The Legendary Kevin Schwantz
Grand Prix World Champion Kevin Schwantz raced only one way — he raced to win. When he made his move for a pass, the world held its breath.
Kevin showed levels of desire, determination and raw courage that‘s never been equaled. His heart-stopping style and charismatic personality won him legions of loyal fans worldwide.
By the time he was done, Schwantz amassed 25 Grand Prix wins, 21 lap records, 29 pole positions and the 1993 World Championship. When he made his tearful retirement, the world wept with him and the FIM felt the loss to the sport was so significant that they retired his signature competition number 34. It’s the first time in the history of the sport that a rider had been so honoured.
In the coming weeks, we will be announcing the schedule to our “celebrity guest instructors” and we are both honoured and excited to work with Kevin. As many of you may know, his skills in riding are undeniable, but what you may not have been aware of are his talents in driving as he demonstrated at our Grand Opening Event on June 6.
Kevin, thank you for being a part of our grand opening celebrations. We are glad to hear our facilities including the Villa Eyrie Resort have impressed you enough to join our Celebrity Instructor Program. We’re excited to see you soon!
