Mike Gosselaar, a 13-year veteran has been with Carmichael since the 2003 season. Since then, they have accumulated three supercross championships as well as three motocross championships and one world championship.
The Kawasaki duo of James Stewart and Jeremy Albrecht placed second to Carmichael in the battle for the AMA championship, but took the Amp’d Mobile World Supercross championship with a 3 point lead. Albrecht, who joined the Kawasaki team in 1995, has been with Stewart since the beginning of his professional career.
