Schwinn Stunt Team at Wisconsin State Fair

Aug 3, 2005

Back for a second year, the Schwinn Stunt Team joined forces with the Wisconsin State Fair in Milwaukee August 4-14th. Many fans from last year rejoined the team along with tons of new faces proving this event a must see for action sports fans and fair-goers alike. The Schwinn Stunt Team filled the massive piece of Wisconsin real estate with an eleven foot tall half-pipe, an eight foot tall quarter-pipe, and a twenty-five foot long box jump. Mat Sager, Adam Strieby, Coco Zurita, Cesar Flores, and hometown flavor Dan Sieg provided a staggering dose of high flying BMX action while Bo Wade served up the more technical flatland for the rowdy Wisconsin fans. These guys absolutely threw down with every variation of jumping tricks on the box jump including 360 tailwhips, double tailwhips, decades, bike flips, front flips, and backflip-tailwhips. Mat Sager and Coco Zurita showed the fair crowd the vert side flying up to ten feet above the massive eleven foot tall ramp and ripping off tricks like tailwhips, 540s, and flairs. Crowds packed the bleachers hours before each show and autograph sessions lasted well over an hour after each show. The Wisconsin State Fair is a top notch event and the Schwinn Stunt Team looks forward to another smashing success in 2006.
