During 2003, South Africa and Namibia had the chance to compete against each other to host the first FMX World Cup in Africa that was scheuled to be held in 2004. For this we had to host a freestyle event of note.
We decided to host our event at Langstrand and we called the event: "Desert Storm". We managed to host this event with Mr Mad Mike Jones from the USA, and guess what happened; yup, he performed the first ever backflip trick on African soil. He is known to be the Godfather of freestyle motocross and with good reason.
We came out victorious. :)
