MX Sports Announces the Return of Ricky Carmichael University

Morgantown, W. Va. (April 19, 2012) – 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. Stay tuned for details on the UK’s inaugural RCU event or contact
