Colby Raha is a 23-year-old freestyle motocross rider from Palmdale, California. Raha earned a gold medal in his X Games debut at Minneapolis 2017 in the inaugural Moto X QuarterPipe High Air competition. In the 2018 running of the event, he earned two more medals with a third place in Moto X Step Up and a second place result in Moto X QuarterPipe High Air. Raha, a former amateur motocross racer, has a strong background in BMX, and says it helps on the quarter pipe.
Two months prior to the 2017 X Games in Minneapolis, Raha was working two full-time construction jobs, but thanks to sponsors, he now rides full-time. In his entry in this year’s Real Moto competition, Raha rides his Kawasaki KX450F and executes several maneuvers including a superman seat grab, rides over an abandoned house, and even jumps over a road as cars are driving by.
