The story of 14-time X Games medalist and one of the most influential figures in freestyle motocross. A founding member of the Metal Mulisha, Deegan was the first ever to do a 360 in competition. Deegan quickly rose to stardom and became a household name across the country, but once he began to feel the effects of past injuries the FMX icon returned to another kind of racing: rally and off-road. He is the most decorated freestyle motocross rider in X Games history.
