Freestyle motocross spectacular Masters of Dirt is coming to London for the first time.
The event at Wembley Arena on March 14 promises to be packed with “full-on action and entertainment”, featuring Europe’s best freestyle motocross (FMX), mountain bike, BMX, minibikes, quad and snowmobile riders.
Riders including British FMX champion Chris Birch will perform their death-defying whips, backflips and other jaw-dropping tricks live during the two-and-a-half-hour show.
Birch, 27, said: “I can’t wait to ride MoD in my home country and you can guarantee I will bring some serious new tricks to the ramps.”
Masters of Dirt founder Georgie Fechter said: “We can’t wait to come to London with our rock-out aerial production.
“MoD is consistently sold-out creating an intense and buzzy atmosphere.
“The bike shows are incredible and when combined with the astounding sound and lighting system alongside the flame cannons and the fire breathing-antics of the sexy Fuel Girls, this show goes off.”
Tickets are on sale from the Wembley box office and Ticketmaster.
