Australian Supercross Masters and National Champion Troy Carroll

Troy Carroll, from Toowoomba in Queensland, was one of Australia’s top motocross and supercross riders in the 1990s and 2000s.

After winning 12 junior national titles, Troy turned professional in the senior ranks for the 1996 season, where he won the Australian 125cc Supercross Championship in his first attempt at just 16.  

He and his younger brother Quentin started racing junior motocross at an early age, with the brothers winning multiple National junior titles between them.

In 1997, Troy won back-to-back 125cc Supercross titles aboard a Honda, also claiming his first of three Australian Motocross Championships that year before later switching to Yamaha.

That year he also competed in the United States and was a member of the Australian Team at the Motocross des Nations in Nismes, Belgium, along-side the late Andrew McFarlane and Cameron Taylor.

In 2003 Troy won back-to-back Australian 125cc/Pro Lites Supercross Championships and the premier Supercross Masters series in this class, returning briefly to the United States to compete in the Indianapolis and Atlanta rounds in the 2003 AMA 125ESX Championship.

Troy then moved up into the Pro Open class and went on to win the 2004 and 2005 Australian Championships and Supercross Masters titles.

Troy’s final competitive race was on a Kawasaki KX450F in 2009, after badly breaking his shoulder the year before.

Throughout his career, which spanned two decades, Troy  won three National Motocross, six Supercross and three Thumper Nats Championships.  

His name became synonymous with Australian junior and senior motocross before going on in 2010 to manage the Kawasaki Racing Team for seven years through to 2017, when he established his own trucking company.

The year before his retirement as race manager, in 2016 for his outstanding career achievements, Troy Carroll was inducted into the Australian Supercross Championship Hall of Fame at round 2 of the National titles in Toowoomba, his home town.
