Freestyle Motocross

In addition to the top performers of the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association, attendees will be treated to a heart-stopping Motorcycle act performance by Justin “Airtime” Ayres. Ayres grew up working on cattle ranches competing at a very early age in the bareback events.  At age ten, he started racing motocross.  By 20 he advanced to the more daring performances called freestyle motocross.  The traveling Garden Circus took notice and brought Ayres into their troop for their half-year country tours.  In 2011, thrilling audiences with his multiple variations of the back flip, the Flying U Rodeo Company pulled him into their tour.  He has gone on to be judged a champion in this field.“When I want to relax and take a short break from my death-defying performances,” says Ayres, “I still love to ride my horses.”

Airtime Ayres joins the Charity Rodeo where cowboys and cowgirls will compete for prizes in bareback riding, steer wrestling, team roping, saddle bronco riding, calf and team roping, barrel racing, bull riding and best all-around. Participants will compete for hefty prize money and points, depending on their placement in each event, which help them to qualify for the National Finals in Las Vegas in December.
