About Bob Moore-
From very early in his career, Bob Moore’s professional motocross goal was to become World Champion, and in 1994 he achieved that goal by winning the 1994 FIM 125 World Championship.
In his first year as a professional racer, Moore won the AMA 125 West Coast Supercross Championship. The young athlete then set his sights on Europe and the pursuit of a World Championship. During the next nine years, Moore won 28 individual motos in the 125 and 250 classes. He was runner-up three times in that championship: 1990 and 1991 in the 125 class and 1992 in the 250 class. Moore also won three German National Championships, and, in 1990, he took the Indoor German Motocross crown.
In 1994 Moore achieved his goal of becoming a World Champion. He earned the 1994 FIM World Championship.
Following his success in Europe, Moore returned to the United States but did not leave the sport. He managed the FMF Honda motocross team. In 2000, Moore co-founded the Road 2 Recovery charity. He teamed with injured motocross racer Jimmy Button to form the foundation, eventually establishing an endowment that provides funds to offset the expenses incurred by injured racers and their families.
Today, Moore works for Wasserman Media Group. Moore is executive vice president of motorsports, action sports, and Olympics and works with MotoGP racers.
Join us on Saturday night as we honor Bob.
