Josh Sheehan: 5 legendary FMX tricks

On March 31, with the support of the Moscow Department of Sports and Tourism, the 11th International Extreme Sports Festival Breakthrough - 2018 took place. The best world and Russian riders met at the Olympic arena. One of the shows that was shown to young viewers during the festival was the Moto therapy program.

Mototherapy - is an international program to support people with disabilities. The guys, for whom Moto therapy is carried out, watch the performance not in the crowd, but near the arena. After the show, the audience has the opportunity to chat with the riders and ride motorcycles with them. In Russia, this action has been taking place since 2014.

We managed to meet and talk with the revolutionary in freestyle, Australian athlete, athlete of the Monster Energy team Josh Sheehan, right after he performed several of his tricks and talked to children as part of the Moto Therapy show.

Josh Sheehan: Riding a motorcycle helps relieve stress. When you drive along the track and have to do tricks, you forget about everything around. You can clear your mind, relax. We want to convey this feeling to everyone who participates in the show.

The average height that a motorcyclist usually achieves in his ski jumping is 15 meters. That is why FMX is a complex system of tricks that require painstaking preparation and skill. In our selection, we have collected 5 of the best tricks performed by Josh Sheehan , each of which is the result of serious physical and psychological work on oneself.

Triple Backflip

Incredibly difficult trick. Triple spin - somersault.

Josh Sheehan : For freestyle you have to be very strong mentally. There are a lot of things that are dangerous and scary, for example, back flips. You need to be calm despite the pressure, even if something goes wrong. Fear and understanding of risks are important, but it is even more important to keep them under control so that they do not overtake you.
