The two main types of freestyle events are:
- Big Air (also known as Best Trick), in which each rider gets two jumps — usually covering more than 75 ft (22.8m) — from a dirt-covered ramp. A panel of judges evaluates the style, trick difficulty, and originality and produces a score on a 100-point scale. Each rider’s highest single jump score is compared; top score wins.
- Freestyle motocross, the older of the two events, in which riders perform two routines, each 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 (.4 to .8 hectares). Like Big Air, a panel of judges assigns each contestant a score based on a 100-point scale, looking for difficult tricks and variations over jumps.
Notable freestyle motocross events include Red Bull X-Fighters, NIGHT of the JUMPs, the X Games, Gravity Games, Big-X, Moto-X Freestyle National Championship, and Dew Action Sports Tour. Freeriding is the original form of freestyle motocross which started in the hills of southern California; due to professional racers such as Jeremy McGrath and Phil Lawrence “play riding” in the hills of Reche Canyon. It has no structure and is traditionally done on public land. Riders for natural jumps and drop-offs to execute their tricks on. Some free riders prefer to jump on sand dunes. In many ways, freeriding requires more skill and mental ability. Notable freeriding locations include Ocotillo Wells and Glamis Dunes in California, Beaumont, California, and Caineville, Utah.
My youngest son Loved FMX- but I cannot tell you how much, I did not love watching him, not that he was not good at it, he absolutely was great at it, and as a kid once myself I know better than to discourage, my kids from doing whatever they choose, and being supportive of it, but apparently my expressions everyone else was seeing each time he jumped 70ft in the air must have been horrifying by the hugs and he will be okay comments I got- here is some footage of my son check it out! He followed Monster trucks one year, put a show on in Ogden On the 4th of July, at the Loren Farr Park In Ogden, Utah as well as doing free shows for Evanston Wyoming, (Ramps, landings every bit of it he and his Dad built themselves!) His brother my oldest son would do the announcing for him and play the music these 2 kids are pretty talented, love them both check it!
Love you Baby from Mom- I made this video of my son and I will miss him very much!
