“I still just get that same buzz out of somebody passing me, and trying to figure what to do to go faster to elevate my game, to run him back down.” — Kevin Schwantz

Kevin Schwantz, a 1993 500cc World Champion, is an accomplished motorcyclist, racer, instructor and owner of the Schwantz School. Here’s an interview with him as he goes over his career, his earliest memories of motorcycles and how to get your start in motorcycling racing.

  • Nathan Wiley

    Always liked that guy. People like him and Colin Edwards are just down to earth folks who love motorcycles. Some of the prima donnas in racing today could take a page from their book and lose some of the bullshit ego. Yeah, I’m talking to you James Stewart.

    • Damo Von Maciel

      I couldn’t agree more. I got the chance to me Colin Edwards out at Laguna Seca last year and was the most approachable and “normal” person on the grid.
