ASPEN, CO, (1/31/05) – Stars of the freestyle motocross movement took a break from the 2005 Winter X Games to participate in the second annual Jeep ® Adventure Comp, an event that featured athletes and media tearing up and down Buttermilk Mt. in a timed competition behind the wheel of the Jeep Wrangler Rubicon Unlimited.
From Mulisha members Brian Deegan & Ox Kargola, to Carey Hart, Beau Bamburg and Cowboy Kenny Bartram – and the First Lady of Supercross herself, Jamie Little – motocross was well represented at the Jeep Adventure Comp. In fact, Deegan and Little walked away with top honors – Deegan laying down the best overall time for the men, Little for the women.
Noteworthy: Jeep brand will donate $2,000 to the Clayton Memorial Foundation in the name of the motorsports winners—Deegan ($1000) with the top overall event time and Tomi Ahmaslo ($1000) with the second fastest motorsports class time. Little’s top overall time for the women’s division and media will benefit the Boarding for Breast Cancer Foundation with a $1000 donation.
Additional motocross racers and media that jumped at the opportunity to rally the Jeep vehicles included: Canadian Nationals and snocross stars Blair Morgan and Mike Island (defending Sno-X champ), Outdoor Nationals MX crossover racer and snowboard legend Jim Rippey (fastest snowboarder and second overall to Deegan) and French motocross photographers Chris Caprin and Vincent Boudet.
