The Nuclear Cowboyz 2013 show has the greatest cast of freestyle motocross, trials and quad riders ever assembled, including recent X Games 2012 medalists Ronnie Faisst, Taka Higashino, Mike Mason, Javier Villegas and Winter X Games gold and silver medalist Colten Moore. The tour also includes former gold medalists Matt Buyten and Adam Jones as well as award-winning freestylers Geoff Aaron, Wes Agee, Nick Dunne, Julian Dusseau, Jimmy Fitzpatrick, Derek Garland, Marco Picado, Brody Wilson and Keith Wineland in this action-packed freestyle performance of pure danger and raw combat.
I was given tickets to review the show but before we went, I thought I would check out the videos. Once I saw them, I immediately knew my family & I were going to have lots of fun. The Nuclear Cowboyz didn't disappoint at all! Even before the show started, the arena was full of energy with families all around. I thought if it was like that before the show, I couldn't imagine the energy during the show. Once everyone settled in & the show started, all I heard were "ooohs" & the occasional "That was siiiickkk!" from the boys in front of me.
I'm afraid of heights & when I saw them come out & do their tricks midair, my heart stopped for them but once I saw how each trick was done effortlessly, I knew these guys knew what they were doing & all my anxiety was replaced with adrenaline. I looked over to my 4 year old son who thought it was the real life "Mario Kart" – he was memorized. We all were in absolute awe.
Here are some of the pictures that we were able to capture during Sunday's show:
There was actually A LOT more. I'm usually the photographer but my husband took the pictures this time & he went crazy & took close to 200 pictures! They all look amazing but I didn't want to slow down this post by being picture heavy. Each one came out great though but it's nothing compared to seeing it in person.
Check out this video that gives you a look into Nuclear Cowboyz rehearsals this year and what the show is all about!
