Freestyle Motocross (also known as FMX) is a variation on the sport of motocross in which motorcycle riders attempt to
impress judges with jumps and stunts. The two main types of freestyle events
1. Big Air, in which each rider gets two jumps — usually covering more than 75ft — from a dirt-covered ramp. Each rider's highest single-jump score is
compared; top score wins.
2. Freestyle Motocross Authentic Justin Abdelkader Jersey , the older of the two disciplines. Riders perform two routines, lasting between 90 seconds and 14 minutes, on a course
consisting of multiple jumps of varying lengths and angles that generally occupy
one to two acres.
Riders for natural jumps and drop-offs to execute their tricks on. Speculation of the possibility began among freestyle motocross riders
in 1998 with the Motocross film Children of a Metal God (1998) featuring riders
attempting the trick into water off a modified ramp. Also it had been done many
times on BMX bikes, and FMX riders were using tricks from BMX riders, such as
when Travis Pastrana performed an Indian Air, originally from Mat Hoffman, a
BMXer. Unbeknownst to most if not all freestyle motocross riders at the
time Authentic Nick Jensen Jersey , two men had already successfully backflipped their motorcycles.
In 1991, Jose Yanez became the first person to backflip a motocross bike, performed the world's first ramp-to-ramp motocross
backflip on an 80 cc motorcycle in October, 1991 on an 8' tall box jump he built
himself in Pagosa Springs, Colorado.
In 1993, Bob Kohl was the second person to perform the backflip on a motocross bike. In 2000, Carey Hart
attempted the first ever backflip on a full size motocross bike off a modified
dirt landing ramp at the Gravity Games 2000. Many people started to attempt it
themselves Jonathan Ericsson Jersey , such as Travis Pastrana, who attempted the backflip off a Step Up jump at Summer X Games Freestyle. The trick was still not
attempted on a normal FMX setup, off a ramp to dirt setup. Carey Hart attempted
the backflip again at Summer X Games in 2001, during the Moto X Best Trick
competition, but bailed off the bike 45 feet in the air.
On April 25, 2002 at the Rogue Valley Motocross track, Caleb Wyatt executed the backflip.
2002 saw the backflip taken to X Games glory.
In 2009 while filming for Nitro Circus Darren Helm Jersey , Travis Pastrana completed a 120 feet backflip as part of a larger crossover jump, flipping over a number of riders below in the
process. On August 4, 2006, at X Games 12 in Los Angeles, he became the first
rider to land a double backflip in competition.
After the crash at X Games, Scott Murray, successfully landing the trick at a Supercross event in
Italy. In early 2009 Martin Frk Jersey , Metal mulisha rider, Jeremy Lusk, attempted a Hart Attack Indian Air Backflip.
In early 2015, Nitro Circus rider, Josh Sheehan landed the first triple backflip, a trick deemed impossible by many, on
a custom rampdirt setup at Travis Pastrana’s “Pastranaland” complex in Maryland.
Riders may choose to wear 'body armor' to protect the chest and legs when performing the most dangerous of tricks Luke Glendening Jersey , as did Travis Pastrana when performing his double backflips. A neck brace may also be worn if riders are concerned about
Riders use modified motocross bikes with after market parts to lower weight and improve performance. Also most riders have graphic
kits on their bikes to show off.
One major component of Freestyle Motocross is the foam pit. The FMX rider will jump from a ramp, practicing one
of the more dangerous tricks, and execute a safe landing into the safe foam
regardless of the actual landing position. The landing ramp is normally
constructed from dirt. When freeriding, however, the rider jumps from dirt to
TBILISI, Aug. 3 (Xinhua) -- The Georgian government has launched a tax rebate system to encourage foreign filmmakers in Georgia, the Georgian National Film
Center said on Monday.
Aimed at developing local film industry and making Georgia an international filming location Henrik Zetterberg Jersey , the "Film in Georgia" initiative offers filmmakers a 20 percent rebate for qualifying expenses and an additional 2
percent for Georgian elements specifically featured in the film.
Feature films costing more than 300,000 U.S. dollars and documentaries more than 150,000 dollars are eligible for this rebate, with at least three days of
shooting in Georgia.
David Vashadze, head of exports and distribution at the Georgian National Film Center, believes that the financial relief will play a crucial role in
drawing foreign filmmakers to Georgia.
"We think that this decision is crucially important for the Georgian film industry. Many film production companies are looking for new and very diverse
territories," he said.
This initiative is part of a broader state program named "Produce in Georgia" Anthony Mantha Jersey , which is aimed at strengthening entrepreneurship and boosting the country's export potential.
