What: For a taste of what’s to come at The Scottish Bike Show on 16 and 17 April, two BSD BMX stunt team riders, UK Champions Kriss Kyle from Stranraer and Chaz Mailey from Dumbarton, will be performing gravity-defying aerial manoeuvres set against the backdrop of Glasgow’s dramatic cityscape.

They will be using a custom ramp built especially for the show by Unit 23 skatepark.

The tricks will include tabletops, tailwhips and Kriss’s speciality move, the flair, a 180-degree backflip. Kriss (who is also sponsored by Nike 6.0) and Chaz are two of the top riders in the UK right now and travel worldwide representing their sponsors and Scotland.
