BMF Show last weekend


The BMF show was held at Tailend in Peterborough last weekend and was very successful by all accounts.  The weather was kind which attracted over 15,000 people to the show over the weekend and they were treated to lots of great motorcycle events.

 Here's how it went...


I said upside down
You're turning me... 

Attractions at the show included the Vertical Trix European Stunt Competition with competitors who had travelled from across Europe to compete for a great prize fund of £6000!

The stunt riders were incredible, with Aras Gibieza winning the Individual Freestyle and Longest Stoppie.  Romain Jeandroit took the Sickest Trick and Lee Bowers rode off with a win in the Stuntkana.
As well as the competitions, the stunt area was active and provided entertainment all weekend, creating soothing and appropriate screeching and revving background music to the show. 

Best In Show

Tailend saw the Best In Show competition for the first time this weekend as well, with prizes of £250 offered to the class winners and £350 to the overall winner.  The Best In Show marquee proved to be extremely popular and attracted over 8,000 votes from the public



These were the classes:
The only way is up - Steve Colley stuntrider

  • Custom

  • 3 Wheeler
  • Sports/Superbike
  • Streetfighter
  • Chopper / Engineering
  • Classic / Vintage
...and the winner was... Glen Shaw with his Yamaha MT-01 Streetfighter.

Moped Enduro

Off the beaten track.

The Moped Enduro was on a new track this year which had been specially designed to make the race more challenging. The Enduro was dominated by Team 100% proof on 
Saturday who won both Race 1 and Race 2 and clocked the fastest lap.  The two stroke step through class was won by Team Druid with Team Manea-Axe achieving the fastest lap.

Sidecar Race

And they're off
The ACU 1000cc Sidecar race took place on Saturday in the main arena. There was an exciting final, ending with Mark Cosser and Carl Blythe coming in first.

The BMF or British Motorcyclists Federation was formed in 1960 to represent motorcyclists and lobby to defeat ill conceived legislation and to Promote, Pursue and Protect the rights of motorcyclists.

Look out for the BMF shows next year - you can't fail to have a good time if you like motorcycles. Links and dates will be on the Wemoto News Calendar next year.
