We’re starting a new feature here at Rider Files call “The Clip”. The Clip will feature short audio clips from racing’s past and present.
This week’s clip was taken from an interview with Ricky Carmichael back in 2002 when he was in the middle of compiling he perfect undefeated season in the AMA Motocross Championship. RC was simply unstoppable that year on his factory Honda and was in the process of rewriting the record books.
One of the guys RC was and catching in about every category was the legendary Bob Hannah. In this clip Carmichael talks about chasing Hannah’s records and what he remembered about the Hurricane. — Larry Lawrence
