Raymond Bonnett of West Chester, PA, is a business graduate student, loving father, and an avid motocross fan. The latter is something Raymond Bonnett has spent years watching and researching, making him very knowledgeable on the subject.
In all of his years of living in West Chester, PA, Raymond Bonnett has seen many great motocross riders make their way through the sport. And while it’s hard for him to rank one legendary rider over another, he does believe there is a select group that stands out above the rest.
So without further ado, here are the greatest motocross riders of all time according to Raymond Bonnett.
Ricky Carmichael: Many consider Carmichael to be the greatest rider ever. He was rarely beat straight up and some of the maneuvers he would pull over the edge without crashing were just incredible. With 48 career wins, the guy is truly a motocross legend.
Jeremy McGrath: Jeremy McGrath has 72 wins to his name and is considered to be perhaps the greatest champion in the history of motocross. “The King,” as some call him, dominated the 1990s with seven 250cc titles. But even after coming out of retirement in his 30s, he was able to hang with some of the very best in the sport.
James ‘Bubba’ Stewart: With 50 career victories, James ‘Bubba’ Stewart is one of the most entertaining motocross riders to watch today. He is the leader in wins for active riders and claimed AMA SX titles in 2007 and 2009.
Ryan Dungey: Recent Supercross champion Ryan Dungey has already cemented his place in the history books by racking up 33 wins before his abrupt retirement at the age of 27. The Minnesota native was able to compile 20 wins and 25 podiums in just a few seasons riding in AMA Supercross.
Ricky Johnson: Ricky Johnson’s 1987 win in LA is considered one of the best races of all time. His 28 wins make him a legend and his head-to-head battles with David Bailey are something motocross fans will never forget.
Bob ‘Hurricane’ Hannah: Motocross is a sport of many great nicknames, but few are as fitting as Bob ‘Hurricane’ Hannah, whose power and recklessness helped him amass 27 wins and become a legend of the sport. The California native famous for his yellow Yamaha is also known for his epic battles with one of his teammates, Broc Glover, who is also considered to be one of the best motocross riders of all time.
