AURORA, Ill. – Feld Motor Sports® announced today that FUEL TV will air “Nuclear Cowboyz® Freestyle Chaos: Behind the Scenes,” an in-depth, and behind-the-scenes, look at creating the world’s greatest freestyle motocross production, on Friday, February 4 at 9:00 p.m. EST. This 30-minute special captures everything from the Nuclear Cowgirlz℠ dance tryouts and pre-rehearsals in Los Angeles, to the intense two-week show rehearsals near Orlando, Florida. FUEL TV cameras also were onsite as the riders and cast premiered the 2011 Nuclear Cowboyz® Freestyle Chaos touring season in front of 20,000+ fans at Baltimore’s First Mariner Arena on January 14-15.
FUEL TV followed the cast and the creative team in this exclusive collaboration capturing the long days, hard nights, and even bringing in the New Year as the action-packed production began to take shape. The world’s top riders, led by Adam Jones and Ronnie Faisst, take this new explosive Nuclear Cowboyz freestyle motocross action to a whole new level with never before seen choreographed sequences. This includes four side-by-side back flips, two riders who back flip while on fire, and two side-by-side quad back flips by Derek Guetter and Colton Moore.

Produced by Feld Motor Sports, the Nuclear Cowboyz Freestyle Chaos tour ignites the high-octane sport of freestyle motocross with the high caliber of entertainment production for which the company is known. Nuclear Cowboyz Freestyle Chaos is the legend of two powerful freestyle motocross tribes, the Soldiers of Havoc℠ and the Metal Mulisha™, whose survival in their post-apocalyptic world is told through gravity defying and fearless freestyle motocross aerial feats. The Nuclear Cowboyz mayhem and chaos is literally set in extreme non-stop motion when the tribes are challenged by a third tribe in the dark underworld known as the Shadow Warriorz℠ that begins the ultimate battle for world supremacy.
“Once the lights go down and the music is cranked up, audiences will be shocked by the intense battle of extreme risk as the riders of Nuclear Cowboyz Freestyle Chaos culminate aerial feats into a theatrical explosion,” says Charlie Mancuso, President of Feld Motor Sports®. “The 2011 Nuclear Cowboyz Freestyle Chaos tour includes more elements than ever before and increases the chaotic extreme action among the Soldiers of Havoc, the Metal Mulisha, and the Shadow Warriorz tribes. The Shadow Warriorz tribe, which consists of the Nuclear Cowgirlz dancers, acrobats, quad riders, and trials riders, literally provoke the two freestyle motocross tribes using just the sheer force and agility of trials bikes and quads along with the physical strength of their bodies and the ruined remains of the post-apocalyptic world.”
“We were fortunate to have incredible access to this unprecedented project during the intense two week countdown to the tour’s launch,” says CJ Olivares, FUEL TV’s GM. “The special is a rare opportunity to see your favorite freestyle motocross stars pioneer a new format of action sports entertainment.”
Since premiering on January 14 in Baltimore, MD, the non-stop, aerial amazement freestyle motocross rock concert has performed to almost 50,000 fans. FUEL TV premieres the 2011 television special Friday as the riders and cast make their way to Atlanta’s Phillips Arena Saturday for its fourth stop on its North American 12 city tour.
