Dalton Venter, the 4 time African Motocross champion and 2 time South African champion managed to somehow convince the team manager from Monster Energy Yamaha Racing team to let him and his team mates go and whip the hell out of a steel FMX ramp at King of the Whip and there was a fair chance he could win it!When I watched Dalton for the first time…
 
After finally meeting Dallan after so many years, it was great to grab a quick 5 minute chat with him before he was about to throw down at King of the Whip and see if he could stand on top of the box at the end of the night. During our chat though, I was surprised when he dropped the bombshell that he was considering quitting FMX because of the bac…
 
Normally a Best Whip competition is just a small side act, of a bigger Freestyle Motocross competition or Motocross / Supercross race. How did Ryan van der Spuy manage to bring the best riders in South Africa and now international riders like Julien Vanstippen (X Games gold medallist) to try out this crazy new event idea from the best FMX riders, M…
 
Less than one hour before the King of the Whip was about to go down, I grabbed a few quick chats with the riders to see how they were dealing with the pressure. And no one had more pressure than the reigning King of the Whip, Scotty Billet. It had been 3 years since the previous round of competition, and with X Games Gold Medallist Julien Vanstippe…
 
We have been so used to watching the same old riders being shuffled out to a Best Whip competition at X Games since about 2010. It has been so hard for any young guys to get a foot in the door to try prove themselves against so many medal winners and contenders from Jeremy 'Twitch' Stenberg, Ricky Carmichael, Jarryd McNeil, Tom Parsons, Edgar Torro…
 
Nitro World Games 2022 produced the craziest Best Trick event we have seen since Travis Pastrana landed the Double Flip in 2006 X Games. This time around, it would be not one, but two riders who would create FMX Competition history with Jayo Archer and Harry Bink going head to head to land the Triple Backflip for the first time in a comp. Not to me…
 
As I was on the road driving through France, Belgium and into Germany I joined Clint Esposito on his show to talk more in-depth about Nitro World Games 2022 which could be one of the most defining FMX competitions EVER. I already covered this in the short 15 minute Riders List a few days ago, but we go into wayyyyy more details and Clint thought of…
 
With Nitro World Games just a few days away, I wanted to give you the rider list before we are about to possibly witness history being made! Will it be Jayo and Bink going at it for the Triple Backflip - first to be landed in Competition? A trick only landed once by Sheeny? Or will it be Clinton Moore on the 720? Also only landed once by Travis Pas…
 
The 2022 Red Bull Imagination competition went even bigger compared to the previous years! Tyler Bereman and co built upon the past 2 years courses to produce something special and the crowning glory was Tyler sacking up and sending this huge 180 feet transfer jump which blew everyone's minds! This episode is taken from the Companion video which I …
 
All I could see in my mind, was a newspaper headline saying "Idiot Australian lost in Indonesia Jungle" What started as a disaster on my first ever FMX Tour of Indonesia, turned into a really cool opportunity to go riding in the jungle to the top of a volcano with Sheeny and Clinton Moore. And then almost back to disaster again! This is a short cli…
 
This week we’ve got one of the top 110 riders in the world with us right now, but don’t go sticking him in that box. This dude is talented on anything with 2 or 4 wheels and has an engine. Keeping it old school and preferring it to be a 2 stroke! From Motocross to Supercross, Rally, Side by Sides, 110s, BMX or whatever he can get his hands on, Bank…
 
History has been made in X Games Moto this year with Jacko Strong landing the first ever 110ft Front Flip, before Rob Adelberg bested it with the first ever Front Flip to Front Flip in a line (Next Gen ramp into 110ft ramp) to blow everyone's mind. Guillem Navas broke the Quarter Pipe Highest Air record on his first jump of the competition but by t…
 
With X Games 2022 just around the corner, Edgar Torronteras joins to talk about who's in, who's out and where the hell did his invite get sent too for this years event, because his name is again, not on the list! We talk about all the disciplines from Freestyle Moto (or is it Freeride?), Best Trick, Best Whip, Quarter Pipe Highest Air and 110s Sit …
 
