The Crusty Demons are a group of daredevil motorcyclists.

This all started in 1994 when filmmakers Jon Freeman and Dana Nicholson had been accumulating footage to showcase a behind the scenes expose of the lifestyle of an American pro motocross rider in action, 145ft plus jumps, 45ft high in the air, soaring over sand dunes, mountains, houses, buses, and anything else secure and steep enough to hold the weight of bike and rider.

The end result was Fleshwound Films and the first OF MANY CRUSTY videoS; Crusty Demons of Dirt.

The launch of this video was to change the face of motocross and create a sport that has become the most popular of all extreme sports today, Freestyle Motocross (FMX).

It was only to grow bigger

With the release of Crusty 2 in 1996 and Crusty 3 in 1997 the sport was booming with popularity, and the idea of freestyle motocross competitions was growing.

Before long, FMX was introduced as a new sport in the ‘99 X Games in San Francisco and was given worldwide exposure through ESPN television.

CRUSTYS IS WHERE IT ALL BEGAN
