KELOWNA – Professional freestyle motocross riders from Kelowna and Kamloops are featured in a short but exciting promotion released on YouTube this week.

Kris Garwasiuk of Kelowna and Kris Foster of Kamloops are two of the busiest FMX performers in North America. They also dazzle crowds at extreme sports events like Kelowna’s Centre of Gravity.

Stacked Films released the 2:30 minute video Tuesday, Oct. 5 to promote Global FMX.

Garwasiuk is one of the oldest riders on the circuit and the first Canadian to turn pro at 15 years old.  A Canadian Championships winner, he has also been featured in two video games and has competed in the X-Games.

Foster began racing in the Pro class at only 15 years old and competed in the Canadian Arenacross Championships and Supercross Moto.
