It’s Showtime! The International Dirt Bike Show… all you need to know
The Dirt Bike Show in partnership with MOTUL is finally here and the line-up this year is the biggest ever! Yep over the next four days… Thursday to Sunday (October 26th to the 29th) Stoneleigh Park (CV8 2LZ) will be buzzing to the sound a whole host of Off Road events and entertainments.
Here’s a quick guide to whats on and what you can expect from this years Dirt Bike Show!
Bikes new and old
After all the waiting, you can finally see what bikes the manufacturers have brought with them. Head over to Hall 2 to see a staggering number of machines from all of the major manufacturers covering every off-road discipline. You can also feast your eyes on a real MXGP paddock from Bike It and Monster Energy DRT Kawasaki. Throw in a selection of historic machines in the classic display and there really is something for everyone!
Grab a bargain
If you’ve got a machine sorted for next year, you’re going to need all the gear to go with it, and that’s where two retail and trade halls come in. The leading distributors of top-of-the-range clothing will all be on site offering great deals on the latest kit, alongside those stocking accessories, riding gear, cleaning products and more. Treat your bike as well with the leading tyre brands for sale direct from all the main suppliers and well-known retailers. If that’s not enough, in the Motojumble you’ll find parts or even a project bike for the winter! Check the map and exhibitor listings for all the details.
Live action, entertainment and activities
Twelve-time world champion trials legend Dougie Lampkin will have a display team putting on trials demonstrations across all four days. That’s not all – for the first time ever there will be live action in Motoball as France and Germany go wheel to wheel; something not to be missed if you’ve never experienced it before! Old favourite Minibike Supercross racing will also be joined by Minibike Flat Track this year, plus the gravity-defying Wall of Death. There are have-a-go electric trials areas for both adults and kids and the younger members of the family can also enjoy getting to grips with quads and Strider balance bikes.
A jam-packed onstage timetable
Head over to the hub of activity which is the main stage and enjoy a well-earned sit-down while you listen to British Superbike ace Steve Plater as he interviews star riders, industry figureheads and racing legends. There will also be the usual raft of great on-stage activities and competitions.
