Total Motorcycle.com press coverage of the Calgary Motorcycle Show
Total Motorcycle is pleased to announce our coverage of the 2004 Calgary Motorcycle Show this year. We will be bringing you the latest new bike photos, industry news, inside information, tips as well as any rumors we hear.
The Calgary Motorcycle Show is now in it’s 3rd great year. We have been there since the 1st one and last year’s (2nd) was even bigger and better. So hopes are high that the 3rd year will surpass the first two years, if that is possible.
UPDATE: We have been invited to a very special media MX presentation and will be bringing you up close and personal photos just as if you were there!
The Calgary Motorcycle Show will feature an exhilarating freestyle motocross (MX) demonstration presented by Kawasaki.
It’s confirmed! 3 Time Canadian Motocross Champion Jean Sebastien Roy will be at the Motorcycle Show all weekend:
Freestyle MX is a fast-paced sport where riders launch themselves off ramps while performing acrobatic tricks, such as the “Kiss of Death”, a trick where riders ‘kiss’ the front fender of their bikes while in the air. The freestyle demonstration headliner is Team Outlaw rider Kris Garwasiuk, Canada’s first professional MX Freestyler and the only Canadian in the sport featured in a video game, Championship Motocross by THQ.
