Caroline Buchanan 2016 BMX World Championship | #FISTARMY

By BMX

Counting down the days to the Olympic games Caroline Buchanan has just claimed the elite women’s time trial world title and placed second in the main event at the UCI BMX World Championships!

The world championships have been a key Olympic selection chance for the Aussies and with a time trial world title and a second place to her name, Buchanan is now front and centre for a ticket to the Olympic Games in Rio.

We’re so proud of Caroline’s achievements leading up to the Olympic games, can’t wait to cheer her on in Rio! Be sure to check out her video above taking out the Elite woman’s time trial, man that track looks gnarly.

We are stoked to see Robbie back on a dirt bike! After being off his bike for months due to invasive knee surgery, Robbie gets the chance to hit the track with his little boys and catch some air.

Robbie Maddison Rehab Progress | #FISTARMY

By MX

Robbie Maddison begins training after an invasive knee operation.

After surgery on Robbie’s left knee 6 months ago he’s now back to training taking Robbie Maddison to the next level and doing things that have never been done before!
We thought riding a wave on a dirt bike was already insane next level stuff so can’t wait to see what’s install next. #FISTARMY

Taka Higashino – Cali Rollin’ in Cali | #FISTARMY

By MX

Whilst out in Cali earlier this year I was lucky enough to tee up a morning session with Taka Higashino to shoot some photo & video content.

We were blessed with prime FMX conditions, not a breath of wind insight and the sun was out in force for the morning session at Ronnie Faisst’s compound in Murrieta. Taka is a mad man and it was really cool to see how he rides a session, each rider is different in the way they tackle their daily sessions. It’s almost an art in how each rider achieves trick perfection.

Taka sure didn’t hold back, throwing huge tricks one after another, smooth and extended every time! With the conditions being perfect we were really able to make the most of the opportunity and gathered a bunch of real quality photo and video content.

It’s not everyday you get to shoot one of the best Freestyle riders in the world, especially one as cool and down to earth as Taka, his broken English is bad ass and makes for a good laugh! It was a pleasure shooting whilst out in Cali, definitely a highlight of the trip!

Speak soon! BT

Matt Phillips | Transmoto Exclusive Interview

By MX

Never one to beat around the bush, Australia’s Matt Phillips offers a candid insight into his new Sherco deal and the prospect of winning a third world enduro title.

Since his debut in the Enduro World Championship (EWC) in 2013 at the tender age of 19, Matt Phillips has won two world titles and came very close to winning a third in 2015. That makes him Australia’s most successful enduro pilot in the past decade, and one of this country’s most successful motorcycle exports of all time. And he’s still just 22 years of age.

Late last year, in a move that shocked many, Matt Phillips turned his back on the powerhouse Factory KTM Enduro team, and signed with the Italian guys he worked with in 2013 for his maiden EWC title. As we announced a few months ago, the young Aussie will race a Sherco 450 in the 2016 EWC – now re-branded as the “EnduroGP” – with Fabrizio Azzalin’s CH Racing outfit.

“MATT PHILLIPS IS AUSTRALIA’S MOST SUCCESSFUL ENDURO PILOT IN THE PAST DECADE, AND ONE OF THIS COUNTRY’S MOST SUCCESSFUL MOTORCYCLE EXPORTS OF ALL TIME. AND HE’S STILL JUST 22.”

We’re super pumped to watch Matt wax everyone in the world enduro this year!
