O’s long-time driver/owner spent a few hours with the victims – some of who were listed as critical upon their arrival at the hospital – to provide comfort and some signed gear.

    It’s more than official: The game has changed. When multiple generations of Oakley family motocross riders – like AMA Hall of Famer Mike Bell (currently heads up Oakley’s optics program), legend Ricky Carmichael, Ryan Villopoto, Ryan Dungey, James “Bubba” Stewart and Eli Tomac – come together to mark the dramatic beginning to a new era in MX optic design, you know there’s something real…far beyond industry smoke and mirrors. On January 17, a scene that unreal became a reality. Gathering on a magical night filled with anticipation and buzz, Oakley’s stars collided with motocross industry media, factory teams, MX accounts, special guests and O team members for the official unveiling of the Airbrake MX goggle.
