November 1 2014.

Day two of Europe’s largest dirt bike show drew star riders a-plenty to the main stage yesterday, with team announcements and rider interviews taking place throughout the day, interspersed with interactive games and activities to keep the Stoneleigh Park crowds entertained.

New products were in abundance too, with the GPX, an innovative new helmet from Leatt, offering new levels of impact protection, comfort and ventilation; a new air-cushioned design in body protection from RXR, all-new 2015 two and four-stroke bikes from TM and new cleaning and lubrication products from Putoline, to name but a few.

Competitions are always a popular aspect of the Show and this year is no different, headlining with the chance for one lucky Show enthusiast to win a Honda CRF450R Black Edition, and on the same stand, one visitor each day will win a Dave Thorpe Off Road Experience. Moto Magazine has two massive boxes of goodies to give away which, amongst other delights, includes riding kit signed by a number of top-level riders, and elsewhere in the halls are a variety of free-to-enter prize draws which call for nothing more taxing than an exchange of contact details. A Mecatecno T12 electric trials bike is up for grabs on the T&MX News/Dirt Bike Rider stand, a roomy Ogio travel bag is being offered by Husqvarna, Go Pro has an action-capturing camera on offer, Dunlop will present a set of motocross tyres and Madison has a pair of 2015 Thor pants and shirt set to contribute to the competition pot.

In recent years the annual dedicated off-road event at Stoneleigh Park has become synonymous with being an entertainment hub for the whole family, with plenty of free-of-charge visitor participation activities and live action to watch. If the comments of departing fans from today’s off-road fest are anything to go by, this year is already on track to be one of the best yet.

Doors open at 9.30am tomorrow, Saturday the 1st of November, when the on-stage, live and have-a-go activities will spring back into non-stop fun and action. Tickets are available at the gate with an adult one-day pass costing £15, children aged 11 to 15 £7.50 and children aged ten and under free. Parking is free.

The show’s website - www.dirtbikeshow.co.uk will be updated over the weekend, as will its Facebook and Twitter pages and free-to-download Show App.
