THE stars of the Nitro Circus have promised to pull some new tricks out of the bag when they kick off their Australian tour in Albury tonight.The sound of roaring engines engulfed Lavington Oval yesterday as riders fine-tuned their performance.
Nitro Circus leader and world No. 1 freestyle motorcross rider Travis Pastrana said the show would feature some of the world’s best FMX stunts launched off a death-defying 15-metre high ramp.
“We know this set really well so we’ve been trying in the last couple of weeks to figure out what we can do new and different that no one’s seen before and no one’s really done, so everyone’s really excited,” Pastrana said yesterday.
Up to 7000 people are expected to attend tonight’s show, the first of its kind in Albury, after the Nitro Circus crew arrived on Monday following five shows in New Zealand.
Heavy rain is forecast to hit the Border today but spokeswoman Jaime Mortimer was hoping it would clear by tonight’s show.
“At the moment the show is definitely going ahead as planned, rain in the morning doesn’t affect the show at night,” she said.
However, if rain does lead to tonight’s event being cancelled for safety reasons, Ms Mortimer said it may be postponed until tomorrow night.
Tickets for tonight’s show, which begins at 7.15pm, are still available through Ticketek.
