San Francisco, California (October 7, 2013) – For the second year in a row, some of freestyle motocross’ best will meet in San Francisco in front of the town’s city hall to battle it out at the Dew Tour’s FMX Triple Threat contest as part of the Dew Tour Toyota City Championships.
Like last year, the event will give each rider three chances to show how well rounded they are. The contest will have ten riders competing against each other in three rounds. Each round will be a different event including no invert, best whip, and rider’s choice. The rider with the highest combined score total from all three rounds will become this year’s overall winner of the FMX Triple Threat.
It’s a format that both Alli Sports and the fans enjoy. Kenny Mitchell, General Manager of the Dew Tour will be the first to tell you that this format makes for a spectacular event, “Last year’s FMX Triple Threat contest at our debut Toyota City Championships in San Francisco was a huge success. The action of the competition pairs with the backdrop of City Hall for a really spectacular event. The Dew Tour has a strong history with FMX and we’re excited to be working with Carey Hart again this year to bring the format back to San Francisco with a strong roster of riders.”
Headlining the rider line up is last year’s winner Adam Jones. Jones is coming off a strong X Games showing in Los Angeles were he was barely edged out by Taka Higashino for the win. Hungry for more, Jones says he is hoping for a win in San Francisco, “The triple threat format is a great format that challenges every aspect of FMX, I’m really looking forward to doing this contest again this year, and am hoping to bring home another win!”
Joining Jones will be 2012 runner up and current X Games gold medalist, Taka Higashino. Gunning for last year’s top two will be Nate Adams, Mike Mason, Clinton Moore, Kyle Loza, Lance Coury, Blake Williams, and Todd Potter. And last but not least, in a bit of a surprise entry, former Dew Tour winner, Jeremy Stenberg will make his Dew Tour return this weekend.
The FMX Triple Threat event takes place this Sunday October 13th at 12pm PST San Francisco’s City Hall and will air during the Dew Tour Toyota City Championships Recap Show on NBC Sports Net on Monday October 21 at 11pm EST.
