Revving up for two-wheeled fun at showground

TODAY'S Stadium MX extravaganza at Coffs Harbour Showground gives club riders a unique opportunity to test their skills against the professionals.

Gates open at 10am and over the ensuing 12 hours the battle will be on for young and old.

Top enduro rider Tye Simmonds will be a major drawcard as he takes on Matt and Jake Moss, Sam Duncanson, Jesse Madden and rising stars Jaiden Corrigan, Lachlan Holroyd, Jordan Hill and Jordan Barham.

The best local hope Jordan Rose will also line up with the pros.

Event director Donna Craig said Coffs Harbour Motorcycle Club and the organising committee had worked hard to create a fun event in a safe and friendly environment.

"Spectators wearing an arm band will be able to enter and exit the venue through the entire event," Donna said.

"The club will be running a canteen packed full of hot and cold food and drinks, along with other local food vendors."

Patrons are advised to wear a hat, put on sunscreen and consume water at regular intervals.

Apart from a display by Flair Riders Freestyle show, merchandise stands will be an attraction.

Bike shops Coffs KTM, Crossroads Grafton and Coffs City Moto will cater for Husqvarna, Yamaha, Kawasaki and Suzuki fans.

Stadium MX shirts and hats will be available from the club stand as well as a raffle to win a CRF 50 from Coffs Honda, a Big Banana pass and a Coffs City Skydive.
