The Nuclear Cowboyz will be taking over the IZOD Center in East Rutherford, NJ on March 15th and 16th! My family and I had the pleasure of attending their show last year and we had a wonderful time. It is the only high octane-fueled freestyle motocross touring production in North America.
Two freestyle motocross tribes battle it out for survival in their futuristic world and tell the story through aerial feats, gravity-defying stunts, and an amazing pyrotechnic and laser display accompanied by an electrifying soundtrack. This year’s cast includes recent X Games 2012 medalists Ronnie Faisst, Mike Mason, Taka Higashino and Winter X Games gold and silver medalist Colten Moore.
The tour also includes former gold medalists Adam Jones and Matt Buyten as well as award-winning freestylers Derek Garland, Brody Wilson, Jimmy Fitzpatrick, Wes Agee, Nick Dunne, Geoff Aaron, Keith Wineland and Marco Picado. We had the opportunity to speak to Keith Wineland and ask him some questions about what his life is like as a Nuclear Cowboy:
Interview with Keith Wineland
1. How did you first become a rider and what attracted you to the sport?
My dad had me start riding trials when I was 5 years old. It attracted me because it was cool watching the other trials riders and learning the techniques.
2. What are some of the challenges involved in having such a dangerous career?
Some challenges to having such a dangerous career are staying mentally focused at all times and physically fit. If you slip up at all it could cause a crash that hurts you or your machine.
3. Do you spend a lot of time away from your loved ones/family? If so, how do you deal with the separation and making time for quality family time?
I manage to see my family during the week as much as I can. Shows and competitions are usually during the weekends.
4. How do your parents feel about you having such a dangerous career?
My Dad doesn’t really mind that my career is dangerous but my mom on the other hand can’t even watch me ride.
5. What advice would you give to young people who are considering riding as a career option?
My advice for young people considering riding as a career is to put 110% into it and also finish school. You never know what could happen, so it’s good to have something to fall back on.
