    Re: nitro circus....

    Was an absolutely insane show! Those guys and girls have got some real talent, and some real big balls. It was good to see some homegrown talent in the form of Levi Sherwood taking it to Travis on the FMX ramp again. He even won a couple of the competitions they had Highlights of the night were definitely the double front and back flips on the FMX and BMX, the quad tailspin, and the guy riding the chilly bin down the giganta-ramp

    Also props to Aaron "Wheels" Fotheringham, for having the balls to do all of that in a wheelchair, and never letting his disability overcome him. I think he summed it up best when he said "I'm not IN my wheelchair, I'm ON it". Just goes to show what people are capable of when they have a little spirit and a whole lotta balls

    Re: nitro circus....

    I got on the motorway at 5:30pm at Gillies... Gridlock. Took 45 mins to get to the stadium. Parking was a joke, we just parked on a random grass paddock like hundreds of others. There was one security guard trying to stop people but even he admitted as we walked past he was stuffed.

    Awesome show, was trail riding today and most people there were buzzing about the show lastnight.

    Re: nitro circus....

    I wouldn't be suprised if that chick was a plant, would they really get a random doing a back flip on a motorbike? Will be interesting to hear from people at the other shows.

    She was rather hot though..

    Yeah how the fuck can thy be allowed to build a massive stadium with such appalling parking and access in/out with all the resource consent bullshit these days?!?!?! I've only been to The Who and Nitro there, never a sporting event, but can't imagine it'd be much different, although maybe the sporting events never sell out?

    Loved the show, double front flip was amazing!!

    My theory is they chose a ticket at random (possibly semi-random, wouldn't work too well with a larger person) and they've had her training with them on their practice days.

    x3 on the traffic and parking being absolute shit.

    Roger Waters years ago had the exact same parking dramas - i was gutted to have to go thru the same ordeal again - 40mins to get out of the lower parking area, and some of the angriest fellow parkers I've ever seen!!

    The show - amazing!!
    Greg, there is one down Hamilton next weekend - if there are still tickets - GO!!

    Yes she's a plant, chances of finding a chick that fits their perfect sized Fox gear... sure.

    Hamilton was their biggest crowd yet, 25,000 fans.

    Any southerners that don't have tickets yet really should get there, even the cheap seats get a good view.

    i went to the hamilton show, was mean show annnnnnddd got to meet travis n couple of the others at the after party in town. Had shots with him and gave me half his singlet, because they were playing this lets rip each others shirts to bits. Hes a great guy just normal as but the others were pretty "cool"...... and to make this story even more unbelievable one of our friends hooked up with one of the bmx guys (james someone) and shes been invited to the christchurch show.

    Re: nitro circus....

    Dunedin show was epic, favorite bit's for me was one of the bmx guy's pulling a super man double front flip and cam sinclair pulling a double backflip (crowd went crazy when both were landed). Also travis and levi were awesome as were the rest of the team. And yes the chick pulled from the crowd seemed to be a plant. Big up's to wheels aswell but unfortunately he couldn't stick the front flip but the team were there to pick him up.
