Truly the most successful rider in AMA supercross history, Jeremy McGrath has a
record 72 250cc supercross wins, seven supercross titles - a feat no other racer in supercross
history has even come close to - two additional 125 Western Region Supercross Championships, one 250 Outdoor National Championship and two FIM World Supercross Championships.
After retiring from the sport he helped define in 2003, Jeremy entered the Summer X-Games every year from 2004 to 2009, winning five medals, including one gold, in Step-Up, SuperMoto and Super X. He was inducted into the AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame in 2003. He is also a talented businessman - he was the first pro racer to form and operate his own Supercross race team and is the first Supercross racer to have his own toy line and his own line of signature shoes.
Born in San Francisco, California and now resident in nearby Encinitas, Jeremy’s first motorcycle was a mini-bike powered by a Briggs & Stratton lawnmower motor. However, he honed his early racing skills on the competitive southern California BMX circuit and only turned his attention to the sport he was to go on and dominate in his mid-teens.
His spectacular style, particularly during the 1990s when he won six of his supercross championships, earned him the title of "King of Supercross”. His unique moves, including the signature ‘Nic Nac’, which he showed off while doing jumps on the supercross track, helped develop the sport of freestyle motocross and made him a fans’ favourite.
