The 2016 Legends and Heroes Supercross Moto Museum Tour is departing the West Coast, and now heads east with the Monster Energy Supercross series. Next stop is Arlington, Texas, where the Legends and Heroes Tour will pay homage to amateur and pro motocross legend Robbie Reynard at the AT&T Stadium.
In 1993, Oklahoma’s Robbie Reynard was one of the most heralded and highly anticipated rookies to enter professional motocross in the history of the sport. He was plastered in every Fox Racing catalog from here to Acapulco-and those catalogs were the equivalent to getting a motocross magazine. Robbie then made quite a splash, as he became the youngest winner ever of an AMA Motocross National when he took the ’93 Steel City National, barely three months past his 16th birthday, as well as winning the National Arenacross Championship that same year.
Reynard was recognized as one of the most naturally talented riders of his time, but also unfortunately collected more than his fair share of injuries. In his prime, Robbie starred in some memorable battles, and celebrated a number of victories such as his infamous win at Steel City in 1998.
Alex Moroz, General Managing partner of the Legends and Heroes Tour states, “This rider from Oklahoma City was a six-time champion at Loretta’s, winning his final title at the mecca of amateur motocross in 1992. Reynard had a promising start to his professional career, becoming the youngest rider to win an outdoor national and Arenacross championship in the same year. Some years after retirement Robbie came back and won three Vet championships at the famed Loretta Lynn’s. Even at last year’s Lucas Oil Iron Man pro motocross national Robbie ran a strong second to the GOAT, Ricky Carmichael, in the Legends race showing everyone his desire to still compete.”
Robbie Reynard will be at the Legends and Heroes Moto Museum display this Saturday afternoon at the Monster Energy Party in the Pits for a meet-and-greet with the fans. He will be presented the coveted Legends and Heroes Award by six-time AMA Champion Broc Glover on the Monster Energy Supercross podium Saturday evening in the AT&T Stadium.
