One of the younger FMX riders you'll see on the Dew Tour, Adam Jones first got on a motorcycle at age 10 when his parents bought him a 1980 kx 80. His first venture into FMX wasn't until he was 17, but what he lacks in experience, he more than makes up for in talent.
After missing the first half of the 2004 season with an injury, Jones returned in time for the X Games and captured the bronze medal in the freestyle contest. The next year, he finished fifth in the competition and managed a fourth-place showing in the Dew Cup’s year-end rankings.
Determined to be the best, Jones took home the gold medal in freestyle at the 2007 X Games. He also made the podium in the Best Trick contest, earning a silver medal with his backflip strip. On the 2007 Dew Tour, Jones was the only rider to beat Nate Adams, taking the title at the Vans Invitational. He closed out the season in second place in the year-end rankings, finally capturing the Dew Cup in 2008 by winning the final two events of the season to claim the coveted year-long trophy.
This fierce competitor is pulling backflips all the time. Maybe his secret of success is favorite food: the In-n-Out burger. Hey, whatever works.
