Broke FMX’s 25-minute show happens three times daily, with riders John Pearson and fellow stunt rider Dan performing various two-wheeled tricks that defy the laws of physics on a Suzuki RM250 and a Honda CRF250, respectively.
Kevin Carmichael, who will also put on three shows a day on his Triumph ride, was the first person to wheelie a superbike with no front wheel or forks, and also has achieved this stunt with a passenger. He was also the rider who first started using a brake mounted on the handlebars, a maneuver that has been copied by every stunt rider in the world.
As for the Scottish Supermoto, this first round will be held over both show days. Saturday has qualifying and three races for the S3 (up to 250cc) class, plus qualifying and three races for the Open (any size) class. Sunday features qualifying and three races for the S1 (250-400cc) and S2 450cc upwards) classes, the first event in this year’s seven-round series.
Around 40 competitors are taking part and Scottish rider Dougie Cunningham, currently S1, S3 and overall Champion, is almost impossible to defeat on the half-mile course. On the other hand, S2 Champion Jeff Malcolm will be looking to defend his crown.
