The boys on the bikes are back as this summer’s Royal Cheshire County Show sets out to be bigger and better than ever.
The Cheshire Agricultural Society has revealed the return of the Bolddog Lings, who describe themselves as the UK’s number one motorcycle display team, as this year’s Delamere Dairy main ring attraction.
Back by popular demand after their visit to the show in 2015, the motorbike stunt team will once again be wowing the crowds with their thrilling, high-energy motorbike stunt show.
The ‘Bolddog boys’ team features the UK’s top ranked freestyle motocross riders incorporating the latest heartstopping tricks usually only seen on TV.
They say they will not be beaten on entertainment and strive to ensure the crowds are left mind-blown as they perform tricks ranging from the ‘superman seat grab’ to ‘kiss of death’ and many more.
Many of their moves will result in the rider exiting their seat, taking their hands off the handlebars and rotating their body around the bike with an informative on-board commentary for spectators.
The non-stop display will feature the most sophisticated landing ramp in the world with the public able to get a closer look at the bikes and meet the riders.
The society says plans are well under way for this year’s event, starting on Tuesday, June 19, which it believes is set to be a show to remember.
Popular attractions include more than 700 trade stands, the iconic Tabley Eye and one of the largest horse shows in the country.
The Cheshire Farmers’ Market, vintage machinery, the Women’s Institute, Cheshire East Rural Life and the Great British Cheese Company cheese and wine section are always well attended by visitors while the Agri-Centre gives people an insight into where their food comes from through interactive displays.
Inside the Roberts Bakery food halls foodies will be able to sample culinary treats from more than 100 local and regional producers while celebrity chefs will demonstrate mouth-watering recipes.
The main ring will be offering a packed schedule throughout the two days.
Executive director of the agricultural society Nigel Evans said: “We last saw the Bolddog Lings back in 2015 but since then I have been repeatedly asked each year when they will be back.
“Having listened to so many requests we are pleased the Bolddog boys have found time in their busy schedule to make the return.
“I’m sure they will again thrill and excite the crowds with their high octane and quite spectacular stunts.
“Without giving too many secrets away the boys are planning an extra special trick, just for us, in this our 180th anniversary year, so be sure to come along and check it out, you will not be disappointed.”
The Royal Cheshire County Show, held at Tabley, is described as ‘the premier summertime agricultural event in the north west of England’ gaining Royal status from the Cabinet Office in 2016. It attracts over 80,000 visitors a year.
