UCS Inc. creates and supply’s ESPN X Games 15 with innovative Standards for the MotoX Step Up Event.

Day One of the ESPN X Games 15 begins tonight featuring the new and improved MotoX Step Up Final.

Los Angeles, CA, July 30, 2009: Tonight at 9pm on ESPN 2 see the new innovative Step Up Standards that UCS designed and manufactured specifically for X Games 15. “Step Up is simple. It's a motorcycle high jump, or pole vaulting with a motorcycle instead of a pole. Riders hit a 12-foot vertical wall to catapult body and machine over a rod that loosely rests upon a set of uprights.” (Smith, 2009). UCS implemented the unique design used for Pole Vaulting Standards, but instead will accommodate heights up to 40 feet. The Step Up Standards were built using aluminum-alloy weighing nearly 400 lbs. each and will rest flat on the ground beside both sides of the dirt hill. They will also be using the UCS/Spirit crossbar that has been used in 4 Olympic Games, NCAA championships, USA Track & Field championship, and many other major events around the world.

For Release 9 a.m. EDT, July 29, 2009
