Media Advisory – Big Air Over the Flying Scotsman to Launch the Scottish Bike Show

You are invited to send a photographer / reporter / camera crew to a photocall at The SECC, Glasgow (on Friday 13 April 2012 at 11:00 for 11:15) to launch the Scottish Bike Show, Scotland's consumer cycle show, which runs from Friday 13 to Sunday 15 April 2012.


For a taste of the 2012 Scottish Bike Show BSD BMX stunt team riders, including UK legends Kriss Kyle and Chaz Mailey, will be performing gravity defying aerial manoeuvres high above Graeme Obree  – 'The Flying Scotsman', the world record breaking speed cyclist, as he opens the show.

The BSD BMX stunt display team, who will be sponsored by Rock Star Energy Drink during the show, will perform jaw dropping BMX displays and jam sessions including Kriss Kyle's speciality move, the flair, a 180 degree backflip, all weekend.

It is hoped that Graeme Obree will also pose for photos with the Ridley Noah FAST FB, 'the fastest bike in the world', that has a starting price of £7500, on the Walkers Cycling stand.

There will be loads of other opportunities for photos at the show – see information below.

Rowan Mackie from Magdala Media Ltd, organisers of the Scottish Bike Show, will be available for interview and photos, together with the BMX stunt riders and the show's exhibitors and national cycling organisations.
