The brothers Brunelle from Geared Up Productions entertain the crowd during some downtime with a little up-in-the-air acrobatic action.
More airborne hi-jinks from Geared Up. In this maneuver, the flying guy starts out standing on the shoulders of the rider, launching off once the rider lifts an endo.

Recently engaged Cat and Steve of Evasive Actions get a head start on their honeymoon with this tandem wheelie on their Super Chicken.

Bring the Payne--Pure Bred Riders' Rick Payne rolling a tall endo.
The 15 finalists.
An arrow-straight handstand from Aaron Brunelle, one of the moves he used to help him hold down second-place overall in the NSRA National Championships competition.
Another over-the-top watchtower variation from Jacob "Monkey Boy" Brunelle.
"Downtown" Joe Brown, the weekend's big winner, looking relaxed as can be rolling another sit-down no-hander. This tiny thumbnail hardly does Brown's recently redone bike justice--with new deep-blue paint, a white-coated frame and wheels and intricate ghost flames applied to the exhaust can, Brown's stunt iron wouldn't be at all out of place in one of the custom bike galleries in this magazine.
John Leavell almost into a switchback atop his still-straight (mostly!) F4i.
"Sho Nuff" and all-star Matt Gorka get cozy at an afterparty.
Although some might consider it a bit presumptuous to bill your first-ever event as "National Championships," the newly formed National Stunt Riding Association backed up this bit of braggadocio by attracting some of the big names in stunting from the East Coast and Midwest (not to mention the stunt stronghold of Florida, where the event was held) down to the Gainesville Raceway for its inaugural event. In the end it was Miami heavyweight "Downtown" Joe Brown wheelying his pimped-out CBR929RR to victory, though Geared Up's Aaron Brunelle (2nd) and Vertical Outlaw's Joe Dryden (3rd) kept Brown busy all day long. Here are the highlights.
