My first experience to take in a freestyle motocross event set the bar pretty high.
We attended the Nuclear Cowboyz show at US Bank Arena in Cincinnati.
The show had a little bit of everything.
It was a theatrical style presentation filled with pyrotechnics, lights, dancing and freestyle motocross that will blow your mind as bikes travel through the air with their riders performing incredible stunts.
The storyline is set in the future and is a battle of good vs. evil.
The soundtrack of the show is a combo of techno and metal. If you are bringing younger guests with sensitive ears, I suggest bringing earplugs or purchasing them at the arena. Fortunately my kids are probably the perfect age to enjoy this event.
The pyrotechnics and laser lights show took the stunts to a whole nether level.
I will note that I am super jumpy at unexpected noises and I ironically jumped out of my seat way more than my kids as the pyrotechnics went off during the show.
That was my first time ever seeing that many motocross riders doing stunts at an event. They were incredible!
My pictures don’t do it justice!
The riders made difficult tricks like the “Superman” and the “Kiss of Death” look effortless.
Here is youtube footage of what the show is like.
The tour features 2012 X games medalists Ronnie Faisst, Mike Mason, Taka Higashino. There are also other popular riders from the winter x games. The show incorporates the Metal Mullisha and the Soldiers of Havoc into the plot to bring victory.
You can still catch a Nuclear Cowboyz show on Sunday January 20th in Cincinnati. The Nuclear Cowboyz will also be touring the country. Check out the Nuclear Cowboyz website to find a tour in a city near you. You can also check out their facebook page.
