“The exposure we get from being in the X Games is better than we could get winning every AMA national event for the next ten years,” said Atkins. “The X Games is in a class by itself.”

Atkins prepared for the X games in his 2008 CRF Honda with K&N products at Adams Kart Track in Riverside, California. “I use K&N air and oil filters (KN-116), and as far as I’m concerned there is no other choice out there,” said Atkins. “We could choose any product we want but we choose K&N because it works.”

Atkins competed in the Premier Class during AMA competition, and he will be in the Supermoto Class at the X Games. The Supermoto final will air Saturday at 4:00 pm PST on ESPN.

Atkins also plans to ride next in Europe and New Zealand.
