During the 2017 Monster Energy Supercross Series, we noticed a number of filmers around the IB Corp Racing team during the West Coast portion of the tour. At that time it wasn’t clear what was happening, but since it was an upstart team with two riders and influential staff members, we figured they were up to something good. The production was actually part of a reality-style show that gives an inside look at what is necessary to compete at the highest levels of motocross racing. The team has release episode one that shows how current racer Martin Castelo and former racer turned trainer Ryan Hughes were brought together by mutual friends.
This is just one part of a larger project that the production crew and team recently wrapped up, which put five racers against each other in a competition of talent, marketing savvy, and physical fitness for the final spot on the team for 2018.
