In this gripping episode, motocross legend Colin "Scummy" Morrison takes us on a wild ride through his life. From the dirt tracks of his youth to the global stage, Colin's passion for motocross fueled his meteoric rise. At just 16, he turned pro and left jaws dropping as he tore up the circuit.

But fame came with a price. As an original member of the notorious **Metal Mulisha**, Colin reveled in the adrenaline-fueled lifestyle. X-Games medals adorned his neck, and he crisscrossed the world, leaving dust and awe in his wake. Yet, beneath the glitz and glamour, darkness loomed.

The partying escalated, and Colin found himself ensnared by addiction. But life has a way of surprising us. Colin shares the turning point that led him out of the abyss. Today, his existence is more fulfilling than he ever dreamed possible—a testament to resilience, redemption, and the power of two wheels.

Tune in as Colin Morrison takes us from darkness to life, revealing the highs, lows, and the unwavering spirit that kept him riding the edge.
