Since the age of five, Cam Sinclair has been riding motorcycles. He travelled with his family to Motocross and Supercross races all over Australia for 15 years winning many state and national championships along the way and becoming known as one of Australia's future racing stars. In his spare time Cam began setting up ramps at friends properties and learning to do some of the basic FMX tricks for fun with his best friend Blake Williams. Eventually his skills progressed and Cam was asked to perform FMX demos at half time at the Australian Supercross Nationals. He would change the seat and side plates from his race setup for the demo, then change them back to compete in the rest of the event. Cam's versatility at the time was rarely seen in Australia; a racer battling for national Supercross podiums, while managing to perform FMX during the half time break. Cam began earning more money due to his FMX, than from racing and decided to switch his focus entirely on FMX in 2006 when he joined the Crusty Demons of Dirt Tour. The Crusty Tour is the biggest touring act in Australia. For Cam to be a part of it full time was a great achievement and helped raise his profile in Australia considerably to the point where he is one the best known action sports athletes in the country. He has performed for them all over Australia, in the UK, India and New Zealand.
In 2008 in Sinclair set a new world record for the longest distance ever back-flipped on a motorcycle (129ft) and became the third person in the world EVER to land a double backflip on a motorcycle. He has since landed almost 100 double flips and in 2009 became the first and only rider in the world ever to do so during a full 90 second competition FMX run. On July 18 2009 Sinclair crashed hard whilst competing in the Red Bull X Fighters Freestyle Motocross event in Madrid, Spain, suffering near fatal injuries when he under rotated and crashed the biggest trick in action sports. Lacerating his liver, breaking many bones and giving him extensive head injuries, his career in FMX was almost certainly over. Facing six long months of daily rehabilitation, Cam Sinclair had to learn to walk talk and operate as a human being again, however his goal was always to return to riding and achieve his dream of winning the biggest event in action sports, the X Games. Almost exactly a year to the day, in Los Angeles California, Sinclair made the ultimate return to the sport he loves; by landing a near textbook double backflip in the X Games, 'Best Trick' event, winning himself the illusive gold medal and completing what is arguably one of the greatest comebacks in sport.
