The Destroyer

As with many other top riders, Nate Adams came to FMX from motocross racing. Hailing from Phoenix, Arizona, Adams is today without a doubt one of the best FMX riders on the scene. Indeed, FMX legend Travis Pastrana once said that the Temecula resident is the “best FMX rider on this planet”. But he finished only second in 2011 after winning back-to-back titles in 2009 and 2011 and after missing the 2012 season wants to be on top again in 2013.

After a year full of injuries in 2008, Nate “The Destroyer” Adams burst back onto the scene in spectacular style in 2009 by dominating the second half of the Red Bull X-Fighters World Tour 2009, crowning his comeback season with a sensational performance at the season finale in London to win the overall title.

Despite spending most of his time in the air, Nate’s attitude is decidedly down to earth. His laid back and humor-filled approach to life does not let him take the pressures of his profession too seriously. He enjoys everything from video games to movies, art and drawing. However, for 2013 "The Destroyer" has only one thing in mind – getting back on the tour after not being able to ride a single stop in 2012 due to multiple injuries.
