FRESNO, Calif. (September 13, 2003) - IFMA Freestyle Motocross Presented by XM Satellite Radio returned to Fresno where Myles Richmond put on a show sweeping the competition at the Selland Arena. Friday night was Richmond's first career IFMA victory as his second came one day later. Consistency paid off for Richmond, technical tricks and flawless execution proved to be enough to beat the back flip.

"Diamond Dave" Demangos pulled off the back flip in his first run on Friday night, but missing on two jumps cost Demangos a trip to the finals. After missing the finals on Friday, Demangos came back strong qualifying in the number one spot on Saturday night. Richmond, the number two qualifier, pulled off a near perfect run scoring a 92.2. Without participating in Saturday's practice, Demangos put together a run in the finals that included two back flips but again, a missed jump was costly. The error dropped Demangos to third behind Richmond and Darin Connet.

Friday's top three:
Myles Richmond 91.8
Jesse Olson 91.2
Derek Burlew 90.4

Saturday's top three:
Myles Richmond 92.2
Darin Connet 92.0
David Demangos 90.7
