FULLERTON, CALIF. (September 30, 2013) - "The History of the Sport" returns to the little screen when MAVTV begins re-airing seasons one, two and three of The Motocross Files (MXF) on October 4th with season one's inaugural show on "Bad Brad" Lackey. Lackey was America's first World Champion and only 500cc World Champion when he concluded a 10-year quest to win that title.
Developed and originally aired in the fall of 2005 on Speed, MXF broke new ground with sports documentary story telling with high production values utilizing theatrical music score and pioneering the use in sports productions of "3D animated photographs" seen today in so many shows and commercials. Over 21 episodes have been produced for the series to date and Producer/Director, Todd Huffman feels there are even more great motocross stories out there to tell.
"We have been blessed to get to know these motocross legends and bring their inspiring and emotional stories to the viewers," said Todd Huffman, the series' Producer and Director at Pipeline Digital Media (PDM). "With MAVTV's new direction, energy and momentum we feel we have truly found a home for the series."
