Kenny Bartram, 2002 IFMA Champion, has sustained the points lead so far in 2003, but rising stars Adam Jones and Beau Bamburg continue to apply pressure every weekend. Surprising talent, Derek Burlew and Matt Buyten have surpassed veterans like Tommy Clowers and "Mad Mike" Jones to secure a spot in the top ten leading into the single event weekends.

"We have seen a new breed of talent thus far in 2003. It is great for the sport and continues to raise the level of competition among the riders. I am looking forward to the remainder of the IFMA season and to see how the competition unfolds," TD Lovett, Vice President of IFMA Freestyle Motocross.
