2013 RCH Racing Suzuki RM-Z450

From the 1996 through 2007  AMA Supercross and Motocross seasons, Ricky Carmichael was unstoppable.

Between his 1996 rookie year, in which he won the Rookie of the Year Award, to his last year in 2007, Carmichael achieved 15 AMA titles, including 10 in Motocross in five in Supercross. He still holds the record of most Motocross wins with 102, and has two perfect Motocross seasons.

So what does a rider with such stature do when the racing stops? Help own a team, such as the RCH Racing Suzuki Team in the AMA Motocross/Supercross series.

As co-owner of RCH Racing Suzuki, Carmichael still gets to do some riding. In the episode attached above from the “Network A” Channel, Carmichael joins RCH team rider Broc Tickle and techs at Glen Helen Raceway in California. Using the latest in computer technology, the two finely tune the RM-Z 450 for optimal results while on the racetrack.
