The stunt riders of XDL talk about stunt riding today on an ESPN web series, Grantland Channel. Lots of good points are made about where stunting riding has come from and where it is going. The riders break down the XDL Championship series and how it's developing the sport into something that is judge-able. All the top riders like Apex, Chris McNeil, Dixon, Colton, and more talk about what drives them to push harder each year and keep evolving what is possible on two wheels.

The sun came out for the XDL Championship Series Finals in Portland, Oregon. Riders from around the world completed their season in front of eager Pacific Northwest fans who were happy to see the event come to their corner of the country for the first time.
Stunters really don't benefit from normal "motorcycle gear." We jump around on our bikes, use our rear brake non-stop and crash a lot more than most riders, so we need unique gear. We need the best protection possible, without sacrificing feel and movement. Here is a list of gloves stunt riders today are using in lots around the world.
XDL is coming to the Napa Speedway August 31 and September 1st and this time it's not just for the pro's!

In the shadow of the Queen Mary, her ghosts and demons already pissed off after Team Empire disturbed their eternal haunting, the parking lot was once again filled with the sounds of revlimiters from some of the best stunt riders in the country and world. The 2012 XDL Long Beach went down Friday and Saturday night, with Luke “Duke” Emmons taking first in individual freestyle after an intense battle on a rather challenging surface.
