Extreme motorcycle action guaranteed at The Royal County of Berkshire Show

The Newbury & District & Agricultural Society are pleased to welcome back the amazing Bolddog Lings to the Royal County of Berkshire Show on the 15th and 16th September.

The Bolddog Lings Display Team was officially launched in 1995 as the Lings Motocross Display Team, and following that, the Bolddog Action Sports Company was launched in July 2002. Based on the latest extreme sports action including freestyle motocross and motorcycle back flips, the Bolddog Team travel the UK and Europe performing at county shows, carnivals and motorsports events.

The nationally acclaimed team has the largest, most high-tech landing ramp in the world and has been ridden by the world’s best freestyle professionals including World number one Nate Adams, and World record holder Robbie Madison, the current day Evil Knievel. The landing ramp has also been used on the world renowned Crusty Demons Tour and on the Top Gear Live Tour.

The ramp allows the riders to jump gaps of over 75 feet 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 will feature a wide range of tricks, many of them resulting in the rider exiting their seat, taking their hands off the handlebars and rotating their body around the bike!

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 on-board commentary while performing tricks giving you a true taste of what the rider is doing.

The 2018 freestyle team boasts the Best of British riding and includes top talent in the way of the UK’s first rider to backflip a four-stroke motocross bike and one of the UK’s top FMX riders, Dan Whitby, who will also be managing the team this year. The team also includes one of the UK’s highly rated FMX riders and super stylish Samson Eaton, along with young talent tipped for the top, Arran Powley.

The team looks to continue to set the standard in FMX showmanship this year and visitors 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 Tea, Manager and one of the UK’s top freestyle riders, Dan Whitby describes the show as “Its 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”

The Bolddog Lings Motorbike Stunt Team will be performing in the Main Arena on both days of the Show.

EARLY BIRD ticket prices for The Royal County of Berkshire Show are now available on the website.
