The International Dirt Bike Show at Stoneleigh Park kicked off in action and style today, with visitors flocking through the doors to see the latest 2011 model machines, products, clothing and accessories from all the leading manufacturers and suppliers.
On top of all the latest exhibits, the action arena was off to a lively start with audiences packing into the stalls to witness the air-time antics of the Bolddog freestyle team. Other visitors took the weight off their feet and sat back to enjoy the fashion shows, interviews and live performances on the main hall two entertainment stage.
