One more recent addition to the 4-stroke freestyle class is Rockstar Energy rider Mike Mason. Having heard that Mason had switched to the trusty Honda CRF 450 back in the fall, I knew there was going to be some badass pictures surfacing soon.
Not to say shots on his Yamahas weren't always perfectly executed but there is just something about a rider being back on his home bike and in this case Honda has always been home to Mason in racing and FMX.
I would have to wait, though, because at the time the Nuclear Cowboyz tour was getting ready to take off and not being 100 percent sure of your bike in a rushed amount of time is never any good.
So the day came six months later, and when I heard Mason was riding at Ronnie Faisst's house I knew it was time. I got on the horn, called photographer Chris Tedesco and here is my definition of style. Perfect extensions, always held to a pause, and most of all that flowing Mike Mason style! Check out this FMX eye candy in the photo gallery and watch Mason next week when he competes at X Games in Moto X Step Up and Moto X Speed & Style.
