Childhood And Education

Axell Raymond Hodges is a well-known motocross competitor, and X-games was born on August 20, 1996, in Encinitas, California. His athletic future was written in the sand rather than the stars as he grew up watching his father and two siblings race dirt bikes. Axell Hodges was born to his parents, Triti Hodges and Shaman Hodges. Axell grew up with a sister whose name is Moran Hodges and two older brothers.

Hodges started riding when he was eight years old. Axell grew up with two older brothers who used to ride dirt bikes with their dad when he was a kid. Among his two brothers, one is directing the YouTube mini videos of Axell's Monster Energy. In the backyard of their house, ridges were built for Axell to practice riding every day for half an hour and not more than that because the canyon used to generate echoes, and the neighbors used to complain, so there was no option for him to practice more than that. He installed spark arrestors in his bike's pipes so the canyon would not make echoes. During the time of regular practice, he didn't rev up the engine as he does at the time of actual games.

Aside from biking, he has also participated in many activities which required speed and balance, like snowboarding, surfing, and skating. All his athletic activities paid him off because he got inspiration from the prior activities, which led him to develop something, no one had seen before and had never done.

But he was not only chasing game medals. His aim has always been to set new records. Evel Knievel's son Robbie Knievel has a record of jumping over 25 trucks with the bike, and the huge 378 ft 9 in (11544.3 cm) jump set out on a motorcycle by Robbie Madison, is Axell's goal.

Unfortunately, on a motorcycle, during his practice jump, when he tried to break the record jump of Robbie Maddison, 378 ft 9 in (11544.3 cm), he seriously got hurt in his ankles on a practice jump.

Many were disappointed that Axell missed the opportunity to break the record and his about-to-be career. Axell was thankful and blessed that he survived the crash and nothing worse had happened to him. When he was questioned about missing the chance followed by his injury, Axell said that Travis Pastrana inspired him.
