RiderDown and Racer X Team Up

February 23, 2007 3:00pm
Capping off an incredible year of helping riders up came news that Racer X and Racer Productions, Inc. wanted to team up with
RiderDown to help us on our mission! The result is The Passion Tour, a series of fund-raising events to help raise awareness and support for our mission of “Helping Riders Up”.

Racer Productions, producer of the Suzuki Grand National Cross Country Series ("GNCC"), the High Point and Steel City Motocross Nationals, and various ATVA National Motocross events, decided to team up with RiderDown after meeting with Board members in Las Vegas during the Endurocross. They were pleased to learn that we provide financial assistance and personal support to injured off-road riders, that our partnership with American Medical Bill Review has helped injured riders save thousands on excessive and/or unnecessary medical charges, and that our RiderDown Angels visit riders in hospitals and at
home bearing gifts and offering a friendly voice during difficult  times. Stay tuned for more information regarding The Passion Tour; we will be announcing dates and locations soon. If you would like to host a Passion event, please contact Tim Cotter of Racer Productions at tcotter@mxsports.com, to learn how to become a RiderDown Angel, go to www.riderdown.org or email us at info@RiderDown.org.

And the winner is...
On November 11, 2006, Malcolm Smith drew the winning raffle ticket for RiderDown’s “Making Dreams Come True” raffle. Kyle Stickelman from Lincoln, Nebraska was the lucky winner and will soon be riding a new, customized 2006 KTM 200XC! Kyle has been a RiderDown supporter from the beginning.

After learning he won, Kyle wrote:
“I would really like to thank everyone at RiderDown and all of the people and sponsors who put a lot of time, effort and donations into this contest. I am very proud and honored to be associated with such a great and worthy cause.”

Other prizes included:
• a TrailTrick Suspension & Tuning Services package awarded to Randall LaBrie
of Valencia, California,
• a PowerSports Graphx kit to Stephen Purcell of Milford, Pennsylvania,
• a $100 gift certificate from AfterBurnerMX to Rick Tyren of Diablo, California,
• a custom Tugger Lift Strap to Gil Griebe of Clarkson City, Nevada

The drawing took place at the grand-opening celebration of Malcolm’s new 68,000-squarefoot facility in Riverside, California. RiderDown would like to thank KTM North America, Malcolm Smith Motorsports, and all the wonderful people who bought raffle tickets to support RiderDown.

Congratulations to all of the lucky winners!
