Activision MotoX Game Announced

Company Signs Undefeated X-Games Gold Medallist Travis Pastrana To Headline New Game Titled Travis Pastrana's Pro MotoX SANTA MONICA, Calif., April 9. Activision Inc. is expanding its industry leading Activision O2 brand lineup with the development of a new motocross game that will be headlined by three-time undefeated Summer X-Games freestyle gold medallist, Travis Pastrana. The sixth title to be marketed under the Activision O2 brand, Travis Pastrana's Pro MotoX(TM) will feature other top riders including Mike Brown, Tommy Clowers, Ernesto Fonseca and Carey Hart. "Travis Pastrana is undoubtedly one of the hottest motocross riders on the circuit today and we are extremely excited to have just signed with him," states Kathy Vrabeck, executive vice president, Activision Global Publishing and Brand Management. "The popularity of motocross events worldwide has continued to rise with attendance numbers reaching all-time highs. As television coverage and event sponsorship has increased, motocross has become one of the fastest growing sectors in motor sports. Activision's partnership with Travis will allow us to deliver a comprehensive, authentic motocross experience that lets players compete in both freestyle riding and head-to-head racing action." The youngest motocross champion to win a national title, Travis Pastrana became a sports phenomenon on the amateur circuit in 1992 at the age of 9 and continued his winning streak with five national amateur championships. In 1998, with the introduction of competitive freestyle riding, he was the first World Freestyle Champion. Since then, Pastrana has dominated the sport of freestyle motocross having never lost a competition in which he has entered. In 2001, he won gold medals at both the Summer X-Games and Gravity Games. In addition to Pastrana, the game will also feature Mike Brown, the 2001 AMA AMA/Chevy Trucks U.S. MX Series champion; Tommy Clowers, the gold medallist in step-up at the 2000 and 2001 Summer X-Games and the current step-up record holder in the Guinness Book of World Records; Ernesto Fonseca, the 2001 AMA 125cc West Region Supercross champion and 1999 AMA Motocross/Supercross Rookie of the Year; and Carey Hart, the first motocross rider to pull off a backflip during competition.
