Ithaca, NY. -- Coming off his rookie season in the highly competitive AMA Supercross class, Paul Carpenter captured the 2007 Canadian National Motocross Championship aboard his Monster Energy/Cernics Kawasaki KX450F.
In doing so, Carpenter became the first American to win the prestigious Canadian crown since 2000, when Doug Dubach last did the feat. Paul wrapped up the 9-round series with one race to spare. He captured 4 overalls in route to the championship.
Paul is no stranger to success on big bikes. He claimed 4 consecutive Four-Stroke National Championships in 2002 & 2003 by winning both the Western & Eastern series. He’s the only rider to ever win back-to-back championships on both coasts.
In 2007, Carpenter finished 7th in the World Supercross Series and 10th in the AMA Supercross Series. He narrowly missed out on the being the 1st privateer. “I’ve always felt like the bigger bikes suited my riding style better said Paul. “I have had some success in the Lites class, (finishing 4th in the 2004 AMA Lites East Coast Supercross series) however, I can utilize my strength and endurance more effectively on big bikes!
2007 Season Recap:
- FIM World Supercross Series -- 7th Overall (2nd Privateer)
- AMA Supercross Series -- 10th Overall (2nd Privateer)
- CMA Canadian National Motocross Championships -- 1st Overall
