MOTORCYCLE riders from Jamaica's most fearless stunt bike crews will take centre stage at the Pizza Hut Full Tilt motorcycle stunt show at the National Stadium in St Andrew on Sunday.

Set to start at 10 am, the event will see 'stunters' in sizzling action.

According to event organiser and former motorcyle racer Dwayne Virgo, patrons are in for a wild ride.

"In addition to exhibitions by some of Jamaica's top stunters, there's gonna be a wide range of entertainment the whole family can enjoy. We'll also have a kids village with rides and free ice cream, Pizza Hut and KFC will be on sale at the venue, free Wi-Fi by Dekal Wireless, plus giveaways every hour," said Virgo.

Bikers expected to challenge the laws of gravity include Damion 'Dunga' Hughes, Shayan 'Shagga' Ferguson and Romond Gichie of the Montego Bay-based Rush Riders stunt crew, Elvis 'Mad Dog' Stewart of the Westmoreland-based Wes Bes Crew and Marlon 'Crazy Cutter' Fletcher of the Kingston-based Crazy Bikers.

Fletcher, known for an impressive repertoire of death-defying stunts, told Auto that he will not be holding back.

"The stadium is always a nice place to ride and Kingston is where I'm from, so this is really my home turf and I know a lot of fans will be out to support me. I'm going all out and I won't be leaving anything to chance so I'm looking forward to a wonderful riding experience," said Fletcher.

The event will also feature performances by I-Octane, Voicemail, Ding-Dong, and Ninja Kid.

According to Virgo, modified cars from the Skunk Nation crew will also be on display in the parking lot along with remote-controlled cars.

The event will be hosted by Antoinette Chase-Brown, DJ Burger and Halquin 'Pugu' Rodney.

Admission is $800 for adults and $200 for children.
