|Freestyle Motocross appears at Ralph Engelstad Arena |
Live Nation Motor Sports announces that UND faculty, staff and students receive a UND discount for Freestyle Motocross, which will appear for one night only, Saturday, Jan. 5, at the Ralph Engelstad Arena. UND faculty, staff, and students will receive $7 off the regular adult tickets now through the event date.
Freestyle Motocross riders will throw their 250cc bikes an unbelievable 35 feet in the air. Numerous riders will participate in a no-holds barred competition, throwing out some of the most awe-inspiring tricks. The stunts performed include a variety of thrills such as the superman seat grab, rock solid, backflip and more. The riders participate both in a 45-second preliminary run as well as a 60-second semi-final run, intended to narrow the field down to the final four. The "run" consists of riders hitting metal take-off ramps, launching 30 to 40 feet into the air and landing on customized metal landing ramps. The finalists then try to put it all together for an 80-second final run. The last man sitting in the "hot seat" is the one who can get the crowd at their feet by getting the biggest air.
UND faculty, staff, and students can purchase tickets for $13 at the Ralph Engelstad box office only. Please have your employee number or student ID with you at the time of purchase. Regular adult ticket prices are $20. Kids seats are just $5.
