30 Greatest
AMA Motocrossers: #1 Ricky Carmichael

Advertisement | Advertise with Us

For as long as Ricky Carmichael raced professional motocross, he relied on a single measure of his success: the scoreboard. As we wrap up this 30-day countdown to the Hangtown Motocross Classic, we are pleased to announce that he’s the #1 athlete on our Monster Energy 30 Greatest AMA Motocrossers list. While no one is surprised by his presence at the top of the list, it is still remarkable to look back at the one measure that RC regarded as his legacy—that very same scoreboard.
