Stunt Show at the Manchester Motorcycle Show

Stunt team Vertical Trix will be performing three times each day with its breathtaking and gravity defying show. The four-strong team perform on Kawasaki 636 bikes, spinning and standing on them as well as balancing a Legend racing car on two wheels.

Once the guys have performed, it’s the visitors turn as Vertical Trix has a twin wheelie machine designed to teach how to pull the perfect wheelie. For just ten pounds, enthusiasts can learn this trick in a complete safe environment. What’s even better is that they can then go head-to-head (or wheel-to-wheel) with their friends as the wheelie machines allows to stunt riders at once. Vertical Trix have also launched a new stunt academy for potential stunt riders and drivers.

Also performing three times each day in Broke FMX, the only team to perform breathtaking backflips of more than 70 feet. Lead rider John Pearson rides a Suzuki RM250 while stunt partner Dan rides a Honda CRF250. Audiences are guaranteed to be holding their breath when these guys take to the arena.
