For Immediate Release
(Malibu, CA, May 9, 2007) "FMX Riot 2 - Swingarm City," the all HD freestyle moto x documentary was awarded "Best Theatrical Competiton and Race" film last night at the 7th annual Xtremey Awards, held at the OC Pavilion in Santa Ana, CA.
"I want to express my sincerest thanks to everyone who voted for our project,and it was an honor to be among such great films in all categories" said Paul Taublieb, CEO of MXi and producer of the film. "My gratitude goes out to Rush HD for their support of 'FMX Riot' and of course to the amazing Docy Andrews of Impact Video who put on an incredible event -- not to mention her sizzling performance with the 'Imps' last night. But most of all, credit goes to the riders who laid it on the line for 'Riot', and to the athletes who risk so much to make all action sports films possible. They are the true stars, we chronicle their stories."
"FMX Riot 2" took place in Cainville, UT, and featured riders Mike Metzger, Mike Mason, Mat Rebeaud, Drake McElroy, Larry Linkogle, Myles Richmond, Todd Potter and winner, Dustin Miller, in this event where the riders lived together, rode together, pushed each other and judged each other. Like the 2006 Xtremey-award winning "FMX Riot: Duel in the Desert", "FMX Riot 2: Swingarm City" was shot entirely in high definition for the Voom network's Rush HD channel, with executive producers Mark DeAngelis, Greg Rossetti and Rob Faris, producer Paul Taublieb, director Chris Merritt, event producer/host Tes Sewell, competition director Dave Butts, and HD videography by Sean Aaron, Ryan Young, and JP Beeghly.
The Riot series continues, as "FMX Riot 3 - Dubai: Showdown in Boomtown" will be released later this year, and the brand will soon to be extended into other action sports in lifestyle-driven, rider-judged events for Voom's Rush HD.
