Axell Hodges is a 21-year-old rider from Encinitas, California. “Slay” began his career racing motocross and enjoyed success as an amateur before transitioning into freeriding, which has catapulted him to where he is now. Well known for his incredible style and insane whips, Slay’s most recent success came at this year’s Moto X QuarterPipe High Air competition at X Games where he earned the gold medal. In his entry into this year’s Real Moto competition, Axell rides his Kawasaki KX450F at Jeremy McGrath’s ranch and performs several impressive maneuvers including a nose-wheelie front flip, a nac-nac, and both ramp and natural-terrain quarter-pipe jumps.
