Who I am

I have a proven reputation within the motocross industry not only for being a Motocross and Supercross Champion, but also for training former and current top pros from the amateur level on up to the professional level.

Donnie Hansen Motocross Academy

I established the Donnie Hansen Motocross Academy in 1984 after a career-ending injury forced me to retire from competition. DHMA is based both in California and Colorado where I train riders on a private and semi-private basis. I also travel around the Country teaching schools and camps. Since the inception of DHMA in 1984, I have trained over 15,000 students throughout the U.S. and abroad.

My credentials speak for themselves – with the knowledge I have from beating the best riders in the world, Hannah, Johnson, O’Mara, Barnett, Glover and more. to working with the top riders of today, including Villopoto, Dungey, Weimer, Short, Tedesco, Josh & Justin Hill, and Josh Hansen, just to name a few, I can assure you that you will be getting the best instruction available.

There are plenty of pro and amateur riders out there that decide to teach, but their knowledge and experience is limited. I hope you will invest in yourself or your rider, and participate in one of my classes – you won’t be disappointed.

Thank you.
