Carmichael to appear on TV show.

AMA Supercross/Motocross legend Ricky Carmichael, one of the most successful American motocross racers of all time, will feature on the hit BBC2 show Top Gear this Sunday (5th July) at 8 pm, when he will ride a Suzuki motocross bike alongside US rally star Ken Block.

"We're delighted that Ricky Carmichael will appear on Top Gear this week,” said Suzuki GB's George Cheeseman. “He is simply a legend in motocross and it's extremely encouraging to know that the sport will gain some airtime on one of the most popular TV shows around."

Carmichael retired from Supercross/Motocross racing at the end of 2007 having won 16 AMA titles. RC also won every single race in the 2002 and 2004 Motocross seasons. Carmichael has now begun a new career in stock car racing.
