Supercross' Biggest Loser Contest

Who is “Supercross’ Biggest Loser?”
Bevo Forte of Scott USA, that’s who!

Bevo has challenged himself to lose weight in an effort to help RiderDown, a non-profit organization that is dedicated to helping injured off-road motorcyclists and ATV racers. At the Amp'd Mobile Supercross GP in Toronto, Canada, Bevo completed the initial weigh-in for his special challenge using the official, certified FIM scales.

Weighing in at 351.8 pounds, Bevo is now on a strict training and diet plan which includes tight controls on his caloric intake. Throughout this challenge, pledges can contribute per pound for each pound Bevo loses, with all proceeds going directly to RiderDown.

Many have already stepped up to pledge and Bevo and RiderDown hope more will follow. The final weigh in will take place in May at the Las Vegas Supercross finals. Supporters can go to to make their pledge. Help encourage Bevo, and help us help riders up at the same time!
