Freestyle Motocross Riders Show off Tricks and Flips
An action packed night at Parsons Stadium with freestyle motocross.
“Hanging off the back of the bike, front of the bike, side of the bike, getting twisted upside down,” says Kenny Bartram.
“Pretty cool,” adds Connor Rittins.
Riders tore up the track from older to little kids.
“I’m excited to see them do back flips and front flips,” says Lila Mays.
For some it was their first time to a motocross.
“It’s going to be exciting because I’ve never seen any of this before,” says Alexis Barnett.
“It doesn’t matter if you’re 4, 40 or 80-year-old grandparents, they love to come out and watch, it’s fun. It’s great for us to see the first timers when they get that big grin on their face and just genuine excitement,” adds Bartram.
Pro riders performed their best and craziest tricks Friday night.
Of those performing is Kenny Bartram, 10 time medalist in the X games and 7th time World champion in freestyle motocross.
And when the crowd gets loud, his jumps get higher and his performance is at his best.
“When the crowd gets behind you and they start cheering, you can’t even hear yourself think, it’s just awesome. It kind of makes you lose where you’re at and what you’re doing,” says Bartram.
Before all the excitement people were able to meet and get autographs from the riders.
You can catch kids and amateur motocross racing all day on Saturday.
