Exactly what would make me think a freestyle video packed full of both high flying quads, UTV’s and yes, even dirt bikes might be something of interest to ATV Rider Magazine readers. Well I’ve got an answer for that. Aside from the obvious, you know, how we four-wheeled off-road fanatics are drawn with intensity towards adrenaline, there’s actually some extra depth as to why.
All of the years I attended the High Lifter Mud Nationals, (both Texas & East Coast), one of the hottest and most anticipated events of the week (aside from the sand pits & late nights on the high line), was by far the freestyle show put on by the Bomb Squad and various freestyle high altitude acrobats such as Caleb Moore! I watched mudders’ and off-road enthusiasts from all over the United States, even the world fall in love with Caleb and his amazing highflying acrobatic abilities and showmanship! But that’s just the beginning as he went on to snatch our attention winning Winter X Game medals for a handful of years with brother Colton Moore on a snowmobile and they were not granted instant respect either. And since his passing a little over a year ago, Colton shocked us all with an amazingly executed performance this year at the 2014 Winter X Games, a performance dedicated to solely Caleb.
I think maybe my point will be made here, we all loved Caleb and got to watch his brother Colton grow from amateur freestyle rider at the Mud Nationals to a Gold Medal winning athlete at the Winter X-Games. Well this video was dedicated to Caleb and in my opinion, that’s good enough reason to grab a copy and kick back to some smooth off-road Butter. By the way, that's just one of a plethora of reasons this movie is a must see. For one, it’s a pretty sweet movie that’ll blow your mind at just how far the boundaries of what many believed years ago was possible has been pushed. Second, it’s been quite a few years since we’ve seen a well produced release of it’s type with creative videography, unique editing and amazing scenery. But just in case you need a little extra convincing, it's packed with amazing ride clips of talents such as "The Digger" Doug Gust, Nuclear Cowboyz' Jon Guetter, who landed the first ATV back flip, Colton Moore and even some pretty rad UTV/SXS clips. To me, it’s every bit worth the purchase or even a few days rental. Either way, bet you’d watch it more than once.
