Jeremy "Twitch" Stenberg (born September 27, 1981 in San Diego, California) is a professional freestyle motocross rider and professional off-road truck racer. Stenberg received his nickname 'Twitch' from his Tourette's syndrome, which he was diagnosed with at the age of eight. He started riding dirtbikes at the age of two so his father could spend more time with him and keep him out of their dangerous neighbourhood.[1] He is a born again Christian.[2]

Other projects[edit]

In 2006, Stenberg starred in MTV's True Life: I Have Tourette's Syndrome.[3]

In 2011, VH1 debuted their reality series The X-Life,[4] in which Stenberg co-stars[5] alongside BMX dirt rider Cory Nastazio, skateboard vert champion Pierre-Luc Gagnon (aka PLG) and their families.

Stenberg has been racing off-road trucks in the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series and he won the 2010 Super Lite season championship.[6] In 2015, he competed in the X Games' Speed Energy Formula Off-Road category,[7] but failed to qualify for the final race after finishing fourth and last in his heat race and the last-chance qualifier, respectively.[8]

Stenberg also had his own DVD called Twitch: Hoodrich.
