Stunt riders set to impress
Wimmera and Mallee residents keenly awaiting a Nitro Circus Live show in Horsham on Easter Sunday can enjoy an early taste of motocross action at the field days.
Factory FMX will again bring its popular and successful stunt riders to the Longerenong event in 2017.
Field days manager Murray Wilson said patrons would be treated to a bonus this year, with two professional riders showcasing tandem jumps.
They will also feature the latest midair tricks, leaping distances of more than 20 metres long and almost 10 metres high.
“The motocross stunt riders will be a huge drawcard for our event,” Mr Wilson said. “With the region’s strong connection to motocross and a firstclass track nearby, it is a great fit for the field days.”
Mr Wilson said he was pleased to see O’Connors Farm Machinery on board as a sponsor of the show.
“They will offer Factory FMX stunt riders the chance to leap over some huge tractors and other O’Connors machines, which will be lined up under the jumps area,” he said.
The Factory FMX team will perform daily at 10.30am, 12.30pm and 2.30pm.
