Tough Riding Conditions Make for Tougher Competition
CINCINNATI, Ohio. (January 31, 2004) – IFMA Freestyle Motocross presented by XM Satellite Radio stopped off once again at the U.S. Bank Arena for the fourth year in a row. Track conditions were more technical this weekend because of excess moisture in the dirt. With the tougher conditions, riders knew it would take consistency to win this event. Consistency is what helped Beau Bamburg land in the top 3 each night. Beau’s smooth run consisted of a look-back heart attack , no-footed backflip, and a massive whip. Bamburg stole the show on Friday by beating out number-one qualifier Jake Windham. On Saturday though, Beau couldn’t beat the unstoppable Matt Buyten with his unending bag of no-handed lander tricks.
In the doubles competition, on Saturday- newcomer to the tour, Derek Cook and Mike Mason took the competition with their smooth consistency and synchronized tricks. Mason also won the whip contest on Friday with his always crowd-pleasing whip. Still riding injured, Cody Elkins brought the audience to their feet by ending his clean run with a sterilizer, a trick Cincinnati didn’t see all weekend.
Friday’s IFMA Freestyle Motocross Results:
- Beau Bamburg 91.7
