FMF is gearing up for X Games 15 this week, and we’re super stoked to have such a star-studded lineup of athletes ready to contend for metals in all disciplines! Headlining FMF’s athletes is 14-time medal winner and seven-time gold medal winner in Moto X disciplines, Travis Pastrana. Look for Pastrana, who has not competed in Moto X Best Trick since landing the first ever double back flip, to unveil a new trick that will surely blow minds on Friday night inside Staples Center!
Pastrana’s main competitor in Best Trick is the reigning two-time X Games gold medalist in the discipline, and fellow FMF team rider, Kyle Loza. Loza has helped progress the sport of Moto X Best Trick to new heights the past two years with the Vault and the Electric Doom. Look for Loza to continue his innovative riding style at X Games 15.
FMF has had a huge year with the top FMX riders in the world breaking records and winning huge events. Robbie Maddison has set the world on fire by jumping the Arc de Triomphe in Las Vegas, not to mention back flipping the Tower Bridge in London! In between setting world records, Maddison has won major events, including X-Fighters Canada and Best Trick at X-Fighters Madrid. Keep an eye on “Maddo” at X Games 15, as he’s looking to do big things during the Best Trick and FMX competitions. Also look out for FMF’s Nate Adams who is hot off his recent Red Bull X-Fighters win in Texas. Adams has to be among the favorites going into the FMX finals this Saturday night at Home Depot Center.
Another world record-holding FMF athlete competing in X Games 15 is Ronnie Renner. This year has already been an incredible year for Renner, as he’s once again defied the odds and soared to new heights in the Red Bull Experiment. On July 25 in downtown Chicago, Renner smashed his previous motorcycle quarterpipe height record by over three feet, setting a new record of 63 feet five inches. Renner is the 2007 gold medal Step Up winner, and last year backed it up with a silver medal. This year, Renner has his sights set on regaining the gold in Step Up.
In Moto X Super X, FMF will be looking to take the gold with Anaheim I SX winner Josh Grant. Grant has proved that he has the speed to contend for wins in the AMA Supercross and Motocross classes, and will be vying for the top spot this weekend. Other FMF athletes competing in Super X include the wild child Jason Lawrence, KTM’s Justin Brayton and Max Anstie, and JGR Racing’s Cody Cooper.
FMF would like to wish all our athletes congratulations on all the various accomplishments so far this year, and good luck this weekend at X Games 15!
