Stunt show, testing e-bike zone and Miss Motorcycle 2019

Part of the exhibition Motorcycle also includes a rich accompanying program to complement the varied range of motorcycle novelties. Stunt show featuring the best Czech stuntmen on the scooter, quads, trial bikes and motorcycles or in-line skates will certainly raise the adrenaline level in your veins. Furthermore, a novelty will be the e-bike zone, where visitors will be able to test nearly 50 electric bikes on the testing route with obstacles. Along the way, visitors will share experiences with well-known motorcyclists and travelers - Miro Laki Sloboda, who will talk about preparing for the most dangerous, but the most attractive races of the World Tourist Trophy on the Island of Man, Jan Zaťko and Martin Benka, participants of Rally Africa Eco Race, Marek Slobodník, who traveled across Africa on Pioneer and, of course, with the successful participants of the Rally Dakar, Štefan Svitko and Ivan Jakeš. In addition, Miss Motorcycle contest will be held at the exhibition for the very first time. A jury of experts and well-known personalities will decide which of the ladies will hold the title of the most beautiful and most charming hostess. The program will be complemented by the trial bike competition for children and youth. Who will last the longest on the bike without a seat? Young daredevils will be able to measure their strength in sports discipline, which is currently applying for enrollment in the family of Olympic sports. But in addition to adrenaline, safety must also be considered. That is why a live demonstration is prepared for visitors, during which professional instructors will advise you on how to behave on a motorcycle so that you do not endanger yourself or others.
