Maddo Joins Arnette Freestyle Motocross


2012 FMX

Arnette is hyped to announce that FMX innovator, Robbie “Maddo” Maddison, is joining the family as the latest member of its freestyle motocross team.

Known for blowing minds with body varials and massive airs, Maddo will be wearing the new Arnette Series 3MX goggle as he attempts to break the motorcycle distance jump record of 391 feet across San Diego Bay during “Red Bull: New Year. No Limits.” live on ESPN on Saturday, December 31 at 11 p.m. ET / 8 p.m. PT.

Robbie Maddison says: “Joining the Arnette FMX team is a breath of fresh air. The Series 3MX goggle is really comfortable, has a huge lens and comes in sweet color ways I’m excited to match to my gear. I also love polarized sunglasses and Arnette has an extensive range, as well as some awesome designs. Arnette is 100 percent style and quality, I’m all about it.”

Maddo is joining Adam Jones as the second rider to be added to Arnette’s growing FMX and MX teams. Arnette has big plans in the FMX and MX worlds, with more announcements to come throughout 2012.

“We couldn’t ask for a better guy than Maddo to be a part of Arnette’s FMX crew. He has sick style, knows the meaning of commitment and enjoys every minute he’s out there on his bike.

Everyone at Arnette can’t wait to see him crush the distance record on New Year’s Eve,” commented Brent Bearden, Arnette Team & Events Specialist.

More information on Robbie Maddison and the rest of the Arnette family can be found online through Arnette’s multiple Web presences.
