Ricky Carmichael Motocrosser is said to be one of the greatest Motocross bikers of all time. In 1996 he earned himself the AMA Motocross Rookie of the Year title.
This was his initial taste of his professional motocross career and showed everyone the promise of upcoming greatness. In 1997 he certainly did not slow down, and earned a few wins in the Eastern Region 125 cc Supercross races with his Pro Circuit Kawasaki.
He also dominated the 125 cc National Motocross Championship Series and captured his first ever professional championship.
The following year he did not disappoint again. Winning every round of their 125 cc Eastern Region Supercross championships, he also scored 8 overall wins in the 125 cc Mazda Truck Motocross National championships. For the 1st time in his biking career Ricky Carmichael Motocrosser entered the AMA 250 cc Supercross Series in 1999.
However, he could not acclimate to this bigger bike and even tougher competition and went back to his 125 cc bike. He subsequently won his 3rd consecutive championship within this class at the AMA Motocross Nationals. This was to be his last championship for the team of Mitch Payton Pro Circuit Kawasaki.
For the entire 2000 season, Ricky rode a 250 cc bike. At Daytona he won his first 250 cc Supercross win, and scored an extra 5 podium finishes. He was a strong outdoor rider, and dominated at the AMA 250 cc US Supercross. He won nine overalls and the series championships.
Alongside teammates Travis Pastrana and Ryan Hughes, he secured the title of team Motocross des Nations for the US. In 2001, he dethroned Jeremy McGrath for the AMA 250 cc Supercross Champion title with his Team Chevy Trucks Kawasaki.

He proceeded to set his record that will not be broken within the AMA 250 cc National Motocross, winning every moto that he entered in that season. This earned him the 1st perfect season within US motocross history.
In 2003 he won the AMA National Motocross championships and the AMA Supercross championships once again. In 2004 in his last season on his Factory American Honda Ricky once again won all twenty four motos of that season on a 4- stroke CRF450R in place of the 2-stroke CR250R from two years back.
