DARING STUNTS AT NASREC: Stunt-riding team the Le Riche Brothers will keep visitors to August's AMiD motorcycle show entertained.

Visitors to the AMiD motorcycle show in August can look forward to some top stunt-riding displays by the Le Riche Brothers.

Bruce and Brent Le Riche have been performing motorcycle stunt shows since 2008 and are preparing to bring their world-class stunt riding display to Johannesburg.

The duo will be using a specially-built truck and trailer, along with what is said to be the world’s first and only trials rollover motorcycle rig, for their AMiD display. They have also revised the rear ramp on their truck to incorporate a 3.5m undercut step.


Bruce rides a 300cc Gas Gas Racing bike, while Brent uses a 300cc Factory Beta machine – both motorcycles have been developed for the sport of trials riding where the emphasis is on low-end power and manoeuvrability.

Bruce, a former SA champ, and Brent have competed in North American motorcycle trials championships for a number of years, while their stunt show have also seen them performing in Spain and England.

Catch the Le Riche Brothers in action at the AMiD motorcycle show at the Johannesburg Expo Centre from August 24 – 26, 2012, where they will perform two shows on Friday and three shows on both Saturday and Sunday. R60 gets you through the gates and allows access to the AMiD show along with the Johannesburg Boat and the Outdoor Lifestyle shows.
