ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI)– You might do a double take at the Edward Jones Dome this weekend when you see these Supercross riders flying through the air.

“Can you tell them apart?” asks Patrick Clark.
“Yeah,” says racing Mom Terri Gulley.
“When they’re riding?” asks Clark.
“Yeah, ah, well they got a number on them when they’re riding so that’s kind of cheating,” laughs Gulley.

Racing mom Terri Gulley will keep both eyes open on her boys this weekend.
They’ll be two of the 22 competing Saturday in the Monster Energy Supercross.

“Sometimes we say the same thing,” says Aaron Gulley.
“Yeah, we say the same thing a lot but we don’t feel,” says Adam Gulley. “When he has pain I don’t have pain and when I have pain he doesn’t have pain so that’s a good thing I guess.”

“There are several sets of brothers,” adds Mom Terri. “But there’s never been a set of twin brothers race the Super cross series. So they’re the first.”

The one thing to remember about this dirt riding duo is that they get some big air.
The Gulley family is from Jonesburg, Missouri about an hour from St. Louis.
And while you might need to set your DVR to determine who’s who with the double vision racing team, for Adam and Aaron, they’re more about the singularity of the sport.

“It’s all on you,” says Adam Gulley. “There’s no team sport involved. It’s all on you so if you mess up, it’s on you. You don’t have to worry about somebody else.”

“It’s a constant adrenaline rush,” says Aaron Gulley. “You got out and hit these 65 to 70 foot jumps and you’re 30 feet in the air, that’s fun.”

For the boys yes, but for mom and dad, not so much.

“Yeah, and I asked a Mom a long time ago, a lady that we knew that was always at the races and went to everything with her boys,” says Mom Terri. “I said, ‘When do you get to stop holding your breath?’ She said, ‘You don’t.'”

Especially when your boys on their bikes are sailing along, three stories up in the air.

Our news slogan is: “Coverage You Can Count On.” We quite frankly are too busy to worry about who gets the credit. Our main concern is serving the viewer.

We go where the stories take us. Whether it be Washington, D.C when a Belleville man opened fire during a congressional baseball game practice or to Puerto Rico where local Ameren crews restored power after more than 5 months in the dark.

But our early morning crew also knows how to have some fun! Our strong commitment to the communities we serve is highlighted with our Friday neighborhood shows.

Our investigative unit consists of three reporters. Elliott Davis focuses on government waste, Chris Hayes is our investigative reporter, and Mike Colombo is our consumer reporter. They work in unison with the news department by sharing resources and ideas.

We continue to cover breaking news aggressively and relied on our seasoned journalists to make a difference with the stories we covered. The shooting of Arnold Police Officer Ryan O’Connor is just one example of that. Jasmine Huda was the only reporter who had exclusive access to the O’Connor family during his amazing rehabilitation in Colorado.

Last, but certainly not least, FOX 2 and KPLR 11 are committed to covering local politics. We host debates among candidates and have the most extensive presidential election coverage.
