Dave Nicoll 1944-2023
It is with great sadness that we have learnt of the recent passing of Dave Nicoll, former British motocross rider and the FIM Motocross World Championship Race Director from 2000 to 2013.

Nicoll began motorcycle racing at the age of 16 and started competing in the FIM 500cc Motocross World Championship in 1964. His first win came at the 1969 Luxembourg Motocross GP and the following year, in what was a huge moment, he beat Joel Robert and Jeff Smith to win the Trans AMA Motocross Series. Nicoll stopped competing in 1978 and worked as the manager of the British Motocross des Nations team. When his son, Kurt Nicoll began competing in the FIM Motocross World Championship, Dave Nicoll became his team manager.

After his son retired from competition in 1997, Nicoll was hired by the FIM to become the Race Director for the FIM Motocross World Championship. He was a real gentleman and an invaluable member of the Motocross paddock.

The FIM motocross family extend its deepest condolences to Dave's family, to the Auto-Cycle Union and his many friends.
