With the exclusive access that Adamitis and his team has, every episode dives deeper into the motocross world, exposing the thankless labors of trainers and mechanics, as well as, family and friends serving as the foundation for these elite athletes.
The show follows their nomadic journeys on the road, on the track, under the tent, and in all weather to uncover the lives of men who compete for a living; hostile rivalries, brutal tracks, and a constant goal of mastering their bodyÃ¢Â€Â™s limitations. In this world, everything comes second to The Moto.

Ã¢Â€ÂœThis is exciting because it allows our viewers to spend more time with the characters of our sport. We are so indebted to the riders, their families and teams for allowing us into their lives. Without this access, we would never be able to showcase how brutal and rewarding motocross can be.”
