Born Jeremy Stenberg (September 27, 1981), this freestyle motocross rider and one of FMX’s top riders today, is affectionately known by industry and fans alike as ‘Twitch’, a name which he received because of his Tourette’s. Stenberg was diagnosed with Tourette’s Syndrome at the age of five.

Twitch began riding motorbikes at the age of two after his father bought him his first bike. At 16 he joined the Metal Mulisha crew, and with the help of Brian Deegan and the Metal Mulisha Family and his own family, Twitch quickly rose to become one of FMX’s top riders.

Twitch is also known for starring in MTv’s True Life: I have Tourette’s Syndrome.
