Triumph ‘Crossers move forward
Triumph has welcomed motocross legend Ricky Carmichael and fivetime enduro world champion Iván Cervantes to its home at Hinckley.
The duo spent the last week with the factory’s motocross and enduro team in the UK. Receiving a warm welcome from Triumph employees, Ricky and Iván took the time to meet some passionate Triumph fans before deep-diving into development workshops with the design team and testing the latest prototypes, continuing in their unique role of providing invaluable feedback and input into the project.
The new off-roaders have not yet broken cover publicly, but Carmichael and Cervantes have been involved in long-term testing of the first bikes. Steve Sargent, Triumph’s chief product officer, said: “It was a pleasure to have Ricky and Ivan with us for a whole week and to continue to take full advantage of their experience with the development of our off-road prototypes.
“Having both legendary motorcycle racers together to contribute to such a crucial phase of the bike’s development is invaluable.”
