The MXsteeze #8 with Aussie Red Bull X-Fighters Winner Clinton Moore!
Clinton Moore grew up on a small farm in Bundaberg, a town located on the east coast of Australia. Like most of the other famous riders from Down Under, the 25-year-old started riding a dirtbike when he was a little kid, using the acres of terrain around the farm to develop his bike skills before finally deciding that his ultimate goal would be to become a pro FMX rider. Moore originally got into the sport through his big sister's boyfriend, who lent him a few classic freestyle motocross DVDs. When he turned 15 years old, he decided to go for the backflip – after all, he already had all other tricks dialed in. His first attempt didn't quite work out, and an under-rotated flip would end up sending the teenager to the hospital with two broken arms. So what did Clinton do? He came back a few months later and nailed it.
The young Aussie's profession - a qualified excavator driver - seems to be the perfect match for his love for FMX. With a six-acre compound including a foam pit, a few ramps, and dirt kickers to execute well old tricks and learn new ones, Clinton certainly has a lot of opportunities to practice his dirt-pushing skills. Travelling the world on tour's with such events as Red Bull X-Fighters, X Games and Nitro Circus Live, he is quickly counting up his Qantas Frequent Flyer points and starting to become a household name.
