Hot Wheels Corkscrew Jump

The last time we saw anything from Hot Wheels, we witnessed Tanner Foust and Greg Tracy perform the Double Loop Dare at this year's X Games.

However, the toy company hasn't ceased its mission to recreate some of the stunts that we used to attempt with model cars in real life. Such as this - the corkscrew jump.

Unlike the Double Loop Dare - which was performed live - we're always slightly dubious about these performances. We're not saying that the corkscrew jump wasn't performed (after all, stuntmen nailed the exact same stunt back in 1974 during the James Bond film The Man With The Golden Gun), it's just that these Hot Wheels videos like to add a bit too much Hollywood.

Not that the Hot Wheels people seem that fussed - it's just a bit of fun. Demonstrated pretty aptly in the video below, when suddenly they need racing legend Mario Andretti in a jet-powered El Camino to help the car get up to speed...

Dirt Shark At The Monster Energy Cup

There was plenty more to this year's Monster Energy Cup than just motocross as Monster brought out all of their big name athletes to entertain the crowds: Ken Block, Vaughn Gittin Jr, Twitch and, of course, a bevy of Monster Energy Girls.

This great video from the guys at Dirt Shark gives us a great look behind the scenes at the MEC, plus a look at some of the wild action that was offer over the course of the day.

Metzeler Six Days Extreme tyres win World and British titles plus the notorious Erzberg Rally

Metzeler UK, Burton on Trent, 24 October 2012 – Metzeler continued their domination of the sport of Enduro both around the World and in the UK, with a champagne year on the ‘stages’ in 2012.

In the World Enduro Championship the Metzeler Six Days Extreme range of tyres proved themselves once again to be the stand out choice for successful competitors. In the Enduro 1 category (up to 125 cc 2-stroke or 250 cc 4-stroke machines) Antoine Meo dominated the class from fellow Metzeler runner Rodrig Thain.

The middle Enduro 2 class (250 cc 2-stroke or up to 450 cc 4-stroke) saw Metzeler rider Cristobal Guerrero gain the runner up slot but the final round saw local French Metzeler star Johnny Aubert take a double victory.

The big ‘thumpers’ of the Enduro 3 Open class were mastered by KTM factory rider Christophe Nambotin who won his title a round early, took the ‘Xtreme Test Award’ and the Mika Ahola “Brave One” Trophy- which rewards the fastest rider in the Enduro Tests

In the realm of Extreme Enduro young British Red Bull athlete Jonny Walker has really made a name for himself over the last couple of years. This season he won the prestigious and undeniably notorious Erzberg Hare Scramble in Austria. In a brutal battle of attrition, a total of 1,500 entrants are whittled down to a mere handful over the unforgiving cliffs and jagged rocks of the disused Erzberg mine. In these conditions Walker came out on top on his Six Days equipped factory KTM at it’s home event.

Closer to home, long time Metzeler rider David Knight powered his way to a unsurpassed tenth British Enduro Championship to cement his almost legendary status in this tough sport. Manx resident ‘Knighter’ is now 34 years old but again showed his young competitors controlled aggression and pace as he took a double victory in the final round in Hampshire.

Metzeler UK Marketing Manager Jim Worland commented, “It has been yet another truly dominant display for the class leading Metzeler Six Days Extreme tyres, which just keep on winning. These street legal Enduro tyres are now the rubber of choice whether riding in Extreme competitions, club events or simply out on the trails for fun. We congratulate David and Jonny as they wave the flag for Britain and Metzeler in both traditional and Extreme events.”

Pirelli took its World MX Championship tally to an incredible 58 titles as it won both MX1 and MX2 titles, whilst repeating the 'double' in the British series.

