Brian Deegan Net Worth $10 Million
Brian Deegan’s interest in motocross dates back to his youth – at the age of 17, he was already a pro supercross rider. In 1997, Brian Deegan won his first trophy, in the 125cc category. He ghost rode his bike across the finish line which set his later rebel attitude on the track and also began what is today known as freestyle motocross. By astonishing the crowd as much as the officials, Brian Deegan has quickly risen to fame which later brought him honors as well as quite respectable net worth.
Alongside his “bike colleagues” Tommy Clowers and Mike Jones, Brian Deegan founded the “Metal Mulisha”, a group of bikers who, as he acknowledged in an interview for the Courier Mail of Australia, stood against the establishment. The group has managed to make an already extreme sport even more extreme with astonishing, deadly dangerous stunts, such as Sterilizer, Coffin or the Superman Seat Grab. Metal Mulisha’s trademark, apart from extreme, death defying stunts and mid-air bike switches, is black, spiked leather suits and bad boy attitudes. This Brian Deegan venture has put freestyle motocross among the most popular extreme sports, and has certainly massively increased his overall wealth.
Although he won medals at every X Games between 1999 and 2002, Brian Deegan’s first gold medal came in the 2002 Winter X games, were he won the Big Air competition, with the Mandatory Suicide stunt of his own invention which includes 100-foot jump over a snow-covered track – in mid-air, Brian jumped from the seat of the bike, twisted his body through the air and landed seating sideways.
Apart from professional motocross, Brian Deegan has also made some efforts towards the movie industry, as a stunt biker. His most famous “roles” so far were in the action movie “xXx” in 2002, when he dubbed Vin Diesel as well as in the 2005 “Fantastic Four”. These engagements have certainly positively impacted Brian Deegan’s net worth as well as promoting his extreme professional career.
In 2009, Brian Deegan switched to four wheels and off-road racing. Just a year later he won two silver medals in Rally Car Racing and Rally Car Super Rally events, then in 2011 the gold medal in X Games in Rally Cross. It is certain that all these accomplishments have helped Brian Deegan to add a significant sum to the size of his net worth.
During his professional career so far, Brian Deegan has faced death several times. In 2004, he crashed during a 360 attempt of 100-feet snow double and broke his thighbone and both his wrists, but after only six months, returned on the track. During filming MTV’s “Viva La Bam” in 2005, Brian Deegan almost died when a stunt went wrong, which resulted in him losing a kidney and breaking several bones.
Beside being one of the greatest in motocross, Brian Deegan is also a successful business man. He is the owner of the clothing brand Metal Mulish as well as the Heavy Hitters toy line. His latest business venture includes teaming up with Illektron and creating a collectable card and dice game named Battlez FMX. Doubtlessly, these achievements have dramatically increased Brian Deegan’s overall net worth.
