On January 27 & 28th 2017 the ArenaCross UK Tour graced Belfast’s Odyssey Arena for two rounds of the UK Competition.  With everyone from 7 year old kids to Europe’s finest indoor Motorcross Racers and a ridiculously skilled Freestyle Team this really is a high octane, completely flat out show from start to finish – and it’s a format that works and this is its fifth year on the bounce in Belfast – and my second.

Check out the official website here for all the results, upcoming events, news and photos…

So what does it entail?  Racing…Freestyling…Some more Racing…A bit of Beat Boxing…Some more Freestyling and even more Racing.

Now that’s a good schedule for a night’s entertainment and it doesn’t really seem to stop.  When the racing heats stop the freestylers come on, the track gets fixed the racing starts again and this sequence repeats.  It is a recipe that a few other events could learn from.  Keep the action going, keep the crowd keen!  It works.

Not only does the schedule work well but these guys – from the kids to the pros are going flat out…full tilt.

I have put together a bit of a ‘Highligh Reel’ which you can view on my YouTube Channel, or right here…

(Please note this video only shows highlights from the FMX aspect of the show – with so much going on on the track it would be unfair of me to try and capture any racing footage and upload as an accurate representation of the race – you really have to go and see the reacing and appreciate what these guys are foing on motorcycles that is in reality a track not much bigger than an ice hockey rink! – The video is not Monetized.)

I have put together a gallery of some of the action from both the Racing and the FMX sections of the show, have a browse and enjoy…
