2 Ricky Carmichael

The thing about pastrana being full of himself is not true I've met him

The goat

Carmichael is the GOAT! He will never be beat. No matter what! Carmichael, Tomac, and Roczen are my 3 favorite!

P.S. subscribe to Nuculear T.V. on YouTube!

Ricky was faster than James Both guys were class acts. Just go to the video. James was miss treated by FIM. AMA needs to cut that relationship. Also Mr Tickel. Whats up playing with people's lifes like That.

10 Ryan Villopoto

Fastest supercross rider ever if he had kept racing he would hold all the records

Dude dominated the Motocross Des Nations, twice from what I heard, and he tried out the MXGP circuit.

Was best rider ever in super cross, my favorite for sure...2 posters on my wall!

I don't think he ever lost a championship that he competed in for a full season without injury. Plus I have to vote for a NW native and Josh Hill wasn't a choice... LOL JK!

The Contenders

11 Nate Adams
12 David Knight

The best, at his age he is still so committed and gets results.

The greatest of great in all disciplines

13 Graham Jarvis

Just a machine with skills far succeeding any other dirt bike rider and should be at number one as he doesn't ride for the money he rides to out do his previous extreme motorbike achievements which in turn improves the benchmark to his rivals and makes HARD even harder!

Not the fastest, but Mad Skills!


This guy sucks

23 Stefen Everts

Beat Bubba at age 34! If Everts would have raced Bubba and Carmichael at age 25 over a full season I think he could of definitely beat Bubba and I think he could of challenged Carmichael

King of motocross

First off, it's Stefan Everts. Not Stefen.
Second, and more importantly, how is he not top 10? If not top 3? He holds the record with 10 World Titles!
