Legends and Heroes Tour to Honor Dave Arnold at the San Diego Supercross

Updated: Jan 16

Continuing our tradition of honoring those who made the sport of motocross and supercross what it is today.

The Legends and Heroes Tour will honor Dave Arnold at Monster Energy Supercross, Round 3, in San Diego, CA.

For nearly 50 years, Dave has been one of the motorcycle industry icons since beginning his career at Honda in the mid-1970s. Soon after he began at Honda, he started working with Marty Smith, who won the ‘74 and ‘75 125cc titles and the ‘77 500 championship.

Fast forward 50 years, and Dave is still at it, working with Triumph Motorcycles to develop their new motocross line.

• Dave was inducted into the AMA Hall of Fame in 2021

• Working with Roger De Coster, Dave organized an all-Honda effort comprising riders Donnie Hansen, Danny LaPorte, Johnny O’Mara, and Chuck Sun and scored Team USA’s first win in the Motocross des Nations and Trophee des Nations.

• Dave has a long list of motocross and supercross titles with riders including David Bailey, Rick Johnson, Ron Lechien, Jean-Michel Bayle, Jeff Stanton and Jeremy McGrath.
