Competitions and shows
FMX is a sport, but also a show - so there are shows on which drivers demonstrate their skills in order to entertain the audience, and there are some serious competitions. For instance, FMX is part of prestigious extreme sports competition - X Games - for years now. On competitions like that judges evaluate style, execution and complexity of tricks, and even the interaction between drivers and audience - who has a great impact on scoreboard.
It can be said that competitions put too much pressure on drivers - and that is the reason why show programmes became more attractive. The whole atmosphere is more casual, and tricks are more enthusiastic. One of these shows is Masters of Dirt.
