X Gamers Coming To East Texas

We've seen them on TV, here's your chance to see some of the top X Gamers in person as part of the annual Texas Pro Challenge. The wildly popular event finally returns for the 14th year. It was postponed in September because of the hurricanes. The event features some of the nations most talented riders, including David Vuillemin, Mike Brown and Josh Demuth in motocross, and four top free style pros, including X Games freestyle champ Chuck Carothers. Freestyle rider Derek Cook talked about some of the tricks you'll see this weekend.

"You can see kisses of death, rock solids, cliff hangers, double grabs," said Cook.  "I mean you name it, the staple for all the tricks in freestyle is going to be thrown down Saturday night.  It's just crazy how much people enjoy watching it, seeing a bunch of crazy guys jump a ramp and then let go of a bike in mid-air like 35 feet high, so it's entertaining to watch."

The Texas Pro Challenge is Saturday at Swan Raceway Park off Highway 110 northwest of Tyler. Gates open at 2:30, the first race at 3:00. $10 for adults, $5 for kids 6-14. Children under six are free.
