Flips, tricks, stunts and other acrobatic feats will dazzle fans

LEXINGTON, OHIO (July 2, 2013) – The Monster Energy Freestyle Motocross (FMX) team is coming to Mid-Ohio on Saturday, July 13 at the Buckeye SuperBike Weekend presented by Dunlop Tire.

Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course will feature three of the world’s best riders performing incredible jumps and gravity-defying airborne stunts – as they soar 40 feet overhead ­between ramps 75 feet apart – during a two hour show. The riders will perform classic and amazing aerial stunts including the Superman, Rock Solids, No-Footed Nac-Nacs and the Kiss of Death back flip.

In addition to high-flying dirt bikes, fans can pick-up some swag and score autographs from the superstar riders after the show at the Monster Energy tent.

The FMX team is brought to the Buckeye SuperBike Weekend by Monster as part of a multi-year partnership that names Monster the Official Energy Drink of Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course. Monster is the leading marketer and distributor of energy drinks and alternative beverages.

“Monster Energy has stepped up to bring the stunt team to Mid-Ohio and we couldn’t be more excited,” said Craig Rust, Mid-Ohio president. “The fans are accustomed to the incredible racing on track and adding these freestyle riders will bring even more to the event for them to enjoy.”
