“cbdMD Recover is part of my warm-up routine before I hit the track, and I usually use cbdMD Freeze afterward. I ride so much that they really have become part of my everyday life. I’m so glad I found this stuff. It makes a huge difference.”

When talking about his childhood dreams, Nate Adams put it in the simplest terms. “I wanted to just be a dirt bike rider,” he said. He achieved that goal and much, much more.

Like most freestyle motocross (FMX) standouts, he started riding before the age of five and started with racing. But the extreme sports renaissance of the late 1990s offered new opportunities and thrills. He notched his first major mark when he was chosen as IFMA’s Rookie of the Year in 2000. Two decades later, he remains one of the most influential riders in the game.

Along the way, he’s scored a staggering amount of podium finishes on the world's biggest stages, including first-place finishes in two 2002 WFA Series disciplines (Big Air, Freestyle), back-to-back wins at the LG Action Sports FMX Championships (2003, 2004), the top finisher in overall standings for the 2006 Dew Tour, and the overall champion of Red Bull X-Fighters tour in 2009 and 2010.

He’s also compiled the most medals of any FMX athlete at the X Games – a total of 19, including five gold, six silver, and eight bronze.

Add to all of that, Travis Pastrana once called Adams the “best FMX rider on this planet.” Who needs championships when you have that endorsement?

Though largely retired from competition, Adams still rides as much as possible. He also owns and operates a family business, Deft Family, specializing in riding gloves and apparel.
