Here's an excellent article on Ricky Carmichael posted by Steve Cox over at MotoWorldRacing.com. Steve gives us a good glimpse into the mindset of the man who happens to be king, the kid with nothing left to prove: Mr. Two-Perfect-Seasons.
And yet, there still seems to be a bit of an edge to RC's responses. That's a good thing. He's actually still concerned about whether he'll finish this supercross season with the title, and he clearly doesn't expect to dominate the outdoor nationals. More than most fans, Ricky Carmichael seems to understand exactly where he stands and what's going on. He almost sounds like he's conceding the 250 National Championship already... ALMOST (he said he'll be "trying to get a championship")... but knowing Carmichael and his support group, they are probably prepared to pull out all the stops to make sure they bring it all to the table.
As Cox noted, it's going to be an unforgettable season!
