Doncaster, UK.
