Meet the High-Flyers of Hot Wheels Monster Trucks Live

As if the awesome monster trucks weren’t enough, there’s so much more to the Hot Wheels Monster Trucks Live tour! While the trucks bring the thunder, our freestyle motocross stars dazzle like lightning.

What is freestyle motocross?

Simply put, motocross combines off-road motorcycle racing with incredible mid-air tricks that include a 70-foot jump across the arena floor! As you can imagine, it takes a special kind of athlete to hit the ramp at 30 miles per hour and jump 35 feet in the air, and that’s exactly the kind of performers Hot Wheels has in the fold this tour.
