Carmichael's Ready to Defend 2005-'06 Amp'd Mobile World Supercross GP/Amp'd Mobile AMA Supercross Series Championship
AURORA, Ill. (November 28 2005) -- On December 3rd, Canadian supercross fans will witness Ricky Carmichael, the greatest motocross racer of all time, defend his World Supercross GP championship at the opening round of the Amp'd Mobile World Supercross GP at Toronto's Rogers Centre.
That evening Suzuki's Carmichael, who won seven supercross main events last year, will begin his defense of the greatest season of all time. After winning last year's World Supercross GP in dominant fashion, the Havana, Fla., native captured every other major championship, including the AMA Supercross Series, the 250cc AMA Motocross, the Motocross des Nations and the U.S. Open.
Lining up with Carmichael, the winner of 40 World Supercross GP/AMA Supercross Series races, in Toronto is the most impressive field of riders the Amp'd Mobile World Supercross GP has ever had. Carmichael will be challenged by two-time regional AMA Supercross Series champion James Stewart and former World Supercross GP champion Chad Reed.
"I'm going to Canada to defend my championship," said Carmichael. "I'm excited that Chad Reed, James Stewart, Michael Byrne and David Vuillemin will be there as well. My training program is dialed in, and I am doing everything I can to prepare for this season."
