UK Motorcycle Show

The eighth day of Carole Nash Motorcycle Live was dedicated to all things off-road.

MX riders from across the world flocked to the Event to celebrate Dirt Day and they were joined by a whole host of road racing stars for yet another thrilling day at The NEC, Birmingham.

Reigning British MX1 Champion and Honda rider Evgeny Bobryshev made an appearance along with British MX2 Champion and Yamaha rider Zach Osborne.

Also at the Event were Kawasaki’s World MX1 contender Sebastien Pourcel and MX2 racer Max Anstie, as well as KTM’s World MX2 rider Jake Nicholls.

Former World Superbike Champions James Toseland and Troy Corser and BMW SBK rider Leon Haslam spent the day at the Event, as did father and son racing duo Randy and Dakota Mamola.

Honda took the opportunity to launch its all-new World MX1 rider line-up with riders Evgeny Bobryshev and Rui Goncalves.

"It’s great to be here to meet the fans who’ve been supporting me all season in the British races," said Bobryshev. "I’m really looking forward to 2011 and competing on the world stage with Honda."

Aside from seeing their racing heroes in the flesh, off-road fans also had the chance to try the discipline themselves at the Yamaha Off-Road Experience in the T+MX and DBR Off-Road Zone.

It was then time to feast their eyes on the new off-road machines the manufacturers have to offer. From KTM to Kawasaki, Husqvarna to Triumph, all the big names in off-road machinery are here.

Managing Director of Event organisers MCI Exhibitions Finlay McAllan says: "Today has been a full celebration of the world of off-road. We were very happy to welcome Honda for the launch of their new World MX team and to have the MX riders present."

"The world of two-wheels is so incredibly varied and I’m just glad we have been able to acknowledge and celebrate the off-road sector."
