THE entrance of the Port Antonio Marina in Portland was transformed into a hotbed of motorcycle machismo as several top stunt bike crews battled for the crowd's affection last Sunday.

However, it was Damion 'Dunga' Hughes from Rush Riders Crew who took top honours at the East & West Bikini Bike Fest Stunt Battle.

"Dunga from Rush Riders took the East/West trophy while Elvis 'Mad Dog' Stewart was the first runner-up," event promoter Curtis Whyte told Auto.

And, although the rains had washed out the trophy presentation ceremony and bikini contest, Whyte was happy with the event.

"It went immensely well," he said.

"I'm already fielding calls for a follow-up which I hope to hold in November. Of course, our success is due to our sponsors, the bikers, and all the fans that came out to watch. Special thanks to the fire and police departments for their assistance," he continued.

Earlier in the day, individuals from several bike crews adjusted, tested, attempted, even switched machinery in an attempt to hit that key stunt.

Marlon 'Crazy Cutter' Fletcher from Crazy Bikers was first to garner the crowd's attention. He executed an assortment of front and rear wheelies that others struggled to attempt. His killer move was a high-speed dismount from his attention-grabbing bike that left him walking away into the crowd while it was upright on its kickstand.

The bike fans would also be captivated by Kevin 'Ghost Rider' McKoy. He displayed some fancy footwork by standing and dancing on the seat of the bike while it was in motion.

Other standouts included Javado Willis, who, with the assistance of a female patron, performed a very sexually charged stunt which sent the crowd into a frenzy.
