FMX - Freestyle Motocross
A relatively new adaptation of motocross, freestyle motocross – or FMX – does not involve racing, but is more concerned with tricks, stunts and jumps. This variation of the sport is relatively new, and has only been accepted in the mainstream for about a decade. Once considered impossible, the backflip is an important and sought-after trick in FMX. While it has been successfully landed, to this day it still causes serious and fatal injuries even in professional riders. In this video, WatchMojo.com speaks with a freestyle motocross rider to learn about the training, tricks and travel involved in the FMX life.
