Carey Hart’s motorcycle legacy is indelible and deserved. From his achievements in Freestyle Motocross to his more recent philanthropic work, he has etched his name into motorcycle culture. In 2000, Hart revolutionized the sport of Freestyle MX, when he became the first person to land a backflip on a 250cc motorcycle in competition. Not only did this completely change the landscape of the sport, but it was also the catalyst to Hart’s legacy and career.
In 2004, he segued his passion for motorcycles into his passion for tattoos, opening Hart and Huntington Tattoo Co. Shortly after, Carey and the Las Vegas shop became the central character/theme of the A&E reality show Inked. 2008 saw Hart return to his two-wheeled roots when he launched Hart and Huntington Racing as a team owner/manager. In 2013, he joined forces with Supercross legend Ricky Carmichael and formed RCH Racing. RCH competed in both the AMA Supercross and outdoor AMA Motocross championships, winning the latter in 2016. Most recently, Carey has been drawn back into motorcycle culture by the allure and style of the V-twin platform. He’s found success and satisfaction with the Hot Bike Tour, designing and building custom V-twins. This newfound fascination also initiated Good Ride. Good Ride is a 501(c)(3) organization that puts on a series of charity rallies, that raises funds for various charities close to Carey’s heart.
With monumental championships, achievements, and accolades under his belt, Carey sites his family life as one of his greatest accomplishments. Along with his wife Alecia—an influential performer in her own right—and their two children Willow and Jameson, the Hart’s have committed their lives to pursuing passion and philanthropy whenever and wherever they can.
