Motorcross act, the Bolddog Lings Freestyle Team, will be amazing audiences with their gravity-defiant spectacular which boasts the world’s largest high-tech landing ramp.
Allowing riders to jump gaps of over 75ft (23m) and reach heights of over 35ft (10.5m) in the air, it has been ridden by stars including the current day Evil Knievel - Robbie Madison - and was also used on the Top Gear live tour.
Riders will be able to gain enough air-time to perform an array of death-defying tricks which will see the riders exiting their seat, taking their hands off the handlebars and rotating their body around the bike.
The riders will also go head to head in a test of nerves to see who will perform the biggest tricks to win over the crowd while providing on-board commentary during the tricks.
Bolddog Lings team manager and freestyle rider, Dan Whitby, said: “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.”
Not only has the team appeared in some of the largest shows in the world but it has also graced the big screen featuring in Hollywood blockbusters such as Captain America.
The team includes FMX rider Samson Eaton and young talent Arran Powley.
Fans are also encouraged to meet the stars of the show at the Bolddog Lings interactive stand at the Royal Norfolk Show where they can find out more about freestyle motocross.
