Nate Adams        

Motocross Rider and Extreme Sports Athlete

In 2000 he decided to give a try at riding Freestyle Motocross and by 2001 IFMA named him Rookie of the Year.  By 2002, Nate was crowned the IFMA World Freestyle Motocross Champion.

Adams joined the roster of Target sponsored athletes in 2002 and displays the bullseye on his helmet during competitions.  He also represents Target at exhibitions, community events and special store programs.

Building on his success, Nate focused on becoming the best freestyler in the world.  In 2003, he had his first win at the Gravity Games.  2004 brought the year Nate had been dreaming of, he achieved his goal of winning the X Games gold medal in the Freestyle Moto X event as well as bringing home the Gold at Gravity Games and 1st Place at the LG Action Sports FMX World Championships.  Adams continued to claim titles in 2005 at events such as the Gravity Games, LG Action Sports World Championships and the Redbull X-Fighters.

Nate is always pushing the limits of Freestyle Motocross by inventing new tricks and pushing himself to go bigger at every event. One of the most difficult tricks in any Freestyle Motocross rider’s repertoire is the back flip.  Adams raised the bar beyond the standard back flip, and can complete more variations of the trick than any other athlete competing.  Nate is the only athlete to consistently throw a backflip 360 in his routine and at the 2004 Vans Triple Crown event in Minnesota, he became the first rider to pull off a backflip to no-handed lander in competition.
