One Year Later
It has been a year since the Freestyle Motocross (FMX) world lost the renowned talent, Jeremy Lusk. After a tragic crash in a competition in Costa Rica, Lusk succumbed to his injuries mere days later.
As a freestyle motocross athlete, Lusk seemed to just be coming into the pinnacle of his career. He was a gold medalist for freestyle motocross in the 2008 X-games competition as well as bringing home the silver medal for ‘Best Trick.' He also took away two gold medals in X-Games Mexico, a bronze medal for the 2008 Dew Tour, and was a major competitor on an international level.
He was by far a top rider in a sport that requires dedication, precision, and meticulous training. It's a sport inherent with danger and while there are others who have suffered serious injuries, Lusk was the first to befall fatal consequences.
People the world over have praised Lusk's talent and personality. As his team Metal Mulisha put it, he will always be "on the ride of his life."
In honor of Jeremy Lusk's memory, the AFMXA encouraged everyone to participate in a moment of silence yesterday on February 9th, at 11am PST. Fuel TV will also air a special tribute on the Daily Habit.
