Guess the miles of the tyre
Did you enter our competition over the weekend? Well it’s finally time to find out the answer!
For those of you who weren’t able to enter, we’ll give you some information:
Guess the miles of Ivan Lintin’s tyre, used at Oliver’s Mount Senior Lightweight race in 2015.
With over 200 entries, we have one lucky winner who correctly guessed the miles at 21.87.
Max Cook 30
We were lucky enough to have Max Cook, one of our fantastic sponsors, join us on the Devitt stand on Saturday. At only 13, Max is the youngest in the Moto3 BSB series riding for Replicast UK.
Max enjoyed the days entertainment, signing posters and chatting to other youngsters about how to get into motorcycling from a young age.
Steve Colley wowed everyone with his impressive 30 minute stunt show 4 times a day. We were lucky enough to get involved in one element of the stunt show helping Colley get started on his stunt obstacle without a front wheel!

Wall of Death
It’s not a proper biking festival unless there’s a Wall of Death and this one was like nothing we’ve seen before. Only the bravest of stunt motorcycle riders tackle of the Wall of Death and they sure did impress us.
