Jeff “Chicken” Matasevich on the Swapmoto Live Show


Presented by Ogio Powersports and FMF Racing
Jeff “Chicken” Matiasevich may have only one 125cc Supercross Championship to his credit, but the SoCal native is still an icon in motocross and Supercross. One of the flashiest and most popular riders in the 1990s, Chicken still rides multiple times per week and his love for motocross burns stronger than ever and he still motos on a Kawasaki, the brand he spent most of his professional career on. We were stoked to have Matiasevich in studio to reminisce and get the real stories behind the racing. Enjoy!

    I think I remember the Iguana’s name being referenced in the ad as “Iggy”. I eventually talked my parents into letting me get one and it never got that big before it died… I always wanted a huge one like Chicken’s…
    That last part came out bad lol
