It’s no secret that Jack Miller is an MX enthusiast. So much so that he’s not scared to take risks. Five years ago he fractured his tibia and fibula while training at the Bellpuig track, something that went on to condition the start of his MotoGP season.

But despite this, Jack Miller continues to express his passion for the knobby tyred bikes.

"I’d be lost without MX"

Not too long ago, the newly hired factory Ducati rider told that MX might not be the safest thing to do, but that he really needs to spend time at the dirt tracks. “I do a lot of MX and like the dirt. It’s probably not the safest thing for us, but it keeps my mind healthy”, he said. “When I was a kid, I’d do it every day. Having grown up on a farm, I’d ride MX every day of the week. I’d be lost if I were to stop”, he added.

Now Jack Miller has been showing off his moves with the MX bike, living up to his “Thriller” nickname. The images of his Freestyle-type tricks have been shared on MotoGP social media profiles, receiving thousands of “likes”.
