KX en Y : a motocross model and a motocross trick. The book and its title are embedded in those two elements that define stunting. As for the rest, it is defined by the riders that Adrien Vautier followed.
The photo reporter covered the daily lives of these young motocross aficionados burning rubber regularly from their suburbs to Paris, taking all kinds of risks. He offers a complete and sharp report, reflecting the constant peril that these bikers face when they ride out in group.
The photo report tells a story about the group, crews no longer present, danger, euphoria, accidents, ever constant police presence. Wheelying passion has no age, no social background, no limit. To watch KX en Y is to feel your heartbeat accelerate and to self-inject a dose of adrenaline.
