FMX hero Torrenteras heads Arenacross freestylers

The eagerly-awaited Arenacross Tour bursts into life this weekend when the opening round of the Tour gets underway on Saturday the 6th of January.

The racers are busy fettling their machines in anticipation of the gate dropping for the first race, whilst the impressive line-up of world-class AX FMXers are getting ready to show off their high-air whips, tricks and crazy antics.

Spaniard Edgar Torronteras, widely acknowledged as the pioneer of FMX, is back for 2018! A firm fave with fans up and down the country, in Europe and beyond, ET’s popularity has grown to almost god-like status. His all-round ability to throw down super-polished tricks on his bike and then run the show with his unique take on beat-boxing, is legendary.

Joining ET in the arena will be Petr Pilat, the long-limbed uber-smooth Czech giant and master of the tandem back-flip; multi-award-winning back-flipper from Germany Luc Ackerman, Aussie-ace Ryan Brown, Gilles Dejong, Christian Kleiner and the all-Brit and fearless AX Freestyle MX Crew of Nez Parker, Dan Whitby, Sansom Eaton and Arran Powley.

The guys will again be headlining, and delighting AX audiences. They’ll twist, whip and flip their bodies and machines through three incredible sets, some 60’ above the arena floor, with one purpose in mind, and that’s to entertain what is expected to be a capacity and raucous Manchester crowd.

Arena doors open at 6.00pm and show-goers can spend time on the concourse checking out the all-new-for-2018 AX merchandise and grabbing a star for an autograph and picture. The Show itself gets into full volume from 7.00pm.
