Honda backed Cameron 'Sincs' Sinclair has come a long way from his days of pounding out motos as a top motocross/supercross rider. After making the move to Freestyle he has not looked back and carved a name for himself as one of the world leaders in his field. We heard some talk that he may once again have a crack at Supercross so we went straight to the man himself to ask him this question and a few others.
Insider: Sincs, the first quarter of the year is almost over. Tell us what you've been up to?
Well, it's been a really busy couple of months. It started off with the Crusty Tour in New Zealand. We did two shows a week for 6 weeks along with signing sessions and promo obligations so that was really hectic. Straight after the NZ tour was over I was back home did a few shows with the Monster Truck guys and also did my thing at the 3rd and 4th rounds of the Australian Supercross Championship.
Insider: Was it true that you were going to race the last round of the Supercross Championship?
Yeah, I thought it would be fun to ride the practice day beforehand and I actually surprised myself with my speed. So I thought why not have a shot at it. Saturday came around and I went out in practice and really wasn't that far off the fast guys so I was looking forward to racing then around 5 pm the heavens opened up and the track almost turned into a lake so I decided to leave the bike in the truck.
Insider: Any chance of making a Supercross come back one day?
I really hope so. I still wish I could race both the National Championships but I'm just to busy with Freestyle. FMX pays a lot better so while I'm doing well at it I'm just going to run with it.
Insider: We've heard a little rumor that you could be riding at the ESPN X GAMES over in Los Angeles later this year. Any truth to that?
Well at this stage I don't know. It would be a dream come true if I got the chance to compete at X. They only pick the best riders in the world and I know I have to have some really big in my bag of tricks to get selected. I've been working on a couple of things that I think could get me selected but I want to keep a lid on them for a little while. Especially until I nail them to dirt.
Insider: Well keep us in the loop. What about the upcoming UNLEASH HELL Crusty Tour? What can we expect to see?
Man, this is one crazy show. We have the best riders from the US and Australia in the one show. I think there's a total of 16 riders. There have never been this many riders in one show. It's a lot more than just an FMX Show too now with all the crazy lighting and fireworks etc. It's really impressive.
Insider: Can we still get tickets to come along?
Well, you will have to be quick. I know Melbourne sold out its two shows so for the first time we are doing a third show. I think that show is almost full too.
Insider: Well Cam, thanks for taking the time out to have a chat. All the best with your new tricks and the upcoming tour and hopefully we'll chat soon.
