Career summary

Crump won his first major junior title in 1990 becoming Australian Under 16 champion, and he progressed through the ranks to become Individual U-21 World Champion in 1995. That same year he made his Speedway Grand Prix debut as a wild card in the British Grand Prix - he won his first three rides, but fell in the B final to finish 8th overall.

His first Grand Prix victory came in 1996, again riding at the British Grand Prix, although this time as a full-time Grand Prix rider. He has won the World Team Cup in 1999 and the new Speedway World Cup on two further occasions with the Australian team in 2001 and 2002.

Crump's first world title came in 2004cite web | last = | first = | authorlink = | coauthors = | title = Crump claims world title | work = | publisher = BBC | date = 3 October 2004 | url = http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport2/hi/motorsport/motorbikes/3710880.stm | format = | doi = | accessdate = 2007-12-02 ] when he beat Tony Rickardsson having won 2 of the 9 GP in that season. He dominated the 2006 season winning four out of nine GPs to take the title for the second time beating Greg Hancock into second place.

Crump won the 'Treble' riding for the Peterborough Panthers in Britain during the 1999 season, winning the Elite League, the Knockout Cup and the Craven Shield. [Bamford, R.(2007). "Speedway Yearbook 2007". ISBN 978-07524-4250-1]

He rode for the Belle Vue Aces for five seasons until the end of 2006 when, in 2007, Crump signed for the Poole Pirates in the British Elite League. At the end of the 2007 it was announced that Crump would be leaving Poole due to the drastic cut in points limit made by the (BSPA) at the 2007 AGM.cite web | last = | first = | authorlink = | coauthors = | title = It's over | work = | publisher = Daily Echo | date = 3 December 2007 | url = http://www.bournemouthecho.co.uk/sport/topsport/display.var.1875005.0.its_over.php | format = | doi = | accessdate = 2007-12-03 ] . Crump returned to Belle Vue on loan for the 2008 season and has since been re-signed by the Belle Vue management making him a Belle Vue asset once again. Crump has already agreed a deal to ride for Belle Vue in 2009.
