❏ Caleb and Colten Moore, aka the
Moore brothers, started riding ATVs at
the early ages of 11 and 13 with their
parents in the backwoods of Texas.
The Honda 250EX was introduced to
the boys, and away they went.
They moved from riding in the
backwoods to racing local tracks.
Freestyle quickly came into play as
Caleb started performing tricks while
hitting the largest jumps on the track.
Caleb moved on to race on the
Media All Stars National MX team,
but quickly figured out freestyle was
the route he wanted to take. While
performing at Hay Days in Minnesota,
Caleb met BC Vaught, who was
working for H-Bombs Films and had
relationships with promoters around
the world. Caleb’s first event with
BC was the Weston Beach Race in
Weston Super Mare, England.
Soon thereafter, an offer came to the
table for Caleb to backflip his quad
at the Montreal Olympic Stadium.
However, Caleb had not yet completed one to dirt, only in a foam
pit. Regardless, Caleb confirmed the
show, practiced hard and successfully landed it in front of 70,000 people.
As Caleb continued to travel and
ride at shows, his younger brother, Colten, saw that there was an
opportunity to see the world and get
paid, all while following their passion—riding quads. Colten joined the
team, learned the flip, and off they
went to places like Colombia, Brazil,
England, Costa Rica, France, Russia,
A new goal for quad freestyle was
set: X Games. After working to get
quads into the Summer X Games
with no luck, Caleb and Colten’s
father, Wade, saw Winter X Games
Snowmobile Freestyle on TV and
told the boys that they had the tal-
ent to perform freestyle on snow-
mobiles as well. With Polaris being
their OEM ATV sponsor at the time,
snowmobiles were ordered and the
boys got accepted into the Games
only a month prior to the competition
by submitting videos showing the
level of their riding. Caleb medaled
that first competition. Since their first
year at Winter X Games, the broth-
ers, together, have taken eight total
medals back to Texas, with two being
Tragically, Caleb suffered a fatal
snowmobile accident in 2013. With
the family’s blessing, Colten chose to
continue the competition and started
a campaign dubbed #RideForCaleb.
One year later, in the 2014 competition, Colten accomplished his
goal and won the gold medal in
Snowmobile Freestyle for Caleb. Of
course he credits his brother for the
success and the abilities he built riding, racing and jumping quads.
