MEEKER I Bringing X-Game type freestyle motocross action to local Colorado venues and events, Mobile FMX will be stopping in Meeker on their Colorado-Utah-Nevada tour for the 2012 Range Call Fourth of July celebrations.
Freestyle motocross has grown in popularity over the last ten years with the explosion of television publicity for X-Games and Nitro Circus. What makes Mobile FMX unique and special to Colorado is the fact that the owner and all riders are Colorado hometown boys who got their start as toddlers on Colorado dirt and who have made freestyle motocross their lives by traveling the United States as well as out of the country on professional tours. In person, it is hard to imagine that these boys will fly hundreds of pounds of metal and rubber more than 75 feet from a ramp to a metal landing while reaching heights of 35 feet, but to further imagine them performing tricks like “holy grabs” where the bike and rider separate and free float through the air or backflips where the riders rotate 360 degrees to the landing is heart-stopping!
On this leg of their summer 2012 tour, four riders will be performing. First, owner and rider, Toby Whittington, out of Montrose, Colo., has been riding for 30 years. A member of the Ramp it Up Tour which covered the United States, Toby turned his passion into a career by creating his own ramps and landing and creating a Colorado tour where he can enjoy small-town family fun. Second, Chas Burbridge from Nucla, Colo. has been riding for 20 years and travels from Canada to Mexico to perform on his dirtbike. Third, Eric Farr from Fruita, Colo. has also been riding for 20 years and is a member of the first Factory Motocross team. Lastly, Curt Beauchamp from Hotchkiss, Colo. is the newbie to the Mobile FMX tour but not to freestyle motocross.
With non-stop, heart-pumping action, Mobile FMX will keep you on the edge of your seat deciding whether to gasp or scream. Following the performance, all Mobile FMX riders will be available to sign autographs and meet with the fans; T-shirt and poster merchandise will be available for purchase as well. Meeting fans and spending time with locals who are ecstatic about what they do is truly why Mobile FMX exists.
