Nitro Circus a massive hit

A MIX of death defying stunts and the roar of motorbike engines proved to be the perfect ticket with BCU stadium packed to the rafters on Saturday for Nitro Circus.

More than 8000 locals flooded through the gates to get a glimpse of the action sports spectacular with the best in FMX, BMX, Skate and more taking on the 50 foot Nitro Gigant-A-Ramp.

Nikki Greenwood from the Coffs Harbour Councill Sports Unit agreed the event was a massive hit.

"It was great to see so many people at the Stadium on Saturday night,' Greenwood said.

"I saw lots of kids and families having a good time which was what you hope for from an event like this.

"There was a great atmosphere and the Nitro Circus crew put on an incredible show."
