Filtrate MX Team Rider

Joel Brown takes 1ST @AFMX Jetpilot Invitational

Filtrate’s freestyle motocross team rider Joel Brown has lived up to expectations he’s the rider to beat at the 2013 Australian and Underground Freestyle Motocross Championships (AFMXC) by claiming victory at the opening round, the Jetpilot Invitational, at Coonabarabran, NSW over the weekend.

Brown conquered both a world-class course and stiff competition from Australian legend Matt Schubring and Nowra’s Luke McNeill on his way to the win. The YZ250 rider was at his aggressive best, throwing some of the biggest tricks in the business such as Seatgrab Indy Flips, Whip Flips, a Double Can flip off the 110ft ramp and huge upright combos. “I’m really pumped to win on a big course like this,” Brown said afterward. “It was also great to be standing on the podium next to [Matt Schubring]. I’ve looked up to him as a rider for a long time.”
