It’s with great sadness that we announce the passing of 1980 Supercross Champion and Yamaha Wall of Champions Inductee Mike “Too Tall” Bell. The 63-year-old reportedly suffered a heart attack while mountain biking on January 24, 2021. Mike rode for Team Yamaha his entire seven-year professional career, winning a total of 20 AMA® and Trans-AMA® events. After retiring from his love of racing, Mike stayed within the motorcycle industry working for both White Brothers and Oakley®. Mike will be remembered by all who knew him as simply a wonderful human being and our “One Yamaha” hearts go out to his family and friends. Godspeed Mike Bell.
