Chris Ridgway Misses Win by 34 Seconds at VORRA Desert Race

He Prepares for 2010 X-Games as Reigning Gold Medalist

APPLE VALLEY, CA – July 21, 2010:  Chris Ridgway participated in last weekends VORRA (Valley Off Road Racing Association) Fallon 250 desert race in the Trent Fab buggy and placed 2nd by a mere 34 seconds.  “It was a fast course, and we had no issues until the last lap when we got a flat.  When we got out to change it, we had lost the tool kit that had the lug wrench in it!  We jumped back in and had to run 20 miles on the Raceline Wheel to the next pit where one of our competitor’s pit crews changed it for us,” said Ridgway.  “While in the pits, we got passed for the lead and had to drive the last 10 miles at warp speed, but it wasn’t enough.”

This was Ridgway’s first time driving at night, but he had no issues with shadows due to the two beaming Rigid light bars on the car.  The Trent Fab buggy performed flawlessly on this 250 mile course with the Griffin Radiator keeping the car cool in the July 100 plus desert temperatures.

Ridgway also rides dirt bikes and is working towards capturing his 3rd Adaptive MotoX Gold Medal at the 2010 Summer X-Games in Los Angeles, CA on July 29, 2010.  Riding his 2010 RMZ450, Ridgway will take on the X-Games amazing track with insane jumps.  “Last year the finish line jump was by far the biggest jump I have ever done in my life.  I lost my leg from a jump gone bad,” commented Ridgway.  “But instead of walking away, it is pushing me to work that much harder.”

The Adaptive Moto-X games will be held on Thursday, July 29, 2010 at the L.A. Coliseum in Los Angeles, CA.  For a schedule of the 2010 Summer X-Games visit
