Masters of Dirt - this name has become synonymous with extreme sports as well as wild and crazy attitudes to sending massive jumps. The Masters of Dirt plays host to the place where some of the best athletes can showcase their skills and tricks to wider audiences. Masters of Dirt provides a unique backdrop where disciplines which usually don't meet each other clash together under one roof. Freestyle motocross and freestyle mountain biking collide in one massive show of spectacular tricks, massive jumps and epic air. The rules are basically the same - jump a gap and perform the best trick you can. Sounds simple, but is it really as easy as that?
There are many obvious technical differences, but maybe there are some similarities between those two sports – MTB surely feeds off the sheer size and scope of FMX. But what exactly do mountain bikers take from motocross? Do FMX riders look our way, too? Are they influenced by the modern mountain biker?
Super-grippy tyres and big rotors are the best way to stop those 115kg // 250 lbs beasts.
