Steve Wagner started riding Freestyle Motocross in the spring of 1998. Inspired by the FMX video scene, he began to teach himself basic tricks and soon got comfortable with heel clickers, nothings, and no footed can cans. Over the next year he progressed to doing many of the same tricks he saw in FMX movies and magazines. By the summer of 1999 he began performing in monster truck shows and at motocross races, and after several years of doing local events he set his sights on one day riding at the professional level. However, in July 2002 he was badly injured while riding at a smaller exhibition, putting an end to what had been a year full of progression. Down but not out, he quickly resumed riding and worked to advance his FMX obsession; he recovered quickly and joined the professional ranks in January 2003. Since turning pro he has ridden in numerous freeriding contests and exhibitions. In 2005 he ranked third overall in the IFMA Ramp to Ramp points, winning 10 events. In addition to riding FMX and making Freestyle Motocross Videos, he has also written articles for Moto Playground Magazine, Midwest Motocross Illustrated, and Dirt Rider Magazine.
