Factory FMX to bring stunt show to 2018 Wimmera Machinery Field Days

DARING motocross stunts will again feature at the Wimmera Machinery Field Days this year.

Factory FMX will bring its live shows to the Longerenong event, performing three shows each day.

Two professional riders will showcase tandem jumps and the latest mid-air tricks leaping distances of more than 70 feet long and 30 feet high.

O’Connors Farm Machinery will provide tractors and other equipment for the stunt riders to jump over.

Factory FMX owner Josh Burdon said this was the fourth year the team would return to the field days.

“We will be doing three shows a day, and each one will go for about 20 minutes,” he said.

“It’s a freestyle motocross show, where we will perform lots of new tricks and jump high into the air.

“We will also have a range of new merchandise there for people to buy and we will have some giveaways during each show as well.”

Mr Burdon said it was a great family show that always attracted a large crowd of children.

“Kids are really supportive and we love performing for them,” he said.

“We have people come back and watch us every year and we always get lots of kids that love to come and have a look.”

Mr Burdon said the Factory FMX team had been busy performing stunt shows internationally since last year’s field days.

“We’ve had a busy year since we were in the region last – we spent three months in China performing 130 shows,” he said.

“It’s great for the team to travel around, but we are looking forward to coming back to the Wimmera.

“We’ve also performed at Etihad Stadium during the Big Bash competition – we are very lucky to be able to attend great events all over Australia.”

Factory FMX will not only bring their bikes and equipment, but will set up huge portable ramps at the field days.

“We have a lot of new equipment that is really easy to transport and set up,” Mr Burdon said.

“It isn’t too difficult to bring it all to the field days, and that’s a great advantage of this unique sport, we can do it anywhere.”

The Factory FMX show will be at the O’Connors Farm Machinery site at 10.30am, 12.30pm and 2.30pm each day.
