Sweet new video from JRay Films of the Freestylemx.com tour featuring X Games Gold hoarder Matt Buyten, and hot young rippers James Carter and Bryce Hudson at the 2011 Bonita Fest near San Diego. The organizers of the fest were unsure of the impact FMX would have on it’s fans. Watch this video and you’ll know that afterwards there was no doubt whether or not there would be FMX in 2012!
The riders had a couple weeks off of the Boost Mobile Freestylemx.com Worldwide Tour presented by Monster Energy and came in with some new ideas on the bikes. Seven Time X Games Gold Medalist and Step Up World Record Height holder (37 feet) Matt Buyten was getting into Shaolin Flips and said that as his career comes towards it’s end- he wants to get into Freestyle at X Games next year. Could we see him get into all moto events and medal everyone? We’ll have to see-Mr. Awesome is motivated! James Carter took two weeks off the bike and started right back where he left-perfecting the KOD Flip. He did that then turned it into possibly the gnarliest Tsunami Flip I have ever seen and definitely the biggest on a 75 foot ramp to ramp setup. Even Bryce showed us his take on the Nac Flip getting the bike and body so twisted=it never looks like he will land it and he is still one of the few in the world doing Base Jumper to No Hander Landers.
The crowd went nuts all day long and I would say that Bonita was the coolest SoCal show we have ever done because there was no SoCal attitude-just happy and frindly people who really appreciated what the riders were doing! They will be back next year and so should you!
