Bob Hannah is a many time AMA Supercross & Motocross Champion. He raced to three AMA Supercross titles in a row, from 1977 thru 1979. Bob won his Supercross titles racing for Yamaha, but he also went on to ride for Honda, and Suzuki.
I had heard all the stories about Bob: He wasn’t friendly. He wasn’t nice to the media. He’s a tough guy to work with. And on and on and on …
Well, maybe that was true is his racing days. But I can tell you, the Bob Hannah of today is one of the nicest guys around. Always has a smile on his face, takes plenty of time to always talk with his fans, and took plenty of time to talk with me about Supercross and the sport ‘back in the day’. A true pleasure to work with.
So, I sat down with him to talk to him about being a Supercross Champion. I’ll have more with Bob Hannah – the complete interview, at a later date. For now, I wanted to share with you just a brief excerpt of the first real Supercross Superstar in our sport. You’ll see Bob ‘gets it’. He fun, funny, smart, and …. seems to be truly happy in life.
