BMX BIKE SHOWS 7pm and 9pm on Fair Midway
Visitors to the Hopkins County Fair will be treated to a performance by three world-class BMX athletes, Chris Gerber, Chad Newman, and Rob Armour.
The three are a part of Solution Action Sports (SAS), a sports entertainment company, and have résumés that include the X-Games, Mountain Dew Tour, and international championship competitions.
SAS also partners with schools and performs at assemblies, promoting anti-bullying, anti-drug, and healthy lifestyle efforts.
Gerber, the senior member of the team, “has been in the BMX industry for over 15 years and has done it all,” according to the SAS website. “From major contests to nationwide tours, he has the experience that makes him a true asset to the Solution Action Sports team. His stack of tricks is a mile high and he is a true entertainer that has pushed the limits of what can truly be done on a BMX bike.” Recently, Gerber competed in the (Mountain) Dew Tour as well.
The SAS site also speaks to the career of Rob Armour: “Rob is one of BMX’s rising Stars. Sponsored by Diamondback Bicycles he has been on the Dew Tour Circuit for the past two years. Rob has been on a busy schedule this past year competing in every major contest in America along with events in Europe and Asia. He recently just finished 2nd in the Chinese X-Games in both park and dirt.” Armour returned to the US from Cologne, Germany last week after competing in the BMX Worlds, representing the USA.
Hardin and his athletes will be 'rippin’ some 80 foot gaps on their dirt bikes,”. See More About Them Below:
