The "Midget Farrelly" Competition Team has been seen in action on television, in theatres and doing store demomtrations throughout the Eastern States.
Their amazing ability (it has taken a good deal of practice) has created a sensation wherever they have performed.
The star of the Team is ten year old Chris Johnson from California, a tremendous rider who has been mainly responsible for the advancement of the rest of the Team.
These boys have been responsible for the testing of the new models and without their help it would have taken a lot longer to put the finished product on the market.
