Thanks to an emphatic win in his first ever X Games USA appearance this year, Cam Sinclair has been nominated for the TransWorld Motocross Magazine ‘Breakout FMXer of the Year’ Award.
An invite-only event will house professional motocross riders and members of the motocross industry to celebrate this year’s top motocross athletes and honor the many accomplishments they’ve achieved throughout the year. It will be held on October 7, 2010, at The Grove of Anaheim in Southern California, USA. “To be nominated for this award is fantastic. I have worked really hard this year and especially towards winning at X Games; to be considered among such amazing riders is the icing on the cake!” Cam Sinclair said.
The TransWorld Motocross Awards are chosen and voted on by a panel including TransWorld Motocross editors and members of the AFMXA board. In addition to five major athlete awards, there will be a Readers’ Choice Award, voted on by the readers of TransWorld Motocross, a Rockstar Energy Drink Lifetime Achievement Award, and the TransWorld Motocross Legend Award. Sinclair has also been nominated for the TransWorld Motocross ‘Readers Choice’ Award, whereby fans and followers of motocross can vote by clicking on the link below:
The book ‘Parenting Freak Ability’ looks at Motocross Superstar, Cam Sinclair. And, the fact that he nearly died last year, and came back to win Gold at the X Games, 2010. Also, it looks at how Brad Smith has pioneered Mini Superbikes in Australia.

Here is an excerpt of the book with Cams dad, Ken Sinclair, telling the story of Cam growing up:
“One time we had just built a new feature, a 100ft tabletop. Afterwards I was inside and heard him riding the track. You get used to the pattern of gear changes and you know how fast they should be going on each part of the track. Coming out of one of the corners I heard him kick it into third gear when it should have been in second. I though “Bloody hell, he’s going to do it!” and looked out the window just as he hit the triple (series of jumps) and I could see the tree tops in the back ground. He landed it. He just couldn’t help himself he had to do it. Just as an indication of the jump’s difficulty, when the Super Cross Circus was in town they would often come and train on our track. One of the Pro 250 riders refused to do the triple that Cam was doing everyday on his 125cc and he was 15.”
After many years of extraordinary success all over the globe, the greatest freestyle motocross show on the planet is set to stop in Italy for the very first time as the beautiful capital of Rome, the Eternal City, welcomes the Red Bull X-Fighters World Tour.
On October 2nd Rome will be once again “Caput Mundi”, the capital of the world, as it hosts the Tour’s season finale and crowns the winner of Red Bull X-Fighters World Tour 2010. All roads will indeed lead to Rome as the fearless riders fight their way from the Mexican bullfighting ring to the London arena, paying visits to the Egyptian sphinx, the traditional Spanish bullfighting arena and the Moscow’s Red Square on the way to the ultimate showdown in the Roman Empire. The international FMX elite will go up against each other all season in a battle of skill, strength and stamina, but there can only be one freestyle motocross emperor!
Italy has also another reason to celebrate: Alvaro Dal Farra, former X-Fighters rider and Italian FMX hero, will be one of the judges during the entire World Tour. Rome is glad to welcome these modern warriors on two wheels and looks forward to hosting all FMX fans. One thing is for sure: it is going to be a great show with more than a few stunning surprises.
