XDL BBQ & Industry Night at Bert's Mega Mall on June 17

Los Angeles, CA (June 8, 2010) -- Stunt riding has been around for well over a decade. XDL is in its fifth season. The sport is doubling in size almost every year. But have you ever asked yourself what you really know about it? What are the bike trends? How are they influencing the mainstream? What about riding gear? What happened to all the kids that used to stunt in a t-shirt? Now they are riding in proper gear. But which gear and why? And what do they really want? Where are the business opportunities? XDL BBQ & Industry Night at Bert's Mega Mall is designed to help you find answers to those and many other questions.

We realize it is short notice but since athletes and staff are in town for XDL Los Angeles on June 18 & 19, and Bert's Mega Mall is being a very generous host, we thought we'd give it a try.
