The Gravity Slashers Freestyle Motocross tour will be kicking off in Charlotte N.C. on January 2, 2010 and concluding in Cleveland, Ohio on March 6, 2010. The 15-stop tour will feature some of the world’s best freestyle motocross pros as they attempt to one-up each other with gravity-defying tricks.
The sport is freestyle motocross and with Gravity Slashing tricks like Cliffhangers, Sterilizers, Tsunamis, and Hart Attacks, fans are sure to be on the edge of their seats all night! These feats may sound like accidents waiting to happen, but in reality, they are some of the most astounding aerial acrobatics you’ll ever see.
In freestyle motocross, the name of the game is "anything goes" in this adrenaline-filled contest staged in mid-air. Riders launch their bikes off ramps that propel them towards the rafters, performing mind-bending acrobatic moves as they soar through the arena airspace. The only way to properly experience this spine-tingling sport is from the very edge of your seat as these daredevils fly high overhead.
"We are proud to introduce the Gravity Slashers tour and continue Feld Motor Sports’ longstanding tradition of world class freestyle motocross competition," said Todd Jendro, senior director of operations, Feld Motor Sports. "These riders push the limits of reality and thousands of fans all over the country will have the chance to witness the action up close throughout the winter season."
