Riders ready to wow big crowd with their skills and spills

FULL grids in most junior classes will have fans flocking to Coffs Harbour Showground today for the annual StadiumMX motocross extravaganza.

Top class Australian title riders Jed Lawrence and Hunter Lawrence are among the nominations.

Pro open riders Lawson Bopping, Daniel McCoy, Damien Harrison and Sam Duncanson are set to battle it out with Nathan Crawford, Trent Wheatley, Dylan Hickling, Jaiden Corrigan and Dylan Wilson in the pro lites.

Local riders Jack Foley and Jordan Rose are also going to take some beating.

Club volunteer Donna Craig said fine weather through the week had been a great assistance with preparations.

"The track was all built ahead of schedule with the lighting towers going in on Thursday night and all the testing done," Donna said.

"The entertainment this year will be full on.

"The pro shoot-out has $1000 up for grabs and is always thrilling to watch as the top 12 riders battle it out, two at a time.

"Two riders go head-to-head for one lap.

"The winner stays to take on the next rider with no break."

Long time local rider Glenn Poole will be attending for the over-35s class and will be hot favourite.

Gates open at 9am for practise and racing starts at 11am.

It's recommended that patrons wear a hat and sunscreen.

The event is alcohol-free.
