Hailing back to the early days of Freestyle Motocross – Mike Cinqmars was one of the most innovative and awe inspiring riders of the time and a true pioneer of the sport.
An idol to millions of fans across the world, and a regular on the Crusty Demons of Dirt and Terrafirma films (among many others) he always stood out for stepping up and going huge whilst having a style unique to himself!
We were lucky enough to find a classic motocross film documenting some of his riding and sadly, the crash that ultimately ended his career.
A huge loss for the sport and on a personal level for all those fans that had the pleasure of meeting him or watching him ride.
R.I.P Mike – Thank you for inspiring so many people.
