Mystery man Kyle Loza, winner of three X Games Gold Medals for Best Trick has promised to turn it on in his usual style and put as much pressure as possible on current X Games Best Trick Gold Medallist Jackson Strong.

The man who pioneered front-flipping a motorcycle, Australia’s Jacko has said he will unveil a never before seen jump to the world's media - the "Bullet Proof Tiger".

“I'm starting to get chills running down my spine thinking about what the ‘Best trick’ category is going to hold,” Strong said.

“I wanted to bring something new to the table so stay tuned - the ‘Bullet Proof Tiger’ will be out of the bag soon,” Strong concluded.

The Crusty Demons Cup has taken place over the four days of the 2012 Formula 1™ Qantas Australian Grand Prix and culminates in a Sunday night finale where eight riders will go head-to-head in a massive FMX battle for Best Trick, Best Whip and Best Combo.


The Crusty Demons are a group of daredevil freestyle motorcyclists from around the world but predominantly the USA, Australia, Europe, New Zealand and Japan.

Considered pioneers of freestyle motocross (FMX), the Crusty Demons legend began in 1994 in the USA thanks to filmmakers Jon Freeman and Dana Nicholson. They showcased a “behind the scenes” exposé of the lifestyle of an American pro motocross rider in action, featuring 145 ft plus distance jumps, 45 ft high airborne jumps over sand dunes, mountains, houses, buses and anything else secure and steep enough to hold the weight of bike and rider. The end result was Fleshwound Films and the first video: “The Crusty Demons of Dirt.”

Mind blowing tricks and world record jumps have made the Crusty Demons a household name and now the Crusty DVD’s are among the biggest selling action sports titles of all time.

Today, the Crusty Demons brand extends across a range of licensed products including DVD’s, movies, apparel, bedding, magazines, digital platforms and various consumer products.
