You don't get to be the best without a few bumps and bruises

X Games Gold Medalist Colten Moore is no stranger to injury; it’s pretty much par for the course in his profession. While few athletes have such a light hearted outlook on crashing, Moore’s good spirit and contagious personality are part of what makes him such a likable guy. Recently while on tour in Australia with Travis Pastrana’s Nitro Circus, the three-time time Snowmobile Freestyle Gold Medalist got a little off axis on a KOD backflip and took a digger. Now recovering in Australia, Moore posted this video to social media and laughed off his injuries. No doubt we’ll see him back in the saddle in no time.

When u wake up on Monday but just want to go back to sleep! ????? Feeling better these days so I can laugh about it now. Just a few broken bones & punctured lung. Hanging out in OZ till I recover. Thank you to everyone for the continued support. @rockstarenergy @flyracingusa @mystiklubes @kickeraudio

Following a brief stint in the corporate world, Seth took a flying leap (literally) and moved to California to pursue a career in freestyle motocross. Though short lived, the opportunity immersed him in the industry and is now a well-established off-road writer.
