The MDP Block is hot in Temecula, CA, as the best freestyle motocross riders in the world prepare for the coming summer. The sport is going through a renaissance of sorts, as competitions, while forever important, are beginning to take a backseat to tours and demo rides around the world. After a lengthy spell of off the bike due to shoulder injuries, Nate Adams is going full-bore at preparing for every stop along the way. “Patchy” spent a handful of days getting his bearings back with countless launches into his private foam pit to reclaim his lost 360 spins and then carried his newly sharpened skills over to the freestyle course that takes up his backyard. DEFT Family’s filmer, Ryan Walters, captured the comeback and sent the edits our way.
