Yes folks, we got to see stunt riders! Alex Flores and Jason Pullen were there doing all manner of things, from balancing stunts, stoppies, wheelies, and jumps, to riding a modified dirt-bike that could roll upside down. I honestly wasn't expecting that much. I had seen stunting only once before at MotoGP when I saw a race at Laguna Seca. Christian has made me watch stunting videos occassionaly on TV, but I hadn't seen stunting up close and personal the way I watched it today. Seeing the burnouts up close, smelling the burning rubber, and watching the facial expressions of the stunt riders adds a whole new dimension to stunting.

In addition to the entertaining stunt riders, the CHP gave a demonstration of their motorcycle cops riding their BMW R1200 bikes through a cone slalom course, after which anyone could try their hand through the cones.
