Press Release | April 23, 2009

US Freestyle Motocross, Inc., the organizers of the acclaimed Jagermeister Freestyle Motocross halftime show performing at each Monster Energy AMA Supercross event this season, have announced that “the Godfather” himself, multi-time X-Games Gold Medalist and freestyle motocross originator, Mike Metzger, will join “Cowboy” Kenny Bartram and the “Jager crew” at the final two Supercross events of the season!  Always one of the highlights of the night, the Jagermeister Freestyle Show featuring the incredible “backflip train” has sent this season’s Supercross crowds into a frenzy at each stop on the tour. “I’m back!” exclaims Metzger, who hasn’t jumped in Las Vegas since he made history by back flipping over the famous Caesar’s Palace Fountains in 2006.  A Supercross veteran himself, Metzger points out, “I am stoked to be riding at Supercross again!  It’s going to be a blast riding with the guys on the USFMX/Jagermeister/KTM team.  We are going to go off!” Metzger will join Bartram and fellow freestylers Thomas Alves and Dan Newth at Supercross this weekend in Salt Lake City then travel to Las Vegas for the Finals on May 2.  The Jagermeister FMX show goes off just prior to the Main Event. Don’t miss the Godfather, the Cowboy and their Jagermeister Posse- it’s going to turn Supercross upside-down!  Team USFMX would like to thank the following companies for their support throughout the 2009 Monster Energy Supercross Season: Jagermeister, KTM, THOR, VP Fuels, FMF, Smith Optics, Dunlop Tires.
