The Arenacross Promo Tour will be visiting Bolesworth on Saturday 16th and Sunday 17th June to stun us with some incredible Freestyle Motocross! Located next to the lake on the right as you come in through the main entrance, there will be 4 displays per day over the weekend which will be sure to get that adrenalin pumping..!!!
FMX, or Freestyle Motocross, takes the high-flying action of Motocross and lets it lose 40 feet above the track. Riders hit purpose-built ramps on specially modified dirt-bikes and then, as if flying across a 50 ft gap on an 100 kg bike wasn’t enough, they will attempt to out-do each other by performing tricks, flips and whips, all for your entertainment!
Check out their website www.arenacrossuk.com
Jamie Squibb has been billed as the best FMX rider in the UK – a pretty impressive title to hold!
Hailing from Devon, Jamie has been riding Freestyle for 14 years now and all the broken bones, dislocations and other injuries that his body has endured tells that story! You'll most likely see Squibby throwing down flip after flip and as if they didn't look difficult enough, he also has a fondness for incorporating crazy trick combos into those flips…keep an eye out for them as they have to be seen to be believed!

Aussie Steve Sommerfeld has got to be one of the nicest guys in Freestyle.
He's also possible the most Australian person you've ever met! And he takes that with him when he hits the ramps, pulling out some insane tricks that have got to be seen to be believed, all with what looks like the most minimal fuss possible. Steve's also been riding FMX for 14 years and, like Squibby, has the hospital reports to prove it. Out for a good time, watch out as Steve liked to ditch his bike, jump the crowd barriers and join the audiences in watching the show!
