Doug was both the hardest working and nicest guy in motocross. Doug basically gave away several championships by agreeing to pioneer the four stroke Yamahas during his prime. You couldn't have asked for a better competitor or a racer with a better attitude. The way he came back from several devastating injuries to compete for national titles was unprecedented. His victory in his first ever GNCC is still the talk of legend.

By far the nicest and in my opinion what he did after his back injury, is the best motocross rider there is again that is my opinion...

If Donny were still around I'm sure he would be riding with the best of them, god rest his soul he was my inspiration, growing up in district 23 in mn, we called himpeanut, and this guy kicked ASS!

25David Bailey

The smoothest and best style on the bike

Best rider of all time.

If MC wasn't around, Fro would be at or near the very top. As is, he should be top ten anyway, for his mx skills alone.

Do your history this man could change a tire in 5 min during a race

My 1st motorcycle hero! Won the Baja 1000 six times, Baja 400 four times, the Mint 400 twice, the roof of Africa rally twice and also took 1st in the Atlas rally in Morocco. Not to mention 8 gold medals within 10 years (1966-1976) at the invitation only International Six Day Trial. A featured rider in the cult classic "On Any Sunday".

I had one of his old track bikes growing up. I thought he was the man.

Never say die aptitude, loved styling it over the jumps.

38Jean-Michel Bayle

Indoor or out, it didn't matter. He rode smoothly, fast and had a fantastic riding style. A great shame he turned to road racing.

Remember watching bayle as a kid he was the best he made it look so easy all time great in my eyes

Beat Evert Stanton Mc Grath, clean style on the bike, won world titles as well as US titles! Who else did that?

Tomac's gonna take everyone by surprise, if he hadn't crashed in 2015 AMA outdoor motocross, he definitely would have been running for the title!

Bad Brad brought America it's first World Championship and a lot of self sacrifice and self-denial went into achieving that Championship. I would love to see today's generation of riders do what these guys did with minimal support and bikes and equipment far below what is normal for today.

And with Jim Pomeroy before before them the top American rider was trying to not get laped
