Alright, so If you haven’t figured it out already, I love bikes and I love movies/series. I’m a huge enduro and motocross fan so I thought instead of creating multiple articles for these – let me make one awesome moto resource for everyone out there that shares my passions.
Some of my personal favorites are the Crusty Demons and The Moto movies which you’ll find below. Wherever possible I’ve included links for you to watch the movies for free, usually on the RedBull website. For some of the others where I was not able to find the full movies, I’ve added links to Amazon streaming or the page where you can purchase the VHS and DVD copies as gifts for your friends and family.
Let’s get it into the films.

The Crusty Demons box set is a traditional go-to set of films located on the top of my TV cabinet. Every time family and friends come over for a couple of beers, things tend to get lively and our go-to moto-motivation is the Crusty Demons. These movies have some of the most epic music, if you enjoy the tunes, check out my list of dirt bike music & playlist to rock your world. They’re an incredible band of freestyle riders tackling insane terrain all over the US, Australia, New Zealand, and Europe. This set makes for an awesome gift for anyone interested in dirt bikes.

Revelation 199: Travis Pastrana
This is a movie showing all the crazy things a young Travis Pastrana got up to in his youth. It shows how he grew himself into an absolute legend in the world of motocross and Freestyle MX. It also gives some interesting perspectives into his life as a teenager and his very first races. I’d say this is an awesome video for anyone that’s new to the world of two wheels as it shows you exactly what’s possible if you fully commit to your passion. Watching this movie after watching the Nitro Circus saga really puts a lot of things into perspective for me.

The guys in this movie really are nuts. They take 50cc dirt bikes to places where they don’t belong. Highways, byways, cities, and suburbs. It’s actually quite impressive what you can do on one of these bikes if you have big enough nuts.

The Terrafirma movies are an amazing set of collectors’ editions. The movies are pretty old, with Terrafirma 1 being released in 1994, but they’re so good it’s still worth bringing out the old VCR machine. The movies cover some of the latest and greatest riders, some of whom are still massive in the AMA scene today. Big names like Doug Henry, Robbie Reynard, Ricky Carmichael, James Stewart, Travis Pastrana, Ezra Lusk, Ricky Carmichael are just a few. The films cover the early days of AMA supercross racing, Freerides, off-road trails and even epic desert wasteland exploration.
The Terrafirma movies make for an awesome gift for anyone that’s been involved or passionate about the moto scene from the early ’90s. I’ve included a few links below where I was able to find either VHS or DVD copies available for gifts or memorabilia. You can also find the remastered copies of Terrafirma films which you can watch for free on the Fox Racing website, or some of them are available on YouTube as well.
Another old school film released back in 1999 by Fox Racing. This one shows an incredible mixture of riding landscapes from Freerides, Supercross, and extreme outdoor moto. It’s only available on VHS but it’s definitely one of the classics that paved the way forward for moto movies. Key riders include Pastrana, Travis, Carmichael, Ricky, Seth, Metzger.
