2012 Freestyle Motocross Series Schedule Announced

December 12, 2011 3:25pm
AURORA, Ill. – The 2012 Freestyle Motocross Series will invade eight cities as the world’s most daring FMX riders run the gauntlet to perform tricks never thought to be possible on a dirt bike! Back flip variations, Suicide Cans, and the Kiss of Death are just a few of the gravity-defying tricks that will be on display at each event. Each rider will throw down for 90 seconds, trying to execute the craziest combo of tricks possible—but only one will win.

The rider lineup for 2012 includes, Drake McElroy (Fernley, Nev.), Jimmie McGuire (Lawton, Okla.), Julian Dusseau (Humboldt County, Calif.), Keith Sayers (Butte, Mont.), Kenny Bell (Reno, Nev.), Derek Burlew (Cliffwood Beach, NJ), Gabriel Villegas (Chile), and Nick Dunne (Redding, Calif.).

In addition to the insane FMX action going down during the two-hour show, the 5050 BMX crew and freestyle quad daredevil, Cody Elkins, will be on hand to amp up the show and keep the party going in between FMX runs. They won’t cease to amaze with the level of tricks they perform!

Once the high-flying competition has been decided, all of the riders will head to the arena concourse for an intimate autograph session that will allow fans to get up close and personal with the athletes.
