Freestyle Motocross (FMX) features high-flying backflips and other exciting stunts on a dirt-covered ramp that propels the riders into the air. Known for tricks that take the riders high overhead, FMX is No. 1 on the list of two-wheel entertainment.
Streetbike Stunt Show features Joe Vertical, Tony Levesque, Sean Parrish and Jeff Doane – four of the top stunt riders in the country. The factory rider for Aprilia, Joe Vertical has well over 20 podium finishes in various disciplines of the sport all over the world. Tony Levesque is an internationally known performer and action sports athlete who has achieved some of the biggest honors in action sports. Sean Parrish and Jeff Doane complete this fearsome foursome for a stunt show complete with excitement and thrills.
The Speed and Style Challenge is a combination of road racing and freestyle. Streetbike riders will be judged based on their speed around a challenging road course which will be combined with the riders’ trick score. WyoTech students will handle tire changes and bike adjustments during pit stops during the racing action.
Stunt rider Tony Levesque said, “We’re excited about working with WyoTech. I’ve had the chance to tour the campus and it’s a great school and an awesome venue for the Bike Bash. I’m looking forward to working with WyoTech for many years to come.”

Jarrod Tousley has always enjoyed working with his hands, and bought his first vehicle off a guy for 200 bucks. ...
Will Rossmeyer I always had a mechanical background in automotive, but going to WyoTech helped me get up to speed on new motorcycle technology much faster. I knew how to turn wrenches, but this really brought me up to speed on bikes.
