As MX Vice first hinted three weeks ago Ricky Carmichael is definitely coming to ride in the UK!! British World champion Jamie Dobb, who will play his part in the in the Ricky Carmichael University when it hits our shores and has been instrumental in making it happen, so far play to him for that. Anyway, enough chat. Check out this tidy video edit from E-Dub media and if that ain’t enough for you and you want more info the official press release below will tell all you need to know. RC at FatCat eh? And we thought we’d never see anyone better than the FatCat owner – Martin Craven ride around there!! 🙂
After much anticipation, MX Sports and Ricky Carmichael are thrilled to announce the 2012 return of the highly regarded Ricky Carmichael University (RCU), now expanding to the west coast and for the first time ever, hitting European dirt for an exclusive stop in the UK.
“Due to the success of the amateur supercross, we were forced to expand RCAMSX to two days and unfortunately we weren’t able to hold RCU in Daytona anymore,” said Carmichael. “But we’re excited to be able to give students on the west coast and around the world the opportunity to take part in RCU. It’s amazing to see this turn into an international event!”
Europe’s inaugural RCU event will take place at Fat Cat Moto Parc in Doncaster, UK on Monday, June 18 and Tuesday, June 19, where students have the opportunity to learn from 15-Time Champion Ricky Carmichael. The crew will head to Lake Elsinore on Monday, September 10, following the final round of the Lucas Oil AMA Pro Motocross Championship.
Former champions Jeff Emig and Jeff Stanton, as well as Ricky’s mother and lifetime trainer, Mrs. Jeannie Carmichael, will join Carmichael in teaching this once in a lifetime riding school. The knowledgeable and experienced panel of instructors will teach students everything from proper body positioning, to utilizing organized drills focusing on flat turns, rhythm sections and improved braking techniques.
RCU is an exclusive and unprecedented opportunity for motocross riders, young and old, to get personalized one-on-one training with the The-Greatest-of-All-Time—Ricky Carmichael—and his team of instructors.
