Dozens of young patients, their families, and members of the community were thrilled on Wednesday, May 28, by the daring stunts performed by some of the best freestyle Motocross riders at the 11th annual Big Air Kids Fair at Loma Linda University Children’s Hospital.

The riders, Jimmy Fitzpatrick, Scotty Stephens, and Kenny Bell, launched into the air from a ramp to gasps and cheers from the crowd, and performed backflips, twists, and other fearless aerial maneuvers, before landing on an awaiting ramp, in front of the hospital.

After the performance, the riders, along with other members of the Motocross community, posed for photos, signed autographs, and visited the units of patients who could not come out, and distributed toys and Moto swag. The visiting Motocross stars and special guests included: Andy Bell, Ricky James, Sara Price, Trey Canard, Will Hahn, Zach Osborne, Justin Bogle, Kyle Cunningham, Cole Seely, and Blake Baggett.

Steve Bauer, former professional Motocross rider who founded Big Air Kids Fair in 2003, expressed thanks to the patients and their families for coming out to watch and support Big Air Kids Fair.

“This event is a wonderful opportunity for the members of the motorcycle industry to give back to the community that supports it, and helps us give some young patients a reason to smile,” he said.
