Hailing from Phoenix, Arizona, Nate Adams stumbled upon freestyle motocross as many others do, from motocross racing. Switching over to freestyle, Nate instantly found success in IFMA events and after only one year as a pro he was crowned the World Freestyle Motocross Champion in 2002. Today, Nate Adams has become one of the best freestyle motocross riders in the world.

Since achieving the 2002 World Freestyle Motocross Title, Nate has focused his aim on becoming the best freestyler in the world. Despite winning numerous events during his early professional years, there was one title that Adams couldn’t seem to conquer: the illustrious X Games Gold. Finally in 2004, Adams took home the one title that had eluded him and joined the freestyle elite.

With his 2004 X Games Gold medal under his belt, Adams continued to take on the competition headfirst. He has claimed multiple titles and podium finishes in competitions including AST Dew Tour, Red Bull X Fighters, and securing double gold medals at the 2011 X Games in FMX and Speed & Style. Nate’s is on a level of his own. His high level of technicality and difficulty with his tricks gives him the edge over nearly any other competing athlete. Nate has continued to maintain the high standard he sets for himself with a gold medal and three bronze medals in the 2013 International X Games stops as well as snagging another gold medal in 2015. 

Nate has also graced the covers of numerous industry magazines as well as being a featured athlete in ESPN X Games and NBC Dew Tour commercials. Nate Adams is the only competitor to beat Travis Pastrana in a freestyle motocross competition and is also the creator and owner of Deft Gloves.
