Dirt Junkies started in 2014 with a one off amateur FMX contest at the Scarry Compound, just outside London. The aim of Dirt Junkies is to help build a platform in the UK for up and coming FMX riders, as well as the pro athletes, through hosting fun and progressive freestyle motocross events.
Each round is rider run at a private location on a safe, unique FMX course that features a mix of dirt and ramp hits to keep things interesting.
We do not currently have paying crowds at Dirt Junkies events, but full write up’s, photo’s and videos are available to view after each round and can always be found right here on dirtjunkies.com.
Mat Rebeaud on the 2014 R1 event:
“For me it was really cool to see what looked like a lot of friends just riding together and having fun, which is exactly the spirit of freestyle motocross, and definitely how it should be. I think for me I lost a bit of this when the competition side of things took over. It’s easy to become so focused on winning and training, you can forget about just riding with friends, so it was cool to see all the guys riding together and having so much fun today. Without amateur events like this we don’t have the sport, you know. Everyone needs a place to start. You can tell that in the finals all the guys were pushing their riding to the limits. It’s amazing how everyone had progressed a lot throughout the day.”
