“At just three-and-a-half years old I was given a Honda QR50 and in just six months I was well into the competitive swing of club motocross and the dream of chasing glory as a famous dirt bike rider. I went on to win multiple club championships and progressed through to racing A-grade in the 125/250 classes but it was FMX that really caught my attention. At 15, I made the move to Sydney to begin an apprenticeship and also follow my dream of making it at as a professional FMX rider. I partnered with mentors such as Jacko Strong and learned the dreaded back flip and the other gnarly combinations that follow. This opened up doors to the rest of the world. I entered his first ever FMX contest at age 17, placing second against other top tier Australian riders with far more experience. From here, event management companies from around the world were inviting me to ride at their live demonstrations.  I didn’t see these opportunities as a chance for a holiday but as a chance to cement a position within the highly skilled FMX industry.”

“I’m 25 years old and have been riding since I was three. My first bike was a PW50 and I’ve been hooked ever since. I started riding freestyle consistently in 2013 on a YZ250. I got the chance to ride in the City Coast Motorcycles Yatcon Civil FMX Jam which was a great opportunity. I look forward to seeing where FMX can continue to take me and all the new people that I will meet along the way.”

“I’m 20 years old and have been riding freestyle for about two-and-a-half years. When I started off it was just for the fun of it and I didn’t think it would go anywhere. But I have gotten to meet and ride with some of the best riders in Australia. Definitely the best experience is the City Coast Motorcycles Yatcon Civil FMX Jam at Illawarra Convoy.”

Dylon Mcdonald Profile

“Hey guys, I’m Dylon McDonald from the South Coast and I ride freestyle motocross. Freestyle for me is an expression of what I love to do; it’s flying through the air, letting go and floating above your bike! I have been fortunate enough to ride in China for six months with Freestyle Kings as well as at Convoy for Kids! These would be a highlight for me and my career in freestyle, but no matter where this sport takes me as long as I’m on my bike I’m happy!”

“Hey I’m Michael Chucky Norris and I ride dirt bikes for a living. One of the most fortunate things about being a professional FMX rider is travelling around the globe seeing amazing places.  Some of my FMX career highlights have been: First place in both rounds of the FMX Nationals in 2007, taking the gold at the World Extreme Games in 2014, being a rider on the Crusty Demons live shows and being a part of the Nitro Circus tours. If you ever see me at an event make sure you come say, hi.”

Scott Perry profile

“Hey guys, my name’s Scott Perry, I’m 25 and I’m from Newcastle NSW. I started riding a lot later than most people getting a YZ80 at the age of 14 and then a YZ250F at 19. I’ve been riding FMX for about four years now and love it. I’m fortunate enough to ride with Chucky Norris on the regular which has helped my riding a lot! Whether I’m on a demo or just seshing at the local spot I love hanging off my bike and can’t get enough of the feeling of progression and expression!”

“I started riding an old JR50 when I was four. I was lucky we moved out of town to a place near Truman Carroll’s. I got inspired to start jumping after watching Truman through the fence for a few years. After wrecking three peewee’s from jumping I finally got a real bike, a KX65. After lots of practice I’m now riding a YZ250 and starting to break into the scene by getting some shows under my belt like the AUSX-Open Pit Party, Albion Park Custom Bike Show – where I managed fourth place against some top riders-  and some other big events! Also, the past three City Coast Motorcycles Yatcon Civil FMX Jams have been real highlights. This is definitely something I have dreamed of doing! The plan for 2018 is to keep riding as many shows I can, while also training hard everyday and pushing my limits. Within the next few years my goal is to go international and show the world what I’ve got”.

“I started riding a JR50 when I was nearly four. I’m 15 years old and began riding freestyle seven years ago after getting a KX65. I now jump 60 feet on my YZ85 and I’m looking forward to riding a YZ250 in the next year or so. My highlights so far have been riding the Albion Park Custom Bike Show and the past three City Coast Motorcycles Yatcon Civil FMX Jams, with some of the best riders in Australia. I’m very fortunate to live near Truman Carroll’s compound and Truman, Rob Adelberg and Jacko Strong have been a big help in lots of ways. I’ve met lots of great people through riding dirt bikes and really enjoy it.”

“I’m 25-years-old and have been doing freestyle for nine years. I started riding on a PW80 that I got for my eighth birthday. I loved jumping straight away, which was evident to my parents after I snapped the swing arm off the PeeWee. Ever since then I’ve been hooked on riding. A few of my career highlights would be winning the ‘Mosh On Dirt’ Contest in Japan, competing at the Red Bull X Fighters in Madrid and landing my world’s first body varial during my run and winning the Silver medal at X-Pilots in Mexico City. My plans for the future with the help of City Coast Motorcycles are to keep progressing with my riding and most importantly to have fun!”
