Professional Freestyle Motocross Riders
Make no mistake about it. Freestyle Motocross riding is a tough gig. Apart from the obvious danger in riding a 250lb motorcycle off large ramps and floating up to 80 feet in the air while hanging perilously off the bike, the stunts and tricks take a long time to master and require an enormous level of skill.
Freestyle Motocross is an extreme action sport that has grown to become a universal phenomenon! Freestyle Motocross is a perfect blend of athletic ability and extreme stunt competitions that will have fans sitting on the edge of their seat.
Professional freestylers revel in the opportunity to showcase their talents as well as being able to indulge in their greatest passion - riding motorcycles. They continually strive to push the limits of their machine and physical ability, aiming to go bigger and higher with each event while coming up with spectacular new tricks never before attempted.
The Life & Leisure Expo performance will participate in intense execution, throwing out some of the most death defying tricks ever seen offering spectators a dangerous display of actions.
About Kris Foster.... Kris Foster has been building his passion for riding since the early age of three. He grew up in the rolling hills of a small town in British Columbia’s interior, Chase BC. Kris spent countless hours idolizing FMX videos, such as Crusty Demons, Terrafirma and Wrathchild, which lead him to copy his idols and create his own video at the young age of 12 which planted the seeds of Freestyle from an early age. Kris’s parents Rick and Donna support his future goals in every way and soon helped him race at 12 years old. At age fifteen Kris began racing in the Pro class. After a successful run in the Canadian Arenacross championships and a Supercross Moto win in Liverpool he began to look for new ways to experience his sport. In the midst of endless natural terrain in Kamloops, Freestyle and Freeriding was the next step forward for his career. With a strong background in Mountain biking and BMX, Kris always knew he wanted to make edits that push the boundaries of Freeriding while incorporating a style of all three sports. His dreams became reality when Monster Energy’s “Limelite” gave Kris the opportunity he needed and he took the Moto industry by storm with a 165’ step-down. Kris put countless hours of hard work and dedication into this video which paid off as it earned him a spot in the X-Games of 2014 in Austin Texas. Kris’s opportunity at the X-games proved his talent as he was 4th place finisher in Speed and Style.
2015 holds a promising outlook and Foster has a few goals in mind for this year. Locking down a place in South California this past winter has opened the doors of opportunity for filming and training with some of the best in the business. Kris hopes to showcase his talents and build on them in this next year.
