Greatest Dirtbike Riders

The Top Ten
1 Travis Pastrana

Pastrana can ride anything, anywhere, anytime. Motocross, supercross, freestyle, desert, flat track, enduro the man can do it all and do it the best. He could easily match Ricky Carmichael for speed on a supercross track and probably would have won more titles if he stayed healthy. The skills he has on any sort of dirtbike are unmatched. He is the modern day Malcolm Smith.

Awesome Dude, keep up the great job, I think that the tricks offered a dangerous adrenaline pump to everyone who is watchin you.

I love you you are so good and you should go back into motocross your are the best rider in the world.

Travis is a insane when it comes to tricks and stunts with his friends at Pastran land aka his house.

2 Ricky Carmichael

I'll never forget the day I became I Carmichael fan McGrath dissed me on a autograph that night Anaheim him and Carmichael raced side bye side McGrath won but I followed Carmichael ever since not only is this guy the G.O.A.T he is one of the nicest people you will ever meet I've met him about three times morning San Francisco race with my niece she asked him for his hat he said after race go to my trailer no joke that night we walk up to his trailer this guy walks through the crowd of fans we said nothing he walks up takes his hat off signs it places it on her head the guy is awesome Carmichael best ever

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.

Undisputed. You can run everything, but you need to be the best at one thing. This guy, on top of how humbke he is, is a sick and crazy rider.

3 Ryan Dungey

Very talented dungey grew up mere miles from my house/ different schools but married Lindsey in my brothers grade. He is quiet down to earth and very humble for his skill and achievements.

You're the best dirtbike rider I know and I did a research paper on u Dungey.

He was a good dirt bike rider now he is done sorry to break it to u this way...

He has done so many things now he doesn't any more shame

4 Ronnie Mac

I feel that the rest of the readers on this thread did not take a simple 69 seconds to read down the comments and vote the absolute best into first on this pole.

Uncle Ron for #1

Only man on the planet who can handle the screaming eagle

His style and persona make his riding fun to watch.

He is in the top 3 of my favorite bike riders

5 Ryan Villopoto

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!

Very quick rider, I believe every year he raced for monster energy kawasaki, he wouldve one a title, fastest rider in history I think.

Ryan villopoto thank you for switching to Yamaha and guess what my dad works for Yamaha

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

6 Chad Reed

Chad reed is the bomb at motocross and is the best in Australia

I love dirt bikes and chad reed chad Reid is the best in the world

I could only wish to be like Chad reed he's the best there is!

He is the best Australian rider ever.

7 James Stewart Jr. James Stewart (May 20, 1908 - July 2, 1997) was an American movie star, who is widely considered to be one of the greatest actors of all time. He is best remembered for his roles in Rear Window, It's a Wonderful Life, Vertigo, and Mr. Smith Goes to Washington. Stewart was known for his distinctive drawl more.

This guy tears it up! I can only imagine being even close to as good as him!

This guy is so fast on a 250 2 stroke. You name a track he will race it for sure.

He's the fastest most aggressive rider out there he's insane

Its would be awesome to actually go to his house

8 Jeremy McGrath

Best supercross rider ever...and at present, helping youngster with his team and DC

You are the best if they had best Supercross racers you would be number one

A true ambassador of the sport and skills most wish we had.

Jeremy is an awesome rider and he never gives up

9 Brian Deegan

My favorite rider in the world. I have always wanted to ride with him and his sons

Down for any trick, extremely competitive and a all around great rider

I love him he's so good he inspired me to ride and no I am and it awesome

The best. Love watching him and his kids on YouTube. Go subscribe

10 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!

Definitely the King of Hard Enduro. Unbelivable technical Skills. Has a 6 sense for finding the perfect way in hard enduro events.

Graham is the best rider in the world due to his excellent control in all situations

Truly skilled especially in the technical stuff and is gnarly bro.

The Contenders
11 Eli Tomac

Fast but not consistent brilliant and my favourite

Eli tomac is awesome he is the best a anything

Eli Tomac makes history in Supercross

Won 3 out doors and trains by him self

12 Malcolm Smith

Malcolm could do it all! Back in the day on those old bikes, motocross, enduro, desert, trials! Everything on a dirt bike, he was the best.

Best rider in the worlds history the man is a legend

Outclassed the field always with a smile

A true class act. Pride of the desert.

13 Toby Price

He's won the DAKAR twice.
DAKAR is known as the hardest bike race, even with a broken wrist.
If that's not good riding, I don't know what is!

Toby price is the best dirt bike rider in the world

No one can hold it wide open like this man

A true surviver and a true aussie

14 Ryan Dungy
15 Roger Decoster

De Coster is the absolute godfather of motocross.
A legend! Really stands in a class of his own.

He was the best. 5 championships All on Suzuki

He's the #1 classic. Without any question.

16 David Knight

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

The greatest of great in all disciplines

17 Ken Roczen

He's the best supercross rider in the world please put him up higher

He came back from 2 horrible crashes and he's doing good again

He's my favorite

is just the best

18 Mike Metzger

The god father of free-styling and riding!

Original Old School, a beast on a bike.

I'm better than all of you

19 Ashley Fiolek

Fantastic rider and inspirational person. All round cool chick

Do you realize that she is the only girl and she is still amazing!

Noo! Why did I vote for him

Because she is the best womans rider in the world, she has the number one plate and she has a hearing disadvantage so she should be on top she is so good at racing

20 Nate Adams
21 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

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!

King of motocross

22 Kurt Caselli

Amazing rider and a even better person.

Such an amazing rider and such an amazing person. We miss you KC!

Be remembered as a person not a racer!

Fastest desert racer ever!

23 Danny Laporte
24 Jeremy Steinberg

Twitch is the man that has pushed the envelope on how to treat fans and how to love the sport of riding.

Won way too many xgames medals and other awards not to be on this list

Worlds best rider no one better

25 Cyril Depres

This guy is amazing on any bike. Street/mx/ enduro you name he'll ride it..
