Greatest Motocross Riders

The Contenders: Page 2

21 Adam Cianciarulo

He is an amazing rider he is my idol thanks for getting me into the sport

Adam cianciarulo is a awesome rider

Adam is a good rider

Best rider in supermini

22 Donny Schmit

Yes, I was at a practice track one afternoon with different riders going over a particular section and he also would take it repeatedly, effortlesly crazy fast. Made me ( and everyone else ) look like a total squid...impressive!

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!

23 Danny Laporte

250cc World Champion, what else needs to be said!

24 Doug Henry

He was and still is a great rider I've been to his house at his track it it was said to see him get paralyzed on that bike that day I'm glad to have called him a friend

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...

One of a kind, a humble fighter!

25 David Bailey David Bailey

The smoothest and best style on the bike

Best rider of all time.

You idiots have David Bailey listed this low?
He should be listed no lower than #3.

26 Malcolm Stewart

He is a great rider!

27 Joël Smets
28 Darryll King
29 Eli Tomac

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!

Eli is the worst rider ever and he should quit right now. Ryan dungy is the goat.

Eli will go down in history as the best super cross rider ever

Eli is and will be the best rider ever

If you don't no

31 Shayne King

My dad stayed with him in a flat and he offered to sell him a helmet but he could not offered it and the next year he won 250cc world champion ship

32 Jeff Emig

jeff emig is so fast in supercross and motocross - shelzza

Best rider I've seen Nick Mihalich

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.

33 Kevin Wyndham

By far the most naturally smoothest and talented rider ever!

One of the most consistent riders of all time.

34 Blake Baggett

Blake Bagget is a very talented rider and has amazing skills

Great rider watched him at thinder vally and he killed it!

35 Brad Lackey

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

36 Broc Glover

Ryan dungey reminds me of my idol broc glover. Fast, smooth, consistent and always up front, truely underrated rider 6 national championships and of course he was robbed in 85 for supercross championship. ward rode backwards on track thesame infraction he got hit for earlier in that year. I was bummed true great

37 Mike LaRocco

Best Longest Jump Ever and also a Champion and in the Early 90's more 20 riders can compete...

2 dozen riders ranked above who have never beat Mike

Just an out right hero and character

Beast. Had he been a better starter or the motos lasted 10 mins longer he would have won em all.

38 Trey Canard

Overcame more diversity than anyone and still wins races Got my respect.

He overcame the worst injuries and fought back to still win races!

Who is this?
#deez nuts

39 Guy Cooper

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.

Killer on a 125

40 Malcolm Smith

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".
