Mat Hoffman Films Freestyle BMX Superstars playing Paintball
August 1, 2002

Mat Hoffman, famous Freestyle BMX rider and host of his own ESPN show, filmed Freestyle BMX Superstars playing in a series of paintball games during the CFB competition at Challenge Park Xtreme. 

The CFB, or Crazy Freakin’ Bikers finals competition, an X-Games qualifier, was held at Challenge Park Xtreme June 21-23rd, 2002. Thousands of spectators watched as the riders competed to win the prize purse or awards for the CFB series. Over a hundred Professional riders appeared at Challenge Park Xtreme to compete in the finals. 

Hoffman films the Freestyle BMX competitions for his ESPN2 television show and adds non-BMX filler to break up the action, and Paintball on Challenge Park Xtreme’s unique playing fields was just what he needed. Mat and his ESPN production crew were filming the finals, which will air in late summer 2002, and in reruns in the fall of 2002. The show will feature the extreme sports superstars playing paintball in a segment.

JT USA sponsored the games, outfitting the superstars in JT jerseys, gloves, and goggles. They played on Bedlam and had a great time. Many vowed to return to Challenge Park Xtreme soon, some to participate in the William Shatner Charity Big Game, others just to play more paintball or ride the skate park again.

Challenge Park Xtreme is the world’s first extreme sports theme park, located just outside Chicago. The $8 million facility, situated on 150 acres, features paintball, BMX racing, skateboarding, Mountain Biking and other extreme-related sports.
