MEET THE MAN BEHIND
YOUR FMX SET UP
Retired freestyle motocross athlete Dennis Saulnier knows a bit about dirtbikes. Before freestyle, he raced motocross competitively and used his passion for bikes to fuel his success. When the freestyle moto scene began, Dennis was there and jumped in with both feet. When Carey Hart landed the first backflip on a 250cc in 2000, Dennis was right on his heels, landing backflips and other gnarly tricks – back in the day before backflip tricks were a necessity in competition. As the sport has evolved, the risks have grown tremendously, and recently Dennis has retired from the sport – but not entirely. Moving his focus from performing freestyle moto to encouraging and helping others grow within the sport, Dennis now centres his attention on supporting his fellow FMX riders the best way he knows how – building ramps.
