Excitement on two wheels

Broke FMX motorcycle team in action

Broke FMX, a motorcycle stunt team, will perform two displays and after each one will be available to meet visitors for a chat and photographs.

Freestyle motocross is a growing trend and Broke FMX features some of the country’s top freestyle motocross riders, jumping 35 feet in the air and completing acrobatic stunts over gaps approaching 100 feet.

We will also have the Extreme Mountain Bike Show, Europe’s number one mountain bike demonstration team lead by the Multiple British and European Mountain Bike Trials Champion Danny Butler.

On the run!

Parkour in action

We are looking forward to welcoming a Parkour and Freerunning display - an amazing spectacle which sees three performers getting from A to B in the fastest way possible through a combination of strength, precision and co-ordination, flipping and leaping over any obstacle in their path.

They will perform three 15-minute displays and in between those the team’s coaches will be inviting children to take part in coaching sessions - allowing them to get a feel for this exciting activity.

The team has a new display rig which has been designed to ensure the shows are both exciting and jaw-dropping. The rig is 10 by 12 metres and four metres high, allowing the athletes to fully express themselves freely.

A Monster event

Rounding off the main arena entertainment will be the Monster Trucks, back by popular demand. They are always a hit with our visitors of all ages and their stunning display needs no introduction as they have visited the showground on a number of occasions.
