-Extreme Sports 4 All: Hi Brian! First of all, thank you very much! It is great to have the opportunity of having an interview with somebody like you.
Supercross, FMX, Rallyes, Trucks… and now... NASCAR!

Can you explain how did you realize that you had to leave your hometown to make your dream a reality, when you were very young?
-Brian Deegan: I realized I had to leave my hometown when I was 13/14, I saw that all the fast kids were from Cali, and I knew I had to make my way out to CA if I wanted to be the best.

-Extreme Sports 4 All: You have won 12 medals in Freestyle Motocross X-Games, which is a record since X-Games were created. Do you think that you could ever see a successor in the future?
-Brian Deegan: Records are there to be broken, one day someone will break mine.

-Extreme Sports 4 All: An injured spleen, broken bones and three near-death experiences… There are some people that think this is mad, but do you think that you are crazy, or are they crazy because they don't understand this way of getting an adrenaline rush?
-Brian Deegan: To me it's just something that goes along with a sport that I enjoy doing. I know it's a little crazy but the adrenaline rush is all part of the sport, I don’t see living life any other way.

-Extreme Sports 4 All: Could you describe your first bike? Do you still have it?
-Brian Deegan: My first bike was a Honda Trail 50 – I got it when I was 8. I wish I still have it but back in the day I had to sell my bikes every year to get new ones.

-Extreme Sports 4 All: Can you tell us about your worst accident?
-Brian Deegan: My worst accident I injured my kidney, my spleen and I lost 4 pints of blood.

-Extreme Sports 4 All: Coming back again to Metal Mulisha, you as a founding member of the group, who do you think is the craziest and most spectacular guy ever in Metal Mulisha?
-Brian Deegan: The craziest rider in Metal Mulisha is me!
