Empire athlete, Joel Figueroa is getting ready to hit the XDL circuit and compete with some of the world's top stunt riders. Here's a peek into his stunt life and how he prepares to go from amateur to pro.
Why Isn’t Sportbike Freestyle in the X-Games?
Monster Energy presents 72 Hours with Empire. That's right TEAM EMPIRE the brain child of Nick Apex, Ernie Vigil and their team of talented stuntriding killers from around the world. Lots of respect to the team for not only their well earned success, but pulling off a production of epic porportion!
That's a lot of flying bikes, people and cars - the full clip is coming July 2nd - who is STOKED!!! Team Empire + Monster Energy!
Shin breaking in the tires on his new stunt piece. You can literally SEE the power behind that KTM, sick looking bike.
Shin Kinoshita, a top rider in the XDL Championship Series and one of Japan's leading stunters released pictures of his new KTM RC8 stunt bike which he will surely be redefining the impossible on this year. Shin put out a KTM teaser clip a few weeks back and we are now anxiously waiting for the feature-length video on his KTM fleet.
Shin has got quite the crowd checking out his stunts on an all near KTM Duke 125. We can't think of anyone to do the bike better justice.
