The nationally acclaimed team has the largest most advanced landing ramp in the world and has been ridden by the world’s best freestyle professionals including world number one Nate Adams, as well as world record holder and current-day Evil Knievel, Robbie Madison.
The landing ramp has also been used on the world renowned Top Gear Live Tour and was recently used on the team’s appearance on Britain’s Got Talent. The ramp allows the riders to jump gaps of over 75ft and reach heights of over 35ft in the air, which gives the riders enough “air-time” to perform an array of death defying tricks usually only seen on TV.
The show features tricks such as the ‘look back hart attack’, ‘holy grab’, ‘cliff hanger’, ‘kiss of death’, ‘dead body’ and many more. Many of these moves will result in the rider exiting their seat, taking their hands off the handlebars and rotating their body around the bike! Gymnastics on a motorcycle 35ft in the air!
The riders also go head to head in a true test of nerve to see who will throw down the biggest tricks to win over the crowd. If that’s not enough the riders provide onboard commentary while performing tricks giving you a true taste of what the rider is doing.
The 2016 freestyle team boasts the Best of British riding, and includes top talent in the way of the UK’s first riders to backflip a four stroke motocross bike and one of the UK’s top FMX rider’s, Dan Whitby, who is also the team manager.
The team also includes one of the UK’s highly rated FMX rider’s and super stylish, Samson Eaton, along with young talent tipped for the top, Arran Powley. With two riders performing at each event the team looks to continue to set the standard in FMX showmanship this year. Public are invited to meet the stars of the show at the Bolddog Lings interactive stand where they can also find out more about Freestyle Motocross.
Not only have the team appeared in some of the largest shows in the world, but have also graced the big screen featuring in Hollywood blockbusters such as Captain America. Bolddog Lings Team Manager and one of the UK’s top freestyle riders, Dan Whitby, describes the show as, “It’s more than just freestyle. It’s a non-stop show that will entertain everyone from off–road enthusiasts to the general public. It’s a must see part of any festival and is continually growing in popularity as the awareness of FMX increases.”
