After jumping further on a motorcycle than anyone in history, leaping on and off a 93-foot replica of the Arc de Triomphe and doing a backflip across the world famous London Tower Bridge, Thor and Parts Unlimited rider Robbie Maddison can now add being a guest on the Tonight Show to his list of accomplishments.

Tonight, Maddo, along with fellow freestyle competitors Adam Jones and Mike Mason, will show host Conan O’Brien and the millions watching at home what freestyle motocross is all about in an effort to help promote the third round of the 2009 Dew Tour that begins this weekend at the Rose Quarter in Portland, Ore. from August 13-16.
A take-off and landing ramp will be set up for the three FMX stars outside the Tonight Show studios in Los Angeles. With the 2010 line of Thor gear dropping just ten days ago, Maddo will surely be looking his best and performing at his peak thanks to the latest and most cutting-edge design of the new FLUX and CORE lineups.
All the excitement begins at 11:35 p.m. EST on NBC. Don’t miss it!