It's almost that time of the year for X Games to roll around again and this time we've got a full riders invite list 1 month before the competition! There are some surprises like Axell Hodges in the Freestyle Motocross discipline, but huge line-ups in every discipline. Will we see any new tricks in FMX this year, or new records broken in the Quarte…
 
NIGHT of the JUMPs returned for 2022 with the Freestyle of Nations in Munich and Cologne with almost back to back events after a couple of years in Covid-19 limbo and we wrap-up both events with this short, sharp podcast! Firstly we cover Munich with the World Team vs Team Czech vs Team France. Huge crashes, some controversial decisions I thought, …
 
James Bond's stunt man and one of the greatest action sports athletes of all time has joined to talk all things FMX. But the spotlight isn't on Robbie Maddison, the man who has broken so many World Records, but actually his young 11 year old son, Kruz Maddison. Kruz recently performed in his first ever FMX show at Freestyle Kings in Australia, and …
 
What does it take to achieve your childhood dream? Kai Haase just took the best from his 2021 season riding every damn 2-wheel discipline he could and amplified it by x1000 as he rode in his first ever Monster Energy AMA Supercross event, and not just any old round, but the biggest one! ANAHEIM 1 One of the most naturally skilled dirt bike riders o…
 
A new year, new events, new bikes and way more news from the Freestyle Motocross world in 2022. Funnily enough, I didn't even bother to check my emails but the Riders Lounge Podcast has been shortlisted on the Sports Podcast Awards a couple of weeks ago. If you would like to vote, check it out here: https://www.sportspodcastawards.com/ Injury updat…
 
The Ultimate Rundown of Levi Sherwood's brand new FMX Bike! Full Video Podcast: https://share.recast.app/v/5m24R?referrer=8Plb2 It doesn't get much more in-depth than this, as Levi goes through the entire Freestyle Motocross bike design and why he felt the need to completely overhaul the KTM 250SX into this Frankenstein which is for the most part, …
 
Welcome to a bonus episode: This is a Companion, to the Companion of the Red Bull Imagination freeride competition. Basically, I jumped on a Zoom call with the FMX Comedian, Clint Esposito from Two Wheels to Freedom and FMX rider Austin Drummond as we watched the latest offering from Red Bull. And the best part of doing these types of things, I fin…
 
Why do you get out of bed in the morning? Paul Everest is one of the most influential minds in Action Sports who grew one of the most recognisable brands from a couple hundred bucks in the garage to a multi-million dollar behemoth. He then rode the private and public rollercoaster that went along with the exponential growth of Unit Clothing which b…
 
To say it feels incredible to see events happening again would be an understatement. To hear the cheering of the ecstatic Swiss crowd at NIGHT of the JUMPs in September was unbelievable and to witness the elation from the actual FMX and MTB riders who threw down on the night was even more impressive. It was an emotional event, with some riders doin…
 
NIGHT of the JUMPs is back with the first competition after the Lockdown and they are bringing a new format to Switzerland for the first time, the Freestyle of Nations! We preview the first FMX competition on European soil with some legends joining me on this special episode to talk about the three teams going head to head, with Team Germany vs. Fr…
 
What was planned for a quick 5 minute voice message for the X Games review series, turned into a full blown interview with the legend of Freestyle Motocross, a man who epitomised the sport, before it was even 'a thing'. We talk with none other than ET, Edgar Torronteras. Of course there was plenty to talk about with this years X Games being complet…
 
Beating Axell Hodges on his home turf, Colby Raha broke the X Games record for Quarter Pipe Highest Air by sending his Husky 40 feet 9 inches to claim the Gold Medal in the 2021 competition, relegating Axell to a Silver medal. Unfortunately, Corey Creed who held the previous record only one inch lower at 40'8", was knocked out of competition, liter…
 
