Trial Riding Motorbikes
Watch all of the action of motorbike trial riding! Unlike most other forms of motorcycle sport, Trial is not racing. It is simply you and your bike pitted against the terrain. Trial is a sport of balance, skill and concentration. One at a time, competitors will ride over an obstacle course of boulders, streams, hill climbs, logs, drop offs, and nearly anything else they can find.
Shows are at 10:30am, 12:45pm, 2:45pm
Commencing from 1pm on the Arena.
Tassie Flying Paws
High paced entertainment from 2 teams of dogs competing in a relay race. Flyball is a dog sport in which teams of dogs race against each other from the start to the finish line, over a line of hurdles, to a box that releases a tennis ball to be caught when the dog presses the spring-loaded pad, then back to their handlers while carrying the ball.
