The Moore Brothers spent this past week in France, performing for the crowds attending the 2012 Pont de Vaux Mondial du Quad 12-hour endurance race. From August 24-26, despite the rainy weather, thousands of fans showed up to watch the largest quad race in Europe. Caleb and Colton showed their support by participating in autograph signings, mingling with the locals and performing for the masses, showcasing their mad FMX skills.
Caleb, demonstrating his versatility and skill, performed on both a sled and quad. The brothers executed seamless flip trains on quads and a snowmobile, alongside European rider Miki Monti.
We asked the Moore Brothers a few questions about what life on the road is like.
What did your daily schedule look like on a trip like this?
“Waking up, dealing with jet lag and then heading over to the venue to check weather status and the condition of the mud, prepping the quads and snowmobile, then signing autographs and hanging out with the fans.
What’s the difference between French and American fans?
“French fans are vey excited about the sport. Quite a few of the fans were excited about our results at Winter X this past year and we asking if we are going to be at Winter X Tignes this upcoming year.“
Do you miss racing?
“Yeah, we miss racing, but we love freestyle. We chased our dream and now we get to travel the world doing what we love.”
Best French food? Alcohol?
“McDonalds. Ha! We’ve been to Pont de Vaux several times and this time the promoter walked up to us to greet us and handed over a stack of MacDonalds vouchers the second we arrived.”
“The great thing about France is when you eat, you always order a beer. You never get asked what kind of beer, but its always good. You drink a ton of Ricard too, that’s their hard alcohol.
Carry on or checked?
We wish it was only carry on. We have to take a bunch of parts along with our riding gear, so we have quite the luggage pile.
How did you train for this?
As usual, we hit the foam pit as part of our daily routine.
