Learning to Ride Dirty: Celebrity Crash Course on Motocross at Lake Perris, CA


Oakley’s roots are in motocross.

And our celebrity friends learned this fact…the hard way…last month as the Big O’s rockin’ ‘Learn to Ride’ program took a few on a crash course on dirt bikes.

The program – which teaches celebrities a thing or two about an action sport – brought some of Hollywood’s hottest young stars out to meet O Motocross Stars like top Supercross/AMA Motocross Championship rider Davi Millsaps in the Southern California desert (Lake Perris). But make no mistake, this wasn’t just any meet and greet.

The stars got down and dirty – gearing up in Oakley Motocross gear, mounting dirt bikes and trying their luck at the intense sport.

Who had the exclusive opportunity to learn from some of the sport’s best?

Cannes darling Jessica Chastain took a break from the Hollywood scene after returning from the festival where Tree of Life, her film playing opposite Brad Pitt, took home top honors. While her new film premiered on May 24, the red-haired hottie joined her good friend, actress Jessica Weixler (Peter and Vandy), to hang with the boys of Vampire Diaries: Zach Roerig, Steve McQueen, Michael Trevino and Matt Davis at the Starwest MX Track.

Scott Disick also soaked in a rockin’ outdoor escape before heading to the glitz and glamour of Vegas to celebrate his 28th. Other celebs who got in on the action included AJ Buckley (CSI: NY), Antonio Sabato Jr (The Bold and the Beautiful), Chris Masterson (Malcolm in the Middle), Jordan Masterson (40 Year Old Virgin), Scott Elrod (The Switch), Stephen Amell (Hung), Shaun Sipos (Final Destination 2) and Susie Castillo (TV personality).

It’s safe to say that ‘Learn to Ride’ Motocross went down in grand fashion with some of Tinsel Town’s brightest ready to take on the top 450 Class pros in the Outdoor Nationals series (okay, maybe not). Nonetheless, one dirty fun outing!
