On the Pipe

Mike Mason is one of those guys who simply can’t picture his life without dirtbikes. As an 11-year-old his dad, an avid rider himself, got Mason a bike, and he hasn’t stopped riding since.

The 31-year-old from Nevada is a machine in MX and slowly developing a reputation as a free riding legend. After a couple of years on the Arenacross circuit, Mason decided to quit racing in 2004 and focus on his FMX and free riding skills with his buddy Dustin Miller, who already had his own large FMX park complete with foam pit. Visiting the nearby FMX park of his friend for practice was much more chilled out than traveling long distances to the next MX/SX track, and Mike’s skills improved so fast that he finished third overall on the AST Dew Tour as well as winning a bronze medal at the 2005 X-Games.

In 2011, Mason finished 13th in the Red Bull X-Fighters World Tour, rounding off the season with a strong 4th place in Sydney. After a break in 2012, the American will be looking to improve on his results from 2011 and keep the crowds rocking with his breathtaking Rock Solids in case he is able to grab a wildcard. If Speed & Style makes a return to Red Bull X-Fighters, Mason should be the man to invite. The current Gold Medal holder has simply mad riding skills, can do it all and not many can beat his unique style in a direct battle.
