Freestyle sensation Lance Coury has just signed on with K&N for 2011. Lance is only 20 years old, but is already recognized worldwide for his Freestyle Motocross career. He has competed at huge freestyle venues such as Red Bull X-Fighters, Swatch 4 Freestyle and AFMXA Nationals, but he is not going to stop here. Lance is quickly becoming recognized as a heavy hitter in the FMX (freestyle motocross) world.

His plans for 2011 are to be a top contender in all the major action sports stages including the highly sought after X-Games. Lance is confident in this proposition as he states "his riding has never been this good."

Lance has been riding motorcycles aggressively since he was 4 years old. He has always been competitive, but not always in freestyle. He started his career in racing and shifted gears to FMX when he was around 15 years old. He quickly rose through the ranks of this FMX battling with obvious challenges. When you're 15 years you're not full grown or at full strength but in FMX you're on a standard 200 pound bike jumping a standard 75 plus feet.

Despite these challenges Lance worked his way up in the FMX world, riding shows and demos and was one of the youngest riders to land the back flip consistently. Currently Lance has all the high level tricks down. From the back flip kiss of death (rider kisses the front fender as he makes a ruler out of body and bike) to huge turn down tail whips, Lance does it all and does it with that extra flair you need to win events.

Now with his sights on winning more events Lance keeps his head down training at the Red Bull Compound in Wyvern Canyon. Aboard a CRF 250 soon to be a 450 Lance differentiates himself from the rest of the FMX field in riding a 4-stroke fuel injected motorcycle. The HA-4509XD is the two piece X-stream top filter that Lance will be running in his open air box 450.

The filter like Lances bike sets him apart both for its looks and performance. K&N is the leading manufacturer of pleated, non-foam, cotton gauze media air filters that are high flow and offer excellent filtration. "I have been using K&N filters on my truck for years, now I'm using the filters on my CRF250r and CRF450r. the reliable air flow and look are awesome!" Lance says.

This filter not only looks cool, it performs better as well. In with all of his bikes modifications Lance will have one of the most high performance motorcycles on the freestyle field.

This performance is necessary for the differentiating venues and conditions. No matter what the run up or conditions launching the bike 75ft plus from jump to jump is necessary to win and Lance's bike will be capable of that.

While other riders get into other sub-disciplines of the sport such as dare devil like stunts and FMX shows, Lance wants to be known as the best. He is willing to sacrifice it all to be known as a true competitor. With Lance a part of the K&N family we hope we can do everything we can to help Lance get to the top!
