Nitro Circus antics keep crowd guessing

ZAYDEN Hill's mum, Crystal Skinner, is just a little worried after seeing the look on his face as motorbikes zoomed through the air at Nitro Circus.

The little tyke has his own PW-50 motorbike and felt pretty inspired by the gravity defying antics on show down at the Toowoomba Showgrounds on Saturday.

Probably the best she can hope for is that he might stick to motorbikes instead of taking to a ramp more than 15 metres high in an esky or a Barbie Cruiser like some of the thrill seeking stars of the show.

Toowoomba residents were obviously expecting a top notch show, with thousands of people walking through the gates for some adrenalin-fuelled action.

But very few Nitro Circus newbies would ever have expected the hilarious antics.

Not only were talented freestyle motocross riders, BMX riders and skateboarders defying gravity at the exciting display, but also people on contraptions such as a boogie board with wheels (the rider was even wearing flippers), a snowboard with wheels, a kids' trike and a bobsled.

Add fireworks, balls of fire and comic relief and most of the crowd was either laughing uproariously or open-mouthed at the thrilling stunts.
