Australian rider Jackson Strong fits perfectly into the matrix we know from Down Under. Like Robbie Maddison, Blake Williams and Cameron Sinclair, the 18 year old grew up in a small remote town and made a big name for himself on the international freestyle motocross scene through his gnarly tricks and hardcore style.
Strong has the typical Aussie larrikin and is tough as nails when it comes to pulling big stuff on the bike. Recently he became the first rider in the world to land an 85-foot Frontflip to dirt. Indeed, it was riding from the tender age of 14 that made him a star in his native Australia, but since Brian Deegan called him up to become a part of the notorious Metal Mulisha Army he has had the fire in his belly to step it up a level and become a major player on the international FMX scene. With a ticket to the upcoming X-Games event and a Wildcard for the Red Bull X-Fighters Event in Spain, he is well on his way to achieving that goal. Let’s see who can stop him.
