So, who made it down to Ace Café’s Stunt Festival & Street Fighter show over the weekend?
We did – and what a show! The day was a huge success, with people turning up in their hundreds to witness some pretty awesome stunts, performed in the glorious sunshine by bikers from across the globe.
Tonnes of bikers gathered with their machines in the Metzeler Arena to compete for some fantastic prizes and a chunk of the £5,000 cash fund. There were plenty of slick tricks, burnouts, extreme wheelies and freestyle madness – we were left with our mouths wide open and wondering how on earth they managed to pull some of the stunts!
This year’s show hosted the very first Stunt Bike Open Freestyle Championship Finals which went down a treat and took place throughout the day. There was also a fantastic ‘Best Streetfighter’ display that was run on a ‘Show up ‘n’ Shine’ basis.
Along with all the mayhem taking place in the Arena, there was plenty of live entertainment throughout the day over at the Ace Stage from the likes of Rapper HBoss and Street Dance Troupe Chaos from the Michelle Bourne Academy who have performed live on the BBC. Stunt ensemble The London Rockin’ Rollers entertained crowds all day long while raising money for their chosen charity, London’s Air Ambulance. There were also plenty of industry and trade displays and stands where visitors could take a peek at some bikes and bag themselves a few bargains.
Once again Ace Café has impressed us by putting on a spectacular show that was enjoyed by all. You can check out some of our pictures from the event over at our Facebook page.