The dominant Italian marque also recently won the notoriously difficult Weston Beach Race to make 2012 a gold medal winning year.Earlier, KTM factory riders Antonio Cairoli and Jeffrey Herlings powered to MX1 and MX2 FIM World MX Championships ahead of schedule at the penultimate round to give Pirelli their 57th and 58th World Titles.In a talent filled British Championship, HM Plant KTM UK pilots Kevin Strijbos and Elliott Banks Browne repeated the feat to make it a KTM-Pirelli double-double. In the Weston Beach Race, Herlings took on the dunes to take victory in front of 65,000 fans who braved the elements in this long standing endurance event. Ken De Dycker made it two Pirelli runners on the podium with a fine third place ‘on the beach’.The legendary Pirelli Scorpion MX tyres again took on and excelled in deep mud, energy sapping sand, loamy dirt and hard pack conditions around the World’s circuits to make this another year to remember for the Italian tyre giant.

Pirelli UK Racing Manager Jason Griffiths commented, “This really has been a fantastic year for Pirelli off-road with the company taking double top in both World and British Championships. Congratulations to Roger Magee and the team for clinching the British Championship double. Jeffrey Herlings first appearance at the Weston Beach Race was really the icing on the cake for Pirelli UK’s motocross schedule, with British fans able to witness his now legendary sand riding technique!”

Best Moments From The 2012 Motocross World Championship

Through various reasons, this years' Supercross and AMA 450 Motocross Championships may not have offers the level of excitement and unpredictability that they promised at the start but the same cannot be said for the 2012 FIM Motocross World Championships.

Take a look at some of the best moments in this highlight video and remember the good times, the muddy times and glimpse a few Monster Girls for good measure too...

Knees Down With The Underbone Scooter 2012 Suzuki Indoprix

After Freestylextreme found these great pictures from the 2012 Suzuki Indoprix of a bunch of Indonesian guys giving it the full, knee-down beans on a bunch of skinny-wheeled 'peds we had to find out more...
If you haven't heard of 'underbone' bikes before, these little 125cc bikes are insanely popular in the Phillipines. Essentially, the are scooters with a tubular frame and plastic, non-structural panels to give them a racy look. With an average power output from 7 - 16 bhp, we've also read that underbones are statistically responsible for 90% of all road accidents in Indonesia.
So, what better for the basis of a racing series? That said, you need only search for a few videos for 'Suzuki Raider 150' to discover that these little bikes are capable of some seriously impressive speeds when subject to modification.
Unlike the 125cc MotoGP races, for some reason we find these images highly amusing.

Meet The Monster Energy Cup Girls

So... er, yeah. So we saw this video and we felt it was our duty to share it with you. After all, the $1 million prize Monster Energy Cup is only a couple of weeks away and...uhm...we wanted to remind you. Or something. *cough* Ah, what the heck. Enjoy the ladies.

Kye Forte, Breakfree (World Record BMX High Jump)

Kye Forte has recently smashed the world record for BMX High Jump in the latest #Breakfree film from Samsung and Jam. The previous record for the highest ramp jump on a bicycle had been 5.6 meters and Kye managed 6.4!As part of the record attempt, he was allowed 3 goes. He managed it within 2! Samsung helped Kye, a globetrotting BMX superstar, realise a life-long dream to jump his bike more than 6 metres in the air. Throughout the film, Kye and his brother Leo use Samsung Galaxy Notes to scout locations, plan, design and build a bespoke ramp before they shatter the previous world record by more than a meter. It’s the first time that Kye has worked with a tech brand but as he regularly uses the handset was happy to be use the technology to attempt the record. Kye is the creator of the Red Bull Empire of Dirt extreme BMX event currently housed at Alexandra Palace.

FSX Talk To X Fighters Winner Levi Sherwood!

Levi Sherwood picked up a spectacular and hard-fought win at the Red Bull X-Fighters round in Madrid at the weekend. We caught up with the New Zealand rider just before the event to talk X Games medals, Nitro Circus and collaboration clothing ranges...

FSX: We’re really excited for your new Levi Sherwood collaboration range with Etnies. We love the look of the Tees and your new Charter shoe! How much input did you have into your range?

Levi: A fair amount, I told the designers I wanted to tie in my collection to the graphic look and design of my bike so that’s why you see purple and arrange hits. We went back and forth and worked it out to final product.