It's time for the big one! Best Trick is the event we wait for every year to see what everyone has been working on, and after last years hiatus, I think it's fair to assume everyone was really looking forward to this event since the guys had effectively 2 years to hone their tricks! And it looked like only David Rinaldo was willing to bring somethi…
 
X Games unveiled an all new moto discipline this year with the 110's or Mini Bikes, or Pit bikes.. or whatever you want to call them! I thought it would have been pit-bike racing but it turned out to be a full freestyle run and Axell Hodges took the win on his home turf over a field of some big name Moto and BMX riders. I'm not going to lie, I didn…
 
The motocross discipline which measures style over anything else, returned to X Games 2021 with Best Whip and there was a huge shake-up in the results with surprise eliminations and a very deserving winner! Tom Parsons brought the heat with some of the biggest whips ever done on a dirt bike, and he took the win over Wanky (Genki Watanabe) who has s…
 
X Games Freestyle Moto is one of the most important and longest running motocross discipline in the ESPN stables. In 2021, it didn't disappoint and there was so much going on, that it gave us plenty to talk about here! From the difficult course bugging out most riders, the judging, the crashes and even what time everyone must have had to wake up to…
 
The first major international FMX competition for 2021 is done and dusted, and there is a lot to talk about with this unique X Games event! So much so, we will break it down into each discipline and bring in plenty of riders to give their opinion on the olympics of Action Sports. This episode, we look at the overall impression of the event, with a …
 
It's finally official. X Games is back for 2021! July 14-18th and the Moto will be held at Axell Hodges' compound, Slayground! New Riders. New Location. New Discipline. Plenty of old guys! A few big names missing, and a few big surprises as well! You can read all of these points as well on the blog here: https://ridersloungepodcast.com/2021/06/25/x…
 
Nate Adams won everything there is to win in Freestyle Motocross, and at the same time he was focused 100% on FMX progression, he began a glove-only brand called Deft Family which was revolutionary at the time. We catch up with 'The Destroyer' to find out how he was able to continue to be the man to beat at the top of his sport, while learning all …
 
We go deep into Industry Insider territory on this latest episode with the Chief Energy Officer of Nitro Circus Live and one-half of the 'Skip This Podcast' duo, Nathan Brown. There's so much ground to cover in this episode from the Metal Mulisha vs Crusty Demons days of 2005 to the Crusty Demons vs Nitro Circus Live battleground in 2009, Nitro tak…
 
Jason Ryan is currently producing one hell of a documentary called "Out of the Loop : The Jose Yanez Documentary" which will re-write Action Sports history, detailing the story of the first ever back flip on a motorcycle which was landed by BMX Pro rider, Jose Yanez in 1991. If you haven't heard the name Jose Yanez before, you're like most of us wh…
 
As one of Australia’s best Freestyle Motocross exports, and with many more years left up his sleeve, I think you’re about to get an insight into the mind of someone who’s on the edge of FMX greatness. While he has had some big wins like at the Nitro World Games a couple of years ago, and having a trick list longer than your arm and certainly more t…
 
Buckle up! This is one rip snorter of a Riders Lounge Podcast interview with one of Australia’s greatest motocross exports who has completely taken the disciplines of Best Whip and Step-Up to new levels and he is clearly not scared to call a spade a bloody shovel. Actually today, you’re going to be educated on the history of Freestyle Motocross. As…
 
I feel like Covid-19 has been the rehearsal for a lot of athletes, in any sport, to show them what their lives will look like after they make the decision to retire. And like most athletes, who find out they’re good at something at a young age, they have been focused on that one particular sport their entire lives to become – the best. You can’t be…
 
Jayo Archer is on the toughest journey in Freestyle Motocross, working on the Triple Backflip! You may or may not have heard much about Jayo. He’s kept a fairly low profile, which is surprising for the things he has achieved already so far! From building his own ramp to try the Triple, the adjustments, trying to work out the exit angles where the r…
 
