BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - The nation's best Freestyle Moto-X riders are set for high-flying action at Mesa Marin Raceway Saturday, Oct. 7 as Milestone Motorsports Marketing presents the Freestyle Moto-X Air MX Challenge. The event is scheduled to host more than 15 top Freestyle Moto-X riders including X-Games gold-medallist Tommy Clowers, Brian Deegan, X-Games silver-medallist Kris Rourke, Ronnie Faist, Jeff Tilton and Jeremy Stenberg. "Freestyle Moto-X is an amazing sport," said Terry Dickerson, president of Milestone Motorsports Marketing. "We've invited the best riders and expect an incredible performance."

Freestyle Moto-X competitors are awarded points on style, technical difficulty and use of course as they complete midair tricks. Riders fly more than 90-feet from launch to landing while gliding more than 30-feet above the ground.

The riders will compete for their part of a $27,500 event purse. In addition to freestyle competition, the event also will host a step-up contest. Riders will attempt to vertically launch on a ramp and clear a horizontally mounted bar. The bar will be raised after each round until only one rider remains.

Gates are set to open at 5:30 p.m. with the freestyle action taking flight at 7.

Reserved seats are $25 for adults and $13 for children ages 4-12. Children under 4 will be admitted free. General admission tickets are $20 for adults and $10 for children ages 4-12. Tickets for the event are available at all Vallitix locations or by calling (661) 322-5200.
