Though a modern show, Classic Dirt Bike always does well there because the youngsters off looking at the modern stuff seem to deposit their older relatives near us – we’re generally near the tea and toilets you see! The popular Evojumble will be back and there’ll be a chance to find those bits you’re desperate for to get back out on the track.
British lubricants manufacturer Rock Oil returns to the show this year. Both Rock and long-term show supporter Putoline pride themselves on their grass roots support of riders in the UK and they rightly see the International Dirt Bike Show as the place to meet and greet off-road enthusiasts of all ages and disciplines.
Over on the accessories front, top names such as ONE Industries join Fox Head Europe, RaceFX, CI Sport, Apico International and Madison who are back, joining a healthy showing of tyre distributors, with Slovenian manufacturer Sava making its second visit, keeping good company with Michelin, Dunlop and Golden Tyre.
For those who enjoyed the wealth of free-of-charge activities last year, the plan is to again run hall four as an activity centre, with all activities free of charge. Headlining here for the first time at the International Dirt Bike Show will be My First Honda Licence, which is always a hugely popular feature at shows.
