New look for 10th anniversary Dirt Bike Show


A whole new look focused on some of the top teams in the world and British motocross championships will form an exciting new centrepiece to celebrate the 10th running of Europe’s biggest off-road bike show.

The 2009 Dirt Bike Show at Stoneleigh Park on November 5-8 will showcase a mini race paddock where the biggest names in off-road will throw open their vast race vehicles and where fans will get up close and personal with the exotic team bikes from all the major manufacturers.

All the fun and games from last years show.

And for the first time in the UK, every major 2010 production dirt bike – motocross, enduro and trials – from Honda, Yamaha, Suzuki, Kawasaki, KTM, Husaberg, Sherco, Gas-Gas, CCM and many more – will be all together under one roof along with all the latest clothing, accessories and parts that any off-roader could want.

“It’s hard to believe we’re now in our 10th year so we wanted to make this year’s show a real celebration,” said show co-ordinator Joanne.

“We’ll be announcing lots of special deals and competitions as we get nearer to the show which I think will be better than ever before!”

As well as all the new bikes and kit under one roof, the Dirt Bike Show pioneered providing great fun and entertainment with stunt shows, presentations, discussion forums and prizegivings, and 2009 promises to be even better.

“We’ll have some great things to see and do. Some brilliant shows that are great fun for all the family – not just the die-hard racer,” she says.

Already virtually a sell-out to trade exhibitors, the Dirt Bike Show will again be in four huge halls where club riders and fans will get to meet their dirt bike heroes.

“The show is a real destination event for every off-roader,” says Joanne.
