Motorcycle Live 2011 is heading off-road with an action-packed schedule of activities dedicated to dirt.

The Off-Road Zone sponsored by DBR and T+MX will once again offer a whole host of interactive features while the Ramp’d Up Freestyle Motocross Arena returns with the added bonus of being free of charge – and with Saturday 26 November designated as Dirt Day, off-road fans are spoilt for choice.

Dirt Day aims to bring the exciting world of off-road to the forefront with an all-star cast of riders in attendance, including the likes of RuiGonçalves and Jake Nicholls. Paul Malin and Jack Burnicle will host a special off-road themed Question of Bikes while James Whitham’s Q&A sessions will focus on all things MX.


On all nine days of the event, the T+MX and DBR Off-Road Zone will feature three live experiences offering visitors the chance to hit the dirt. The Yamaha Off-Road Experience is run by a team of instructors, led by former Motocross Grand Prix rider Barry Johnson, who will offer expert tuition on a specially constructed indoor circuit – all on the latest Yamaha machinery.

Kids aged six and over can also get in on action at the Suzuki Off-Road Experience. With tuition from fully trained instructors, youngsters have the chance to learn the basics of bike control and off-road riding techniques on mini Suzuki motorcycles. For visitors wanting to hone their bike control skills, the ACU Trials Zone is the ideal place. The ACU will be running twice-daily demonstrations of this highly skillful discipline, followed by open sessions for visitors to try their hand at trials riding under the guidance of the experts.

After all that activity, take a seat and watch professional riders do their thing at the Ramp’d Up Freestyle Motocross Arena. Designed to bring a huge shot of adrenalin to Motorcycle Live 2011, the stunning display of daredevil riding is sure to have spectators on the edge of their seats.

Finlay McAllan, Managing Director of event organisers MCI Exhibitions, says: “Dirt Day was so popular in 2010 that it was a natural decision to bring it back for 2011. The T+MX and DBR Off-Road Zone is a huge part of the show for the entire nine days but to have a specific day that puts MX, trials and enduro stars firmly in the spotlight is really important. Add to the mix all the latest models, the interactive experiences and a stunning and highly professional live FMX display included in the ticket price and you’ve got a must-visit event for anyone interested in off-road riding.”
