Crash before X Fighters and X Games…

Monday, July 26th, 2010

Some of you might have noticed I did not make it to Red Bull X Fighters Madrid.

The day before my flight to Madrid I crashed out at the Wyvern Training Facility. I had a mess up on the 115 foot set up that got me a helicopter ride to the hospital. I ended up dislocating my elbow, and received 9 stitches to my eye lid.

I have been working day in and day out with Dr. Terry Weyman to strengthen for X Games, being only human with less then a week I had to pull out of my X Games invite. Just staying positive and looking forward to what comes in the future!

Thanks to Dr.T for working with me daily for speedy recovery!

See you in the pits at X!


Positive words from Brian Deegan!

Thursday, July 22nd, 2010

I was doing my morning scans of the MX websites as I came across the MXA Midweek report with a interview from The General, Brian Deegan. MXA asked him,

Who do you predict will be the next big freestyle riders in the sport?”

Brian answered,

“The main guy that will be a big deal in the next couple of years is Jackson Strong. He’s 18 years old and he does a front flip. We’re putting a lot of effort behind him. I see a lot of traits in Jackson that Jeremy Lusk had. There are some other guys out there. This sport needs an amateur program, because without it there’s no future. Not everyone can afford ramps and property. There’s also Levi Sherwood and Lance Coury.”

Felt good to read that.
