Generation of Triumph drivers “
“I am very excited to announce that I am joining the Triumph family and even more excited to be part of their new venture in the off-road product category.
This is an incredible opportunity for me to join this historic brand and I am honored and humbled to be part of the development and release of their off-road motorcycles. Building something from scratch is something that really fascinates me at this stage in my career. What impresses me is Triumph’s commitment and passion to develop a first-class product. Everyone I’ve been involved with on this project, from engineers, design groups, R&D, etc, have shown extreme passion for what they do and that’s a recipe for success and something I enjoy being a part of.
We all share the same passion and that’s for the best.
If you know the Triumph brand, you already know that craftsmanship is paramount and that the off-road models follow their past!
These times are not only exciting for me, but also an exciting time for the off-road industry to add another brand to the mix and to take advantage of the opportunities that are available for all off-road consumers. I can’t wait to see the reaction when these models hit the dealer’s showrooms. “
“I loved Triumph motorcycles when I was a little kid when I saw them in movies and on TV. So it’s a great opportunity for me to work with Triumph from the start, not only because they work with one of the biggest motorcycle brands in the world, but also to build something from scratch. A dream for every racing driver!
Like me, everyone I work with at Triumph is focused on making the bikes the best they can. I can’t wait to see the world-class motorcycles, but I’m also looking forward to being at a Triumph dealer and knowing that I was part of this very special project. “
Ricky Carmichael – The GOAT
For many, this motorcycle Hall of Fame doesn’t need an introduction. Ricky Carmichael is the greatest motocross racer of all time, also known as “The GOAT”. As an amateur RC, he won 67 national championships before turning pro at the age of 17. In his professional career, he won a record 15 motocross championships with two perfect seasons and another five Supercross championships. In both motocross and supercross, RC won an unmatched 150 races. Always popular in the paddock and with fans, RC has been voted AMA Driver of the Year five times in the course of his career.
Since retiring from professional motocross racing as an athlete, RC is still heavily involved in the sport he loves, from owning a championship team, designing tracks for the Daytona Supercross, directing Ricky Carmichael University, commenting on the Monster Energy AMA Supercross, and working with Triumph as part of the most exciting development in the sport in decades.
Iván Cervantes – El Torito
Five-time world champion Iván Cervantes started his racing career in motocross, where the Spaniard won five national titles before switching to enduro in 2002. At the age of 23, Iván made history by becoming the first Spanish champion in the EnduroGP E1 category. This was followed by three more World Championship titles in EnduroGP and one FIM Indoor Enduro World Cup championship title. In 2008 Iván was Spain’s first and only overall winner at the 83rd edition of the International Six Day Enduro. After his enduro career, Iván turned to the Dakar for his next challenge, where he competed three times and finished what is arguably the toughest motorcycle race in the world twice.
After retiring from professional racing, Iván started working for the Real Federación Motociclista Española as a sports manager for Enduro in Spain. In this role, Iván is the manager of the Spanish Junior Enduro Team and the track inspector for the Spanish National Enduro Championship. Iván’s focus on giving something back to the sport that has given him so much is what Iván sees Triumph as a unique opportunity to work on a completely new off-road project.
