Nearly 12,000 people packed Perth’s Burswood Dome last night to witness the most extreme Crusty Demons show yet – Thirst 4 Destruction.
The West Australian crowd marvelled at the antics of global FMX stars Mike Metzger, Nate Adams, Taka Higashino, Mike Mason and Adam Jones, but were bought to their feet by the death defying feats of Australia’s own Jackson Strong and Kain Saul.
Australia’s first-ever female FMX rider Emma McFerran, who made her public debut, was a clear crowd favourite along with 6-year old Perth schoolboy Jasyn Roney, who demonstrated his phenomenal bike handling skills in race against Crusty Demons legend Bubba.
World FMX Trials Champion Jack Field entered the arena via the grandstand stairwell and nailed the worlds lowest ever backflip off a 30cm kicker.
The two-hour show, which was enhanced with over 2500 blasts of fireworks, flames and special effects saw 15 of the best FMX riders from around the globe showcase their skills through a range of cross-over jumps, trains and even a five-aside back-flip.
Whilst unable to jump due his injured wrist not quite healing in time, Robbie Maddison took on the role of co-MC joining Jerry Bernado in the Woodstock bar to call the show.
The Crusty Demons Thirst 4 Destruction Tour, presented by Woodstock Bourbon now heads to Adelaide’s Entertainment Centre for the second stop of the tour.