FSX: Do you have any more designs in the pipeline? Anything exciting we can look forward to in future Etnies ranges?
Levi: For sure, I have a really clear direction on the shoe silhouettes I want to use and we are also working on something really cool to bring to the table graphic-wise that I think people will be as excited about as I am.
FSX: You’re currently sitting in second for this year’s Red Bull X-Fighters competition. Things started brilliantly in Dubai but things didn’t quite work out so well at Glen Helen. How do you feel about the next round in Madrid?

Levi: I think Madrid will suit my style as it will be important to bring big tricks and get the crowd pumped up from the get go.
FSX: Dubai marked your third victory at a Red Bull X-Fighters event. You’re one of the youngest competitors and still just a few years into your career. What goals does a guy set himself that has achieved so much so soon?

Levi: I’m really focused on the Red Bull X Fighters Series, I’ve had some ups and downs early on and this year I want to play it smart and see the series all the way through to the end.

FSX: We’d never suggest that riders should take any unnecessary risks but were you disappointed that you didn’t get the chance to compete at the round of X Fighters in Turkey?
Levi: It really was disappointing for us as riders to not be able to put a show on for the fans and it was also disappointing for the people that worked so hard to make the event happen but in the end the decision that was made was the right one I think and it was really in the interest of rider safety.

FSX: Your accident at the practice of Nitro Circus in Las Vegas last year put you out of action for most of the 2011 competition season. Although it must have been hugely disappointing, it clearly hasn’t done anything to diminish your skill. Have your injuries led to any long-term effects or adjustments to your riding style?

Levi: I think most professional athletes are managing or playing/riding around an injury at most times but luckily so far (touch wood) I haven’t had to make any what I feel are significant adjustments to my riding style due to injury.

How did you end up hooking up with the Nitro Circus crew in the first place? Do you plan do anything more with them in the future?

Levi: They invited me for the New Zealand round and I think it was at Travis’s request; it was cool to spend time with him and Lyn-Z on the tour.

FSX: Congratulations on picking up another X Games silver medal, by the way! Your run was sick! How confident were you on the run up to the games?

Levi: I felt pretty good going in knowing that I had solid trick list and a new trick and the course having limited options due to the size of the venue would put the most pressure to deliver the goods in the air so that’s what I focused on.

FSX: That first ramp in the Moto X Freestyle arena looked terrifying! How did you find the course? Were you disappointed to find Taka had just pipped you at the post?

Levi: It did look a bit intimidating but when you think about it it’s really just a normal jump that is elevated, the ramp and the landings are the same as always just higher up in the air.

FSX: Good luck for the rest of the X Fighters and we hope to see you next year at X Games with a gold medal!
Levi: Thanks, I appreciate that, I hope so too! I’ll just do my best and see how it all works out.

Levi's etnies Kontra shoe is in stock and available now!

FMX Trick List - Bar Tricks

Shoalin Bar Hop 



Dead Body

Stale Fish

The freestyle motocross, bar hop trick is a relatively easy trick to learn. It also serves as the base move for other, more advanced tricks, some riders get on well with bar tricks, some then tend to shy away from them depending on the learning experience of the bar tricks. It can be very easy with the bar tricks to get caught up with the feet and end a pile on the floor!  Once a rider has mastered the basic Bar Hop of getting the legs through the bars, and when the bar Hop Has been perfected and stretched out , variations can then follow such as the Shoalin Bar Hop and then the super stretched out Dead Body. Also once you`ve got a Bar Hop dialled there is also the Mcmetz , where a rider will let go of both hands on the handle bars so the feet can be brought back around on to the bike and the rider then grabbing back on to the handle bars. Stale Fish a kind of wrapping the legs around one the arms on the bars .Sterilizer which if you can do bar hop is basically landing the bike in the bar hop position being sat on the handle bars when landing.A rider can also work on putting the feet on to the top of the bars and then work on the Cordova where a rider places the feet on to the bars and then arches the body back .The stripper is a kind of mixture of the bar hop and Cordova , where in the Cordova position a rider puts one foot through the bars.
