The 2013 TransWorld Motocross SLAM Festival Powered by Rockstar Energy is ready to go. Held this Saturday, October 12th, at Lake Elsinore Motorsports Park, the free to the public event will once again bring motocross to masses and have something to entice every kind of fan, from the casual follower to the dedicated weekend rider. The TransWorld Motocross SLAM Festival has become a part of Southern California's motocross culture, and we are excited to show the growth of this year's event with the open track riding, a Kid's Learn-To-Ride program, vendor row, raffle and prize giveaways, Rockstar Energy FMX Show with Metal Mulisha riders, and the TransWorld SLAM Head-To-Head Pro Race.
Saturday begins with all tracks opening to the public at 8:00 AM, and sessions are separated by skill levels (Mini/Women/Beginner, Novice, Intermediate/Pro) for all ages to enjoy an equal amount of time of the courses. Inside the Kid's Learn-To-Ride area, hosted by Coach2Ride, the next generation of motocross stars will get their start. Young riders will be outfitted in a set of gear, hop on a bike, and receive coaching on the basics by the staff of instructors. All tracks will close in preparation for the SLAM Head-To-Head Pro Race, with riding on the Main track stopping at 2:00 PM, and the Vet and Kid's Learn-To-Ride tracks stopping at 3:00PM.

It would not be a motocross event without the inclusion of the freestyle motocross, and the Rockstar Energy FMX Shows with the Metal Mulisha will have the best FMX riders flying through the air during each demo session. Catch Jimmy Fitzpatrick, Derek Garland, and more during the three shows taking place on Saturday at 10:30AM, 12:15PM, and 2:00PM.
