Call in sick, fake the flu or do whatever you have to do to get the day off on December 26th, because Competition Park will be turned upside down when TransWorld Motocross throws their first annual Ride-For-Free Festival from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Competition Park in San Jacinto, California.
The day after Christmas promises to be a full day of fun for moto enthusiasts of all ages. Activities planned for the Festival include completely FREE use of all of Comp Park’s five tracks, free riding lessons from legends Ron Turner and Mike Healey, a freestyle demo with top FMX riders Tommy “Tomcat” Clowers and Jeff Tilton, and autograph signings with tons of top MX pros. Just a few of the riders who have already committed to being there to sign their names as well as spin some laps with their fans are Ryan Hughes, Ernesto Fonseca and Mike LaRocco.
New riders are also invited to attend, and kids between the ages of 6 and 12 will receive a special course in training, safety and beginning skills that will make motocross more enjoyable for them.
Representatives from all of your favorite companies will be at Comp Park to show off their new 2002 merchandise in a special Vendor Midway. Confirmed industry attendeees include Asterisk, Maxima, Sidi, Spy (who will be there with their semi), Thor, Uni, Pro Circuit, FMF, Oakley, O’Neal, Factory Effex, Troy Lee Designs, and Don Joy, as well as several others. Maxxis will also be in the house with their 55-foot trailer to provide complete tire service to attending riders.
Of course, with all of these heavy hitters in the MX world, there will be tons of free products and giveaways throughout the day.
Throughout the day, participants will get the chance to purchase raffle tickets benefiting The Road to Recovery Foundation, and the winner gets a brand-new 250cc MXer.
So don’t forget: mark your calenders and come celebrate the holidays with TWMX the only way that we know how-on our dirt bikes!
