What was planned for a quick 5 minute voice message for the X Games review series, turned into a full blown interview with the legend of Freestyle Motocross, a man who epitomised the sport, before it was even ‘a thing’.  We talk with none other than ET, Edgar Torronteras.

Of course there was plenty to talk about with this years X Games being completely different, at Axell Hodges’ Slayground due to Covid-19 restrictions, but having been declined an invite to compete in the Best Whip competition, which he already has a Gold Medal in, Edgar explained the story behind it all, and I quickly understood why 5 minutes wasn’t enough to capture everything.

Bananaface as he’s affectionately known, was already wowing crowds with tricks at motocross and supercross events in the early 90’s before the term FMX was even thrown around.  

Now into his 40s, Edgar is still one of the world’s biggest names and is continually throwing down some of the biggest whips, turn downs and turn ups.  

He missed his shot in 2021, can he make his return to X Games in 2022?
