Moto X Flat Track Austin X Games Rider List

MotorcycleUSA Staff | April 14, 2015
Hot on the heels of Harley-Davidson and the X Games announcement that flat track racing will be an official medal sport at this summer’s Austin X Games, the preliminary list of riders in the inaugural Austin 2015 Moto X Flat Track event has been released. It’s a veritable “Who’s Who” of AMA Pro Flat Track Racing, with several Grand National Champions among the competitors. There’s going to be some serious bar-bangin’ going down in the Lone Star State as only one person can be the first-ever X Games Flat Track gold medalist.“We are excited to announce we’ve partnered with @HarleyDavidson to add #XGamesFlatTrack racing to X Games Austin,” Tweeted the X Games.

As an added bonus, Harley-Davidson is hosting a Q&A session on its Twitter channel with 2013 Pro Flat Track Grand National Champion Brad Baker and reigning GNC title-holder Jared Mees this Thursday, April 16, from 1 to 2 p.m. (CT). Questions can be submitted starting today and throughout the live Q&A session by using #XGamesFlatTrack #RollYourOwn #XGames on Twitter. And keep an eye on the Moto X Flat Track competitors list because so far only the American contingency has been announced.
