It's called a panic rev for a reason

It’s no secret that there is a steep learning curve to freestyle motocross. It takes guts to jump an ATV or motorcycle that high and that far; let alone trying to let go of said machine in mid air. Well back when I first got into riding freestyle motocross there were plenty of ups and a lot of downs. This was one of those down days early in my freestyle journey, but thankfully I survived (mostly) unscathed and lived to ride another day. I still for the life of me don’t know why I didn’t panic rev and at least attempt to bring the front end up. Oh well, I’ll know for next time, right?

Growing up in Oregon, most of Seth's involvement in the powersports world was limited to what he saw in magazines and videos. 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.
