Airwalk Signs FMX Athlete Ronnie Renner

Collective Licensing International (CLI) has added Ronnie Renner, professional Freestyle Motocross (FMX) athlete, to the Airwalk pro team.

Under the agreement, Renner will endorse Airwalk footwear as the first Freestyle Motocross athlete on the roster. As one of the hardest working athletes in FMX, Renner has the skills and attitude to be the perfect ambassador to introduce Airwalk to the Moto world.

"Ronnie is one of the most respected athletes in motocross with a long future ahead of him; we’re proud to support him and make him a part of the Airwalk team," said Bruce Pettet, President and CEO of Collective Licensing International.

An 11-year FMX veteran, Renner brings a full resume of achievements, as well as a competitive spirit to Airwalk. Last year the 32-year-old took home the gold in the X Games Step-Up and has been a consistent top performer in prior competitions. In 2008, Renner set a World Record for the highest Motorcycle jump on a quarter pipe at a staggering 59 feet 2 inches on California’s Santa Monica pier only to break it one year later at 63 feet 5 inches.

Renner has appeared on MTV’s Nitro Circus and Fuel TV’s The Great Ride Open and has earned podium positions in X Games, Red Bull X-Fighters and many others. Renner is also working on his own "Freeride Tour," a venture that allows budding FMX riders to spend a week at a time at riding locations across the country.

"I am thrilled to be part of the Airwalk team, I have been a fan of the brand since I was a teenager," said Renner. "It’s exciting to have Airwalk recognize Moto, I’m looking forward to a great year ahead."

Renner joins world-class athletes on the Airwalk roster including skateboarders Andy Macdonald and Tulio de Oliveira, surfers Anastasia Ashley and Warren Metcalfe, and Snowboarders Lindsey Jacobellis and Erich Dummer.
