2012 Manchester Motorcycle Show line up announced

The 2012 Manchester Motorcycle Show has lined up some live action for visitors when it returns to Manchester Central Convention Complex on Saturday 14th and Sunday 15th January.

Stunt team Vertical Trix will be performing three times each day with its 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. 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 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.

With all the major manufacturers and a line up of well known riders as well as an extensive retail village with every part and spare imaginable, clothing, helmets and everything else needed to keep biking enthusiasts where they belong...on the road!

Adult ticket prices are £10 when booking in advance, £15 on the day. Children under 15 years enter for free when accompanied by a paying adult. The show is open from 10am each day and closes at 5pm.
