The Devitt Insurance MCN Festival of Motorcycling is just a couple of months away! The UK’s best loved outdoor bike show not only boasts Europe’s biggest multi manufacturer test fleet, hundreds of retailers, clubs, classic displays, an autojumble, DTRA racing, Moped Mayhem AND and a huge bike auction, it also features some jaw dropping stunt shows.

Who’s performing?

Bold dog FMX

The Bold dog FMX team are second to none. This world class crew of Freestyle MX riders are ready to unleash their incredible high-flying whips, tricks and crazy antics to impress visitors at the Festival. Dan Whitby and his team will be flipping their machines ramp-to-ramp a whopping sixty feet in the air promising a stunt show for all the family to remember.

Two Brothers Racing

Sponsored by Bull-it Jeans, Two Brothers are an adrenaline fuelled and all action street bike team that specialise in drifting. The riders Toddy and Vandal are a class apart. Vandal has been the UK street bike freestyle champion three times and holds a Guinness world record while Toddy was the 2016 UK Champion so expect the very best.

JD Stunts

Jonny Davies needs no introduction to stunt riding fans. Former British and Scottish Stunt Riding champion, Jonny also holds the world record for the fastest handlebar wheelie at 109mph. The BeMoto sponsored rider is cooking up some extra special tricks to wow the crowds.

Luke Fox Wall of death

One of the longest running motorcycle shows in the UK, the Wall of Death is a breathtaking display of speed, skill and courage. Luke Fox and his team are the very best wall riders in the world and they still use the original 1920’s Indian Scouts alongside modern machines. One of the highlights of the show is the Hell Race that has three bikes on the wall at the same time!

Lee Bowers

Sponsored by Royal Enfield, Lee is a huge name on the stunt riding scene with over 15 years experience and multiple world records to his name. Together with his girlfriend Hanna Rosa they’re at the cutting edge of stunt riding incorporating unique customised machines and jaw dropping skills. Lee’s flame throwing Royal Enfield Himalayan is a highlight of his show.

Massive bargains and premium brands

From end-of-line bargains to the very latest premium riding kit, the Devitt Insurance MCN Festival is the ideal place to stock up on new kit, with scores of retail stands there’s going to be plenty of choice. There’ll be discounted lids, leathers, textile gear and luggage with some very special deals you’ll not find anywhere else.

While it might be tempting to buy riding kit online the chance to try it on and see exactly what you’re getting before you hand over the cash is invaluable, especially when it comes to safety gear such as lids and leathers and when there’s also the chance to bag a few bargains it makes perfect sense to buy your kit at the Festival.
