Dirt Rider magazine hired one of the fastest office temps in the motocross world, Ricky Carmichael, to take over the helm for one issue, the January 2013 edition, on sale November 20th, 2012. Take a look at this behind-the-scenes video teaser showing Ricky pre-riding the Elsinore National track, putting in some time at the Dirt Rider offices, and grabbing a Dirt Rider cover (who else should grace the RC issue?). Inside the issue Ricky gives his rundown of the 2013 racers and makes his predictions and gives his insight on what to look for in the next race season. He gets interviewed on his life on and off the track, and then takes us to school in the California stop of his Ricky Carmichael University. The issue has plenty of cool surprises that you won’t want to miss… here’s your first peek.
