ARENACROSS TOUR PREPARES FOR CAPITAL SHOWDOWN
February 26 2016. 



The ultra-exciting 2016 Monster Energy Arenacross Tour, powered by Ford Ranger, consists of eleven extreme-sport shows that combine fast-paced, short-bursts of Motocross racing with high-octane Freestyle motocross. Pulsating music, atmospheric lighting, lasers, pyrotechnics and fireworks are thrown in for good measure, to make a full-on, all-action three and a half hours of non-stop family entertainment. 

The tour is now preparing for the climax of what has been an electrifying seven-venue series. It approaches its grand finale at the SSE Arena, Wembley tomorrow, Saturday the 27th of February, with three French riders capable of taking the Pro class win. Meanwhile, with two British racers – Buildbase Honda’s Adam Chatfield and SJR Kawasaki’s Jack Brunell from Windsor - in with a shout to secure the third step of the championship podium, there’ll be plenty of lively crowd participation when the action gets underway at 7pm. 

The mathematics confirm that a Frenchman will win the esteemed Pro class trophy, but the scene is set for something of a grudge match. Taking recent encounters into consideration, it is a fair assumption that there’ll be handle-bar and elbow-clashing a-plenty at Wembley. It really is an open book as to who will survive the Arenacross racing carnage. 

Away from the hard-core racing, the roar of the gathered spectators is expected to reach something of a crescendo when the highly-charged and energetic Freestyle motocross athletes hit the ramps. Edgar ‘Godfather’ Torronteras, Jamie ‘Squibby’ Squib, Dan ‘Muscles’ Whitby, Samson ‘Joker’ Eaton and Arran ‘Babyface’ Powley are Tour regulars and have yet to disappoint AX audiences with their wild tricks, massive whips and roller-coaster back flips. Their motorcycle aerobatics often appear to be something of a riotous assembly, which further underlines their skill as, when they are in the train, just milliseconds apart, absolutely nothing can be left to chance. Powley pulled an astonishing Cliffhanger-to-no-hander-lander out of the bag at Sheffield, to the amazement of the audience. There is little doubt that these boys are show-boaters and they are set to throw caution to the wind at Wembley – literally anything could happen. 

At the other end of the engine capacity scale, the youngest competitors of the tour, namely the 65cc Youth group are preparing for a battle royale, as just one point separates the leading two KTM pilots. The determined little guys are not prepared to give up anytime soon and both nine-year-olds; Kiean Boughen, from Lancashire, and Ollie Colmer, from Tyne & Wear, are as equally determined as their professional counterparts to claim the 2016 Arenacross crown. Tears are expected before bedtime! 

The final leg of the 2016 Monster Energy Arenacross Tour gets underway when doors open at 6pm on Saturday the 27th of February at the SSE Arena, Wembley.
