The popular Russian will join other top level off-road motorcycle racers heading for Birmingham, including Shaun Simpson, Zach Osborne, Martin Barr, Jake Nicholls, Nathan Parker and Paul Malin. But fans can do so much more than just look at new bikes and world-class riders.

Yamaha comes to Carole Nash Motorcycle Live with an indoor motocross school and an outdoor enduro experience and there’s even an opportunity for visitors to test their skill and balance in a free trials lesson in the ACU Trials Zone.
With more new off-road models on display under one roof than anywhere else in the UK, Carole Nash Motorcycle Live will also offer fans the opportunity to see the latest products up-close and personal from 27 November to 5 December, but with special attention paid to Dirt Day, when stars from the world of dirt drop in to meet fans and chat on the Black Horse stage in the Arai Entertainment Zone.
Finlay McAllan (Managing Director of Event organizers, MCI Exhibitions) says: "Naturally we’re thrilled that all these top riders have chosen our Event to interact with their fans. We’re also delighted to have more new off-road product than at any other UK event. Off- road sport is incredibly important to the future of motorcycling, allowing kids to get onto two wheels at a very early stage."

With several off-road experience features, you really can try motocross, trials and enduro all in one-day while taking in a freestyle MX show and getting the kids onto two-wheels for the first time."
