offroad Off-road Mt. Rushmore

Recommended Posts

This is actually kinda hard because of the different disciplines. My list is based mostly on national competition versus international. My list is also not just based on wins or championships but the hype or vibe of the rider too. Anyways just curious who people choose. Peace out dudes!✌️

Malcolm Smith

Larry Roeseler

Shane Watts

Dick Burleson

 

Honorable Mentions

Randy Hawkins

Ty Davis

Ed Lojak

Terry Cunningham

Dan Smith

Danny Hamel

Kurt Caselli

 You might want to consider John Penton before your list is carved in stone.

Gotta be Americans since it’s Mount Rushmore.
As off-road has so many disciplines I go with riders who can win at a wide variety. 
 

Taylor Robert- ISDE overall winner, Enduro World Championship evert winner, WORCS Champion, Hare & Hound Winner, Sprint Enduro Champion, Endurocross Winner

Larry  Roeseler- won at every discipline in the 80’s

Dick Burleson- dominated National Enduro series for many years when it WAS the off-road series

Ty Davis- Won both National Enduro and Hare & Hound Championships when they where the major US Championships. Plus they are very different styles of racing

 

If it wasn’t US riders have to go with David Night- ISDE overall Winner, World Enduro Champion, GNCC Champion, Endurocross Champion, Super Enduro Champion (world Endurocross). He also dominated Hard Enduro when it started.  He probably should be #1 overall rider in the world

I’ve been fortunate enough to meet all these guys.

Pretty much agree on all the ones that have already been listed, but even though not an american, would have to add Graham Jarvis to the short list. 

Just too difficult to pick the top 4.

Because they're trying to figure out a way to get JS7 on there, they don't have time to worry about Rodney.

I ran into Rodney Smith on a trail at Stoneyford back in about 2002. Of course I tried to hang with him but he blew my doors off like I was standing still. He would make my list.

For me, because he only won at one series. Yes he won a lot and I personally like Rodney, he was my sons team manger at Beta for a couple years, I just couldn’t put him above the others. Fact is he probably could have won at other series if Suzuki was into them or had the bikes.

As a trials guy and Dad of a Endurocross Pro I had a hard time leaving extreme guys off.  I do think they have the best bike skills of anyone, Problem is most of them just aren’t fast enough to win at any other discipline.
