The 14th annual Moto X arena motocross, held at the Kootenai County Fairgrounds, featured many local professional and amateur riders, drawing from as far away as Alberta, Canada and California. Riders as young as 5 raced 50 cc bikes while older teenagers and grown ups rode bikes 250 cc and bigger. The Metal Militia performed freestyle tricks while Spotlight Cheer entertained spectators with their acrobatics.
