9TH ANNUAL ASA WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS OF FREESTYLE MOTOCROSS RETURNS TO LA COUNTY FAIRPLEX
Four-time Champion and X Games Gold Medalist Nate “The Destroyer” Adams and Two-time Defending Champion Mike Mason amongst the world’s top motocross pros invited to battle head-to-head!
LOS ANGELES (August 24, 2011) – ASA Entertainment is proud to announce that the 9th Annual ASA World Championships of Freestyle Motocross (FMX) will return to the Pomona Fairplex this year during the final weekend of the L.A. County Fair, on Saturday, October 1 (starting at 7:30 pm). The best motorcycle aerialists in the industry, including two-time defending champion Mike Mason (Minden, Nevada) and four-time FMX World Champion Nate “the Destroyer” Adams (Glendale, AZ), have qualified to compete in a series of head-to-head battles for the title of 2011 World Champion of Freestyle Motocross.
In 2010, Adams was in position to capture his 5th World Championships trophy, but in the final round he met Mason (and a few mechanical problems with his bike) that lead to Mason’s winning his second World Championships title in a row. Adams and Mason will have to contend with a full field of the world’s top pros that have qualified for this prestigious contest, including stars such as Taka Higashino, Levi Sherwood, Todd Potter, Mat Rebeaud, Dany Torres, Rob Adelberg, Wes Agee and many more. All the riders will have to throw down their biggest tricks in this unique head-to-head contest that is sure to be filled with the full-throttle intensity that makes these pros the best in the world.
“The progression in freestyle motocross over the past few years has been nothing short of incredible”, said Rick Bratman, CEO of ASA Entertainment Group, the event’s owner and producer. “Fans will not believe what these pros can do on a dirt bike with 100’ back-flip variations, 360’s, no-handed tricks and so much more. Of the 150 events we produce each year, this is my favorite for its artistry and no-guts, no-glory attitude. Fans in So Cal do not want to miss this.”
Tickets are on sale now and only $22.50 for box seats and $18.50 for reserved seats for this one-night only event. They can be purchased at the Fairplex Box Office, all Ticketmaster outlets, Tickemaster.com or by calling 800 745 3000 to charge them by phone. Fair admission is separate.
The ASA World Championships of Freestyle Motocross will be broadcast nationally in November via three hours of coverage on FOX Sports Net (FSN). For more detailed information on the event or the television programming, please visit www.FMXchampionships.com.
