Miller and Buyten take over Philadelphia Freestyle Motocross; heavy competition among the elite IFMA riders.

PHILADELPHIA, Pa. (January 10, 2004) - IFMA Freestyle Motocross presented by XM Satellite Radio landed once again in Philadelphia with some tough competition. Friday night, Dustin Miller was left as the last man sitting in the hot seat by a mere two-tenths of a point. Dustin proved that competitors do not need to perform the backflip to win an IFMA competition. There was more close competition on Saturday night with Matt Buyten beating Beau Bamburg by one-tenth of a point. Highlights of Buyten's run were several no-handed lander combinations, including the backflip, which Buyten just added to his arsenal of tricks last weekend.

Darin Connet was another superstar of the weekend when he performed his specialty combination of a dead body, McMetz no-handed lander without checking the bars. This trick landed him in third place for Friday night. Cody Elkins also stole the show during the skills competition with his big whip, which landed him in the final round both nights.

Friday's IFMA Freestyle Motocross Results:
1. Dustin Miller 91.9
2. Matt Buyten 91.72
3. Darin Connet 91.0

Saturday's IFMA Freestyle Motocross Results:
1. Matt Buyten 92.3
2. Beau Bamburg 92.2
