We were able to catch up with moto-ripper and SCS Unlimited athlete Brody Wilson for a quick update on what he has been up to and from our standpoint he has just been crushing it.
Hi all! So, 2011 was a good year for me. I rode the entire Nuclear Cowboyz tour all winter. Most of the shows were sold out or close to sold out which was great. I was pumped to be a part of it. Right after that I went to Europe for the Extreme Freestylers events in Paris and Holland. I spent a week at each stop and had a lot of fun while riding there! I also did the Sony Ericsson FMX comp in Slovakia. Took 3rd at that and got to explore Bratislavia. It was a really cool city, I'd like to make it back there. All in all, Europe was an amazing trip.
After my Europe trip, I went back home to Massachusetts to practice, work on my course and spend a lot of time in the foam pit. While there, I rode in some of the Boost Mobile FMX tour events. After that I was able to get a few weeks of vacation in. I made it up to Montana and chilled at Glacier National Park for a week, went and hung out at X-games and then capped it off with a week of house boating on Lake Powell in Utah/Arizona. It felt good to chill for a bit after so much riding, traveling and training.
At the end of the summer, I started back traveling and doing shows. I rode at a drift car event in Norway, did a demo at the Montreal Supercross, rode a show in Puerto Rico for Unit then jumped at a Red Bull event in Florida that Ronnie Renner help put on. All of those went awesome. It was my first time in Norway and Puerto Rico and I got to do some exploring in both and really enjoyed it! From Florida I drove out to California and got settled back in at our house out here. I rode and practiced a bunch getting ready for 2012 and the upcoming Nuclear Cowboyz tour.
The Tour is about halfway complete. All the stops have gone really well. The crowds have been great and everyone has been having fun riding and hanging out on the tour again. We have 5 stops left right now, the last one being in Mexico City on April 21-22. Following that I'll be in Las Vegas for the Supercross and doing autograph signings to help promote the Nuclear Cowboyz tour. The two weekends after the SX I'll be in Europe competing at the IFMXF Night of the Jumps events in Germany and Russia. I'm looking forward to those, it's been a couple years since I've ridden them and they are a lot of fun!
As soon as those are done I'll be back in Massachusetts and making good use of the foam pit. I'm really trying to learn some new stuff this year and take my career to another level!
That is about it for now. 'Til next time!
