IFMA Freestyle Motocross Launches New Website

Fmx.cc.com Reveals New Look to Freestyle Motocross

AURORA, IL (July 13, 2004) – Clear Channel Entertainment – Motor Sports announced today that the International Freestyle Motocross Association (IFMA) has launched a new website at fmx.cc.com. The new site is more functional, easier to navigate, and more interactive for its viewers.  Freestyle Motocross fans may still get event information as they did on pacefmx.com, but now they will be able to find that information easier.

¿We learned through pacefmx.com that our fans really want to be involved in building the website- we rebuilt the site with that knowledge in mind- giving our fans an opportunity to have a voice as often as possible,¿ said Karin Colucci, Director of Internet Communication for Clear Channel Entertainment.

Fmx.cc.com will be THE destination for information about freestyle motocross.  The new site has results and photos of riders that make the news at today¿s IFMA events, but also has archived results that go back to the beginning year of the IFMA. In addition to each event¿s information and extensive travel information; local market discount coupons, group ticket information, and special promotions are now available for each IFMA Freestyle Motocross event on the new site.

Other new features on the site include rider interviews, interactive games, fan polls, and trivia questions.  Rider Chris Denison will also record his unique adventures in an online column as he gets back on the bike for the first time since his recovery from injuries last year.  A new fan section will give fans a chance to show their dedication to the sport of freestyle motocross by sending in stories and pictures from the IFMA events they have attended.

Fans can access the site by logging onto fmx.cc.com. For the remaining 2004 IFMA schedule, and new 2005 on-sale dates log onto fmx.cc.com for further information.
