Carole Nash Motorcycle Live goes Off-Road

UK Motorcycle Show

Carole Nash Motorcycle Live is not just for street bikes as the off-road schedule is packed full of activities for those looking to hit the dirt instead of the tarmac.

The T+MX and DBR Off-Road Zone offers a host of interactive features and with a dedicated Dirt Day on Saturday Dec. 4, Carole Nash Motorcycle Live has more off-road motocross than ever before.

As well, Dirt Day presents the exciting world of off-road with an all-star cast of motorcycle racers in attendance.

World MX1 Kawasaki racer Sebastien Pourcel and Yamaha’s MX2 star Gautier Paulin will both appear alongside British Motocross Championship KTM riders Zach Osboune, Martin Barr, Jake Nicholls and Nathan Parker.

Motorcycle stars from the world of Trials and Enduro will also join the day, taking part in a special off-road themed Question of Bikes with Steve Parrish and Jamie Whitham’s MX Q&A.

While Dirt Day focuses attention on the final Saturday, motorcyclists can head to the T+MX and DBR Off-Road Zone anytime during the nine-day event to get involved, and the good news is it’s all absolutely free.

Children from the age of six can have a go on the inflatable lined track at the Suzuki Off-Road Experience.

Aspiring motocross riders can tackle a series of challenging corners and bumpy straights, all overseen by qualified Moto-X coaches.

With the kids taken care of, adults can head out on a specially designed indoor motocross circuit at the Yamaha Off-Road Experience, all under the guidance of former Motocross Grand Prix rider Barry Johnson.

Swap dirt for muddy trails at the Yamaha Enduro Experience, which takes riders out into the woodland surrounding the NEC. With 10-times British Enduro Champion Geraint Jones at the helm, this is sure to be an experience you will never forget.

If Trials riding is your thing, or if you think it could be your thing, the ACU will be running twice-daily demonstrations showcasing the extreme clutch and braking control required.

Motorcyclists over 16 will then get the chance to sign up for a trials motorcycle lesson to see if they have what it takes to master this skillful discipline.

After all that exertion, you may be in need of a rest but that doesn’t mean the adrenaline seeking has to stop. Head down to the Freestyle Motocross Arena to see the professionals in action.

Britain’s top freestyle motocross riders Chris Birth, Kris Brock and Jamie Squibb will put on a jaw-dropping display of aerial antics that will have you on the edge of your seat.

For Yamaha Off-Road and Enduro motorcycle experiences, participants must have some experience of having ridden a clutch-operated motorbike.
