Kevin Carmichael

Triumph-riding Kevin Carmichael is one of the most innovative and stylish stunt riders in the world and he has titles to prove it: listing world stunt riding champion and three-times European stunt riding champion among his many awards.

Kevin has also won the Burns Day competition in 2004, which is widely regarded as the best stunt competition in the world as contestants are judged by the crowd’s reaction rather than a panel.

Kevin started to ride bikes at a mere seven years old and competed in motocross for many years. During his motorcross career Kevin won several club championships, was Scottish Expert Schoolboy Champion and came second in the Scottish Junior Adult Championship. His stunt riding career began in 1997, just eight weeks before the European championship he went on to win. Since then, Kevin and his team have performed in various countries throughout the world.

Softly-spoken, friendly and always ready to chat with fans or sign autographs, Kevin’s easy-going personality hides a steely determination to succeed that drives him to spend hours perfecting his routines and a quiet confidence in his own abilities that allows him to perform them in front of thousands of spectators.

A pioneer of stunt riding for many years, Carmichael is well known for the unique, dynamic and fascinating riding style that he invented and perfected. Many of the tricks performed by other world champion stunt riders, have been either adopted from or inspired by Kevin’s own routines. For example Kevin was the first person to perform a wheelie on a superbike without a front wheel or forks and the first to wheelie in a circle with two passengers.

Kevin rides only Triumph motorcycles in his stunt shows, performing worldwide with various models including the Street Triple, Speed Triple, Thruxton and the awesome Rocket III.