Hi and welcome to the Riders Lounge Podcast, I’m Steve Sommerfeld your host for today’s online chat with another of Freestyle Motocross’ top riders and who has actually just picked up his 5th Brazilian FMX Championship, all the way from Sao Paolo in Brazil, it’s Fred Kyrillos. While we still are in a holding pattern of no events, I’m stoked Fred wa…
 
Matt Buyten needs specific weight training on his neck muscles simply to stand up straight with the huge haul of X Games Gold, Silver and Bronze medals he's picked up over the years in Moto Step Up. Even though the X Games website says he has 7 medals - in fact, he has 12 medals from all of the X Games events! See, sometimes the internet can get th…
 
Before having millions of YouTube views like today, Sebastian Westberg had a meteoric rise to the top echelons of FMX after winning the chance to ride at Red Bull X-Fighters as the first "Novillero" with a Fan Vote in 2016 in Madrid, Spain. But one day before the event, he broke his leg in the foam pit training on a Flair 540! Somehow he slipped hi…
 
Undoubtedly one of the greatest ever Freestyle Motocross riders, Levi Sherwood stunned the FMX world when he won at his first ever appearance of the 2009 Red Bull X-Fighters event in Mexico City. Levi then stunned the world when he retired from competition only 10 years later in 2019, at the age of 28, when he was seemingly at the peak of his caree…
 
There has been so much going on since the last FMX news update, my head has been spinning! And I’m really stoked on the future of the sport, even if there is plenty of doom and gloom going around at the moment. It sucks that as riders, there are no events, it sucks as fans that we have to wait another year to see our favourite riders come to a town…
 
Fungi as I have always known him as, was one of the elder statesmen of the Australian Freestyle Motocross movement! Jeremy Furniss broke out from the WA scene and was featured in the early FreeriderMX Magazines where of course most of us found out about anyone back in the old days and he had quite a good career riding FMX shows. The combo-king grew…
 
With the X Games Real Moto 2020 series all wrapped up, I caught up with one of the contestants who in my mind, had the best looking video I've seen out of every season so far! The production value was unbeatable. Corey Creed together with filmmaker Allan Hardy created their own Hollywood Stunt Driver version of a Real Moto video, with Corey Creed p…
 
This episode is dedicated to Tomas Brat, a young FMX rider from Czechia. My thoughts go out to his family and friends, a young rider taken too soon. In this episode, we have the results of the X Games Real Moto competition - from the Judges (with Mike Mason, Twitch and Jimmy Hill) and also the Fan Vote on Colby Raha, Corey Creed, Jacko Strong, Vick…
 
In this special Podcast episode, I review the all new X Games Real Moto video clips, because so much went into every clip, it's not hard to miss some aspects to it! This year, the star-studded rider line-up included Vicki Golden, Colby Raha, Josh Hill, Jacko Strong, Cody Webb and Corey Creed. I really wish the videos were longer than 1 minute 30 se…
 
James Trincucci has taken a completely different path into Freestyle Motocross than most! From a Trials champion venturing into riding the infamous Erzberg with absolutely no prior Enduro experience, you now won't be surprised to hear that once meeting the Italian guys from DaBoot, James just decided to jump a ramp and see how it goes. Half Italian…
 
One of the pioneers of Freestyle Motocross, Doug Parsons has not only helped push the sport through his riding prowess and time in the hills. But Parsons was an integral part in evolving the sport with the first ever Quarter Pipe build which is now a huge draw card for X Games at the moment. However, building ramps is only a small part of the story…
 
Davide Rossi may be one of the nicest guys in FMX, but as soon as that helmet goes on, the full-blown competitor inside comes out. No matter if he's competing in the World Championships at NIGHT of the JUMPs, Nitro World Games or against his good friend and almost neighbour, Leo Fini. Davide is one of the next generation riders who appears to simpl…
