(Lake Forest, CA June 22, 2010) Georgia Borne Freestyle Entertainment is excited to announce that Discovery Channel will feature Pro-Athlete Streetbike Freestyler, Josh Borne, on Ultimate Car Build Off on July 19, 2010 at 9 p.m.
Josh Borne had the unique opportunity to provide Discovery Channel engineering advice on a colossal wheelie machine build when two Detroit garages, Monkeywrench Racing and Voodoo Choppers, went head to head for a one-of-a-kind build off challenge. Borne used his engineering background and experience from Kettering University and General Motors to help contestants create the ultimate machine. Monkeywrench Racing and Voodoo Choppers were tasked with merging two motorcycles into a single four-wheeled vehicle in an effort to win $100,000. The garages goal: to wheelie the longest distance down Michigan's historic Grosse IIe Municipal Airport runway.

Not only was Borne Discovery Channel's expert in the garages, but he also taught hosts Andrew Compri-Pichard a.k.a. ACP (X-Games Pro-Rally Racer) and Lou Santiago (Top Hot Rod Fabricator), the basics of proŽstreetbike freestyle. Training took place on beautiful Belle Isle in Detroit, Michigan and protective gear was generously provided to the hosts and contestants by Josh Borne's sponsor, Scorpion Sports Inc. Even Chip Foose joined the fun and was fully impressed with Borne's technical grasp of the extreme sport. Foose commended the professionalism of the sport and complimented Borne on his freestyle abilities.

If you like fabricated cars, hot rod garages and out of this world, colossal machines you do not want to miss an episode of this amazing show. Beginning June 21, tune in on Mondays at 9 p.m. on Discovery Channel and be sure to watch Pro-Athlete Streetbike Freestyler, Josh Borne on July 19, 2010, at 9 p.m. For more information on proŽathlete, Josh Borne or to view Ultimate Car Build Off's official trailer visit Borne Freestyle Entertainment online at www.bornefreestyle.com.
