First Ever Arena Mountain X Race

Published August 26, 2008

FONTANA, CA (BRAIN)—Don Jackson and Southridge USA have announced the inaugural Arena Mountain X race, presented by Subaru.

This action packed event will showcase world renowned racers in a head-to-head competition within the South Point Equestrian & Event Center in Las Vegas, Nevada, on September 24 during Interbike.

This “invitational only” event will feature an elite selection of the world’s most talented gravity mountain bike racers, including former world champions Eric Carter and Brian Lopes, U.S. national champion Rich Houseman, as well as Chris Kovarik, Cody Warren, Jared Rando, Kirt Voreis, Nathan Rennie and many more.

Legendary commentator Larry “Super Mouth” Huffman will bring fans to their feet as racers will vie for an enormous cash purse. Sponsors include Subaru, ODI, Kenda, IceToolz, The, Mountain Bike Action and TLD.

“It’s an excellent opportunity to bring the exciting world of 4 Cross racing to the masses,” said Don Jackson. “By brining the mountain to the people, we can give the public a chance to watch this breathtaking sport without the need to drive hours away from the city.”

Held in a “Speedway Format," racers will battle down a spectacular man-made mountain cross track built specifically for this event. The “Speedway” format will pit each of the 20 top riders against one another at least once throughout the night.

Doors Open at 7 p.m. Races at 8 p.m.

Call 866-796-7111 or visit www.southpointeventscenter.com for tickets. There will be an after-party with autograph signing. The first 1,000 people in attendance will receive a free multi-tool from IceToolz.
