It’s almost Snow Season in North America. Brace yourself: Oakley’s Freestyle Snowmobilers are itching to charge into action. Rippers Cory Davis and Heath Frisby – both of Winter X Games Fame – are dropping in with a sick edit from Hybrid Color Films. It’s called Black Sunday. And it’s fitting, indeed.
Dany Torres has Freestyle.ch FMX on lock. Heading into the 2012 event in Zurich, he was the reigning three-time winner, and therefore wearing a bull-sized target on his back. Despite any added pressure or stakes, Torres did just as he’s done for years, flying higher and pulling smoother tricks than anyone else in the event. Flintstone flip, turn down, dead body indy flip and an execution flip. All pulled beautifully. Dany Torres: four-time champ.
Ed Carpenter Racing is officially on the map. The newly formed team, created by Oakley IndyCar Driver Ed Carpenter, just broke through into victory lane with a resounding triumph from their owner at Auto Club Speedway in Fontana. “This feels great for a brand new team that just started in November,” Carpenter said, rocking his Oakley eyewear, racing firesuit, racing gloves and racing boots. “I feel this team stuck together through the ups and downs of the first year and this win is a tribute to their hard work.” The work definitely paid off. Edging fellow Oakley star Dario Franchitti after leading for a race-high 62 laps, Ed eventually pulled away after turn two in the final lap to claim his second career victory.
