The ever-spectacular Freestyle Motocross (FMX) program of the Supermotocross Monster Energy
presented by Coors Light and Parts Canada
/Thor, will innovate this year as the event organizers of the most popular sporting event of the fall in Quebec, have hired Canadian veteran rider Paul Smith to choreograph and direct the FMX contest.
On Saturday October 2, fans at the Olympic Stadium will witness the impressive jumps and stunts of Charlie Pagès, Beau Bamburg, Brody Wilson, Ben Milot and a fifth flyer to be named, all orchestrated by Smith. American Scott Murray, who will perform his unique double backflips during an exhibition presentation, will join the FMX riders during their performances.
“The Freestyle program will be one of the high points of the evening,” promises Jean-Sébastien Roy, the Supermotocross Monster Energy official spokesperson. “It will precede the grand finales around 9 p.m. and fans should make sure they are back in their seats in order to witness the prowess of the guest flyers.”
The 2010 Freestyle contest brings back to Montréal, French Ace Charlie Pagès, who made his first appearance last year at the Supermotocross. He will face the busy Quebec flyer Ben Milot and three American masters who will be making their first visit to the Olympic Stadium. Beau Bamburg, who is renowned for his unique massive whips, is an Oregon native and a veteran rider who has entered several international Freestyle Motocross events including the X-Games. Massachusetts-born Brody Wilson is famous for holding tricks longer with more extension than most of the field. This season, he has competed on the European IFMXF Tour, the X-Games and at the Madrid X-Fighters. The name of the final invited Freestyle rider will be named shortly. He will also be an American.
As for Scott Murray, who hails from Michigan, he secured his reputation in the world of Freestyle Motocross back in 2007 when he executed his first successful double backflip in front of a large crowd at a Supercross event in Genoa, Italy. Since then, the FMX rider do not enter Freestyle competitions, but performs double backflips in exhibition tours as his jumps require special ramps that help him stay up in the air for a longer period of time.
