MotoSport employee Brett Cue is one of the headliners for the Hart and Huntington FMX-MAS Big Whip Invitational on Saturday at Sycuan Casino in El Cajon, CA. Cue takes his talents against other big names in freestyle motocross like Lance Coury and Todd Potter, among others. The winner is not determined by text votes or sitting judges but rather by the applause of the crowd.
"I'm riding in Southern California all week leading up to the contest considering I haven't hit a ramp since Monster Cup," Cue said. "Anytime I get the opportunity to be a part of something like this, I jump at it."
Each contestant who places wins money but the winner takes home $10,000.
"No matter what happens this weekend, I couldn't be more thankful to be in the mix and riding with some of the best guys in the world," Cue said. "Big thanks goes out to Carey Hart, Kenny Watson and the whole RCH team for putting on the event as well as Motosport.com for the support to bring me to where I am!"
Adding to the excitement for fans are appearances by Ricky Carmichael, Brock Tickle, Carey Hart and Josh Hill. Unknown Industries is putting on a freestyle demo. The event is free and open to the public to anyone 18 years and older.
