In a sport like Moto X, enthusiasm is key. It takes enthusiasm to emerge from a tiny Australian outpost like Baxter, Victoria (population: 1,873) and win several State and National Supercross titles. It takes enthusiasm to make the switch from Supercross to Freestyle on a whim, especially when you should be home nursing your broken leg.
