Freestyle Now set to ‘roll out the rad’

Harvey-Waroona Reporter - - 2018 BRUNSWICK SHOW -

Crowds at the Brunswick Show will once again be thrilled and wowed by the al­most lim­it­less BMX tal­ent that is Freestyle Now.

Freestyle Now is an in­ter­na­tion­ally ac­claimed freestyle BMX rid­ing team founded in Perth in 1986 by friends Shaun Jarvis, Ge­org Mol­nar and Brad Dyer.

The team is no stranger to the show, with var­i­ous past and present mem­bers per­form­ing at the State’s big­gest agri­cul­tural show on and off for more than 20 years.

“Show-go­ers can ex­pect us to roll out the rad,” co-founder Mr Jarvis said. “We’re go­ing to bring it hard, send it large, bring it long and strong.”

The team will be per­form­ing six 10-minute shows on Satur­day, spread evenly through­out the day, re­sult­ing in 60 min­utes to­tal rid­ing time.

Rid­ers will be per­form­ing a range of dizzy­ing and daz­zling tricks in­clud­ing front flips, back­flips, bike flips, all man­ner of 360s, man­u­als, big air stunts and much more.

“To make a re­ally good show, first you need Freestyle Now to be rad, which is easy be­cause we know we are,” Mr Jarvis said.

“Sec­ond in­gre­di­ent is a venue that can ac­com­mo­date our set-up, which Brunswick has, so it’s not a prob­lem.

“Third in­gre­di­ent is a good crowd — a large crowd, a good num­ber of peo­ple and we know that the show draws that amount of peo­ple.

“Fourth and fi­nal in­gre­di­ent, also the most im­por­tant, is crowd par­tic­i­pa­tion.

“We can be per­form­ing in front of 1000 peo­ple, but if no-one is clap­ping, cheer­ing, scream­ing out, it’s like we’re per­form­ing in front of three peo­ple.”

The rid­ers from Freestyle Now are ready to en­ter­tain Brunswick Show-go­ers.
