    TMXS- 33 Justin Buckelew (Motocross Coach)

    My guest today is Justin Buckelew, he was a minibike sensation who had a successful amateur career and landed a factory ride for the infamous Yamaha of Troy team in the early 2000’s. He later said a string of injuries put him to far behind and a budding career as a coach began to take shape and with a growing list of clientele, he decided it was time to retire and raise his family. We also talked shop about riding those factory race bikes, mental strategy stuff like visualization, SX this season and some other cool stuff.

    TMXS- 32 Jimmy Button (WMG Agent)

    Jimmy Button is my guest today on the podcast show, most of you listening know his story already but for those of you who might not, Jimmy was a super successful factory rider, who had a career ending injury and then moved onto being an agent, now at Wasserman Media Group. We talked a little bit about how he started and what the beginning days were like, compared to now and a lot about social media and how its impacted the sport and the way deals are done, who they’re done with and a bunch of other cool stuff I didn’t know. We also chopped it up about SX, were two weeks out and I couldn’t be more stoked. Hope you enjoy this episode of the podcast, make sure to leave a rating and a comment and share it with friends.

    TMXS- 31 Jimmy Hill (FMX Residency at the Luxor Hotel)

    On this episode of the podcast, I talk to Jimmy Hill about what he's been up to, his new residency at the Luxor hotel, his Shift campaign from 2019 and beyond, plus a whole bunch of other cool stuff. Jimmy is one of the most creative, funny, and all around likable riders in the sport. I love catching up with him and always look forward to what he's creating next, like his hilarious spoof video on X Games Real Moto.

    TMXS- 30 Rich Van Every (Photographer, Activist, Spirituality)

    On this episode I talk to OG pioneer photographer Rich Van Every. He was an intrigual part of FMX back in the day, and his images helped create the vision for all us riders. He’s since moved on to non moto related projects and is lending his helping hand volunteering with events like Burning Man as well as getting involved with some activism work, helping spread awareness with 5G, the nuclear power plant waist build up that’s happening among some other passion projects he has. I really enjoyed talking to him about Burning Man and finding out how suspect some of this 5G technology is.

    TMXS- 29 Adam Barker (M80 on Fuel TV)

    TMXS- 29 Adam Barker (M80 on Fuel TV)

    On this episode of the podcast, my long time good friend, Adam Barker comes on to talk about Fuel TV’s M80 series, which he created and produced for six seasons. I met Adam way back in his Fresno Smooth days when he came out to Reche Canyon to film with Jeff Emig and the Albrecht’s. Since then, we filmed every year for some project Adam had or a vision I was trying to bring to life. We both were in our prime, from starting out to becoming a veteran in our own rights. We talked a lot about his time working for Fuel TV on M80, some of the cool riders he witnessed come up and win gold medals at X Games, like Jeremy Lusk, who came from digging ditches literally to winning the premier event in our sport, X Games. Sadly Jeremy passed shortly after when a seat grab flip went wrong in Costa Rica. Unbeknownst to me, Adam shared a really cool story about Lusk and how he called out three main goals he had and how Adam was at each of those milestone moments to accomplish them.

    TMXS- 28 Clifford Adoptante (X Games Legend The Flyin Hawaiian)

    TMXS- 28 Clifford Adoptante (X Games Legend The Flyin Hawaiian)

    On this episode of the podcast, the man, the myth, the legend himself, Clifford Adoptante comes on the podcast to talk about riding FMX and how his career coming to an end caused a serious identity crisis that ultimately led to him spiraling out of control, abusing drugs and alcohol. Finally fed up with it all, good friend Colin Morrison set him up with a rehab facility to begin his new journey of sobriety. Now he's 90 days sober and content with where he's at in his new life and enjoying being patient, and looking forward to putting his house back together. He's got a ton of energy and someone I looked up to in the freestyle motocross game when I was starting out.

Awesome!

Punk Rock Parsons was one of the smoothest fmx riders, and is an all around cool guy. The podcast he’s got going here is well put together and loose. It’s awesome gaining perspective and insight from him and the guys he speaks with. 10/10, would recommend to a friend!

This needed to happen

Doug is a great guy. He’s also a pioneer in the motocross and freestyle motocross industry. Add in the sports psychology knowledge and Doug is the perfect candidate for a platform like this.
