Crusty demons unleash their hell

flamemain1SARDINES and milk made for a volatile cocktail consumed by a few brave spectators at the Crusty Demons show at Westpac Stadium.

It was a dare that drew applause from an estimated 8000 freestyle motocross fans who turned up to see dirt bike riders perform acrobatic stunts at a height of around 14 metres.

An MC persuaded unsuspecting fans to drink a concoction of milk, eggs, sardines, smoked oysters, rockstar energy drink – and a pair of underpants.

The drawcard of the live two-hour show – which features stunts and pyrotechnics involving both professionals and the audience – was Australian Cam Sinclair’s death-defying double back flip, performed in Wellington for the first time.

Manawatu rider Levi Sherwood, 17, and Tokoroa’s Nick Franklin, 27, were joined by Crusty Demons team members from Australia and the United States.

Franklin replaced Auckland-based Luke Smith, 27, on the tour after the rider was injured during a practice session just two weeks prior.

Crusty Babes dancers were escorted to the top of the bike ramps in between sessions, providing entertainment for the male-dominant crowd. MCs upped the ante with various giveaways.

One young fan won a mini dirt bike after beating his three rivals in an air-guitar competition.

The Unleash Hell NZ Tour involves nine shows, which started in Napier on January 24, the last show in Nelson on February 28.
