‘The General’ of freestyle motocross, Brian Deegan, will report for duty at the Crusty Demons Thirst 4 Destruction tour show in Brisbane next month.
A pro Supercross racer turned FMX superstar, Deegan has been at the forefront of the emerging action sports movement for many years and has the silverware, and scars, to prove it.
With his X Games medal tally well into double digits, Deegan has recently turned his attention to another passion of his, four wheels, and competitively races off-road trucks, rally cars and NASCAR Late Model Stock Cars when his hectic schedule allows.
Deegan is also the founder of cult moto brand, the Metal Mulisha, which is an active supporter and sponsor of riders across the globe, including current Crusty tour talents Jackson Strong and Taka Higashino.
Deegan’s name is synonymous with FMX but has expanded well beyond the sport, with toy stores stocking his own action figures and banks offering branded Deegan Mastercard credit cards.
Jetting in for the Brisbane show on November 13, Deegan said he was looking forward to getting back to his roots and joining a number of long-time friends on the Thirst 4 Destruction Tour.
“I can’t wait to come back to Australia and ride the Crusty show. Ever since the first show in 99′ I’ve put this tour and the fans at the top of the list. Its time for Mulisha to come back and take over!” Deegan said.
The addition of the Metal Mulisha ‘General’ further bolsters the international lineup on the current Crusty Demons live tour.
Deegan joins Nate Adams, Mike Mason, Adam Jones, Beau Bamburg, Seth Enslow, Mike Metzger, Taka Higashino and many more renowned FMX icons.
The Aussie contingent is just as solid, with Robbie Maddison, Jackson Strong, Kain Saul, Emma McFerran, Steve Mini, Matt Schubring, Joel Balchin and more taking part in the national five-stop tour.
Tickets to the Brisbane (Brisbane Entertainment Centre) show are available at ticketek.com.au or by phoning 132 849.
The final stop of the 2010 tour will be held in Sydney on 27 November at Acer Arena.
