Introducing Your Semifinalists

Introducing Your Semifinalists

August 28, 2014 7:00pm

If there’s anything to take away from the start of this year’s Racer X Amateur Film Festival, presented by MotoSport and ISAW, it’s that:

  1. The amateur videographers are still procrastinators and 
  2. The talent pool has gotten deeper.

We didn’t receive a good portion of the entries until the last week of the submission period, but judging by the quality of most, the videographers really put some time into their edits. 

Everyone at Racer X would like to thank the many amateur videographers that put forth the dedication to make a quality motocross film. It was as tough as ever for our internal panel of judges to hand select only eight semifinalists from a large group of talented up-and-comers, which is why we’re featuring a small handful of honorable mentions below.

Without further delay, here are the 2014 Racer X Amateur Film Festival semifinalists:

  • Lee-Michael Bransgrove - South Africa
  • Jared Conley - Indiana
  • Stephen Erikson - Illinois
  • Patrick Evans - North Carolina
  • Max Hind - Great Britain
  • Maxime Messier - Canada
  • Lloyd Ramsey - South Africa
  • Luke Wolhuter - Australia

The semifinals will start tomorrow at 4:30 EDT with North Carolina’s Patrick Evans going head-to-head against Australia’s Luke Wolhuter. Each semifinalist will ultimately be competing for the following prizes:
