Well if you don't remember, Foster went down at the second Dew Tour stop in Cleveland Ohio dislocating his wrist. Foster has not been able to ride for about two months and now, but yesterday was a good day for him. Foster got his pins pulled, and will be back on his bike just in time for the last Dew Tour event in Orlando.
This past weekend was the Panasonic Dew tour, which was held in Portland, Oregon. This event was the 3rd stop leaving only two more to go. Osiris rider, Jeremy Lusk qualified 3rd in the prelims and was feeling good about his riding. The promoters asked Jeremy if he would do morning media on the day of the finals, which required him to wake up at 5am and be riding by 6am for the local news. While riding before the sun came up, Jeremy went down and broke a few ribs. Being that Jeremy is a machine, he got back on the bike and still managed to get 6th in the finals, and he is still in the running to get top 5 in points. CONGRATS JEREMY!
In other Lusk news, airing Friday, August 24, at 9:00 pm Eastern Time (6:00 pm Pacific Time) and telecast three additional times, gunning it full throttle to reach FMX superstar status, one of the sickest aerialists and a recently anointed Osiris and Metal Mulisha rider, Jeremy Lusk is here.
Moto X Freestyle went off at the Home Depot Center last night. The field of competitors ran deep, and backflips were being thrown down like they were taking leisure Sunday afternoon drives down the coast. Jeremy Lusk was amazing. He might have only placed 5th in the best trick contest, but he wasn't going to settle 5th in this event. Jeremy went backflip crazy. In the end Jeremy would have to settle for 4th place just being edged out by Nate Adams for a podium finish. Not bad at all for Jeremy's first X-Games. Check out the photos of Jeremy below. All photos taken by Chris Tedesco. Thanks Chris.
X-Games XIII started kicked off last night, and if you were in the Staples Center you would have witnessed moto best trick. Super sensation Jeremy Lusk gave it his all and finished 5th with tricks like the one handed indian air backflip. In the end it was Loza who took home the gold. Jeremy will be competing in Moto X freestyle tomorrow night, so don't count him out. A medal could be in his near future.
The '70s cultural icon and poster boy for the fast living and derring-do is 67, his body broken by years of spectacular crashes and ravaged by a multitude of serious ailments. The king of the daredevils can hardly get out of bed most days, let alone straddle a Harley.
This past weekend Knievel is prepared for his annual summer trip to his hometown of Butte, Montana, which celebrates his legend every July with the Evil Knievel Days festival. Last year the festival attracted 50,000 people, and this year ever more came out.
For the past couple of years Knievel has brought out the youth of the sport to put on an action packed FMX demo. This year Justin Homan and his side kick the â€œBOYâ€ came out for the weekend and put on a great show for the dare devil fans.
Cleveland, Ohio hosted the second round of the AST Dew Tour. The course design and layout looked promising, with two massive 90 foot + dirt jumps, a technical double double section, and a slew of ramp jumps. Unfortunately, the course would not be ridden to it's full potential. Mixing dirt riders and high speed winds courtesy of Lake Erie is not a safe equation. Practices were cancelled and prelims were delayed till 11PM. Jeremy Lusk and Brian Foster both looked to improve on their first tour stop results. During the break in the tour, Foster learned Heel Clicker Backflips, and hoped to use it to his advantage to land himself in the finals. In his second run of qualifying, Foster lost his footing on a Backflip Nacnac and was thrown from the bike. The gruesome crash left Foster with a dislocated left wrist. Get well soon Bubbs! Jeremy Lusk was unable to make it into the finals out of the first qualifying runs. Lusk came out swinging in round two of qualifying to take the win and qualify 7th. With huge Seatgrab Backflips, Super Flips, and Indian Air to Indian Air Backflips, Lusk was going to be a force to reckon with in the finals. Lusk's chance at taking his first Dew stop win was cut short when the finals were cancelled due to unsafe riding conditions. The results from prelims would be counted as the final results. Instead, the riders put on a demo for the crowd to give them their moneys worth.
