Known as “The Godfather of Freestyle Motocross”, Mike Metzger is one of the world’s best freestyle motocrossers of his time. A California native, Metzger found his love for motocross and supercross at a young age and has been riding ever since. Winning the Freestyle and Big Air events at the X-Games in 2002, he proved himself to be a trailblazer in the sport by holding the world record for the biggest backflip ramp to ramp . After years of taking freestyle motocross to the next level, Metzger also had to overcome injuries, major surgeries, and just flat out pain. That is where AWESOME BALM has helped him to play hard, and recover fast.
