Among the FMX athletes competing are Carey Hart, Mike Mason, Ronnie Faisst and Todd Potter.
Hart has been at the forefront of professional motocross for most of his life. Beginning as competitive racer, he transitioned to the emerging freestyle disciple 15 years ago.
Since then Hart has been a leading ambassador of the sport worldwide. He’s also been it’s most high-profile personality, known for his multiple X Games performances and his popular tattoo parlor, Hart & Huntington, at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas. And he’s married to rock musician Pink.
“It’s super exciting to have Dew Tour hosting freestyle moto again,” Hart said. “The progression is through the roof. To see how hard they’re pushing it and what they’re able to do — like front flips, 360 back flips, and double flips — it’s just insane.”
For FMX’s return, Dew Tour tapped Hart’s expertise to advance the discipline’s format.
Combining his experience of executing tricks and racing, Hart developed the Speed & Style format to allow both racers and FMX specialists to race a timed run while being judged on speed and level of trick difficulty.
“I’m not getting any younger, so I definitely want to take full advantage and ride as hard as I can,” Hart, 36, said. “Plus I feel like I owe it to the sport and the riders to continue to progress and promote FMX, and to work with Dew Tour to do so is amazing.”
NBC will carry coverage of the Dew Tour on Saturday and Sunday from 4-6 p.m. ET.
