Adam Jones got his first bike at the age of ten, and even though it wasn't the best bike out there; Adam was on it every day. After seeing their son excel so quickly, Jones' parents bought him a proper bike so he could start racing. During his seven years on the race circuit, Adam made it on the podium at almost every event he competed in. Unfortunately, an injury forced him to take a year off the track. At that point, he realized he was taking racing so seriously that he wasn't enjoying his time on the bike anymore. So, after finishing his rehab, he decided to have more fun with it.
He soon began riding and jumping with friends just for fun; however, it was only after taking a real break from the race circuit that Jones decided to try on the IFMA Freestyle Motocross Circuit. The breakthrough moment came at an IFMA X Games qualifier event, where Adam grabbed the final qualifying position and realized that, all of a sudden; he had taken the first step towards his dream of winning an X-Games gold medal.
Today, Adam Jones is one of the world's top FMX riders. He has not only accomplished his goal of winning an X-Games gold medal in 2007, but he is consistently finished in the top three of almost every event he competes in. In 2007, Adam was named International Rider of the Year and received the prestigious Transworld Motocross Rider of the Year award. In 2008, he accomplished another goal by becoming the 2008 AST Overall Tour Champion.
Since 2009, Jones is a regular rider on the Red Bull X-Fighters World Tour and knows how to play his cards after over 20 starts overall in the series. With 4 results in the top 3, Jones is one not to underestimate. In 2014, he opened up in Mexico with a strong performance ending up 4th but was unable to ride in Osaka and Madrid. The track on Munich´s Olympic Lake wasn´t his favorite and he ended up only 9th; however, he was back on fire when the tour moved to its final leg in South Africa.
After a strong tour finish in Pretoria in 2014, Jones was ready to attack again in the 2015 season opener in Mexico City but could not step on the podium. The Yamaha rider got a 6th position and repeated that same result at the event in Madrid. With an overall 11th place in the world tour ranking, Jones finished under his expectations, but he will be back in Las Ventas in 2016 with his regular attitude: In it to win it.
