Bikes over Baghdad is a show made up of some of the best action sports athletes, announcers and ramp builders in bicycle motorcross or BMX -- an extreme form of bike racing.

After entertaining troops in Iraq, the show is now kicking off its first stateside tour in Chicago. We spoke with Bikes over Baghdad founder Christian Schauf and Iraq Army Vet, Staff Sergeant Anthony Helsell.

Bikes Over Baghdad returned from their fourth trip to Iraq where they visited American military bases to perform high-energy, action-packed stunt shows as a thank you to our troops.

Bikes Over Baghdad is kicking off their first stateside tour here in Chicago at the Craftsman Experience located at 233 W. Huron Street before heading to various military bases across the U.S.

The first stunt show Friday, August 12 and they will be performing two more shows Saturday August 13 at 2 pm and 5 pm. You can stop by to meet the pros in between shows.

If you can't make it down to the event, you can watch all of the action live on Craftsman's Facebook page throughout the entire day.
