Stunt rid­ers set to im­press

AgLife - - News -

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.
