Onza's Joe Seddon shows off his moves at Cycle 2008 Joe Coales
Onza distributors Moore Large & Co are bringing their trials demo team to BikeRadar Live at Donington Park next weekend.
The squad features some of the UK's top young talents, and riders confirmed for the show include UK elite champion Ben Savage, 2007 elite champ Joe Seddon and new signing Jack Meek.
Andrei Burton, who finished sixth in last season's UCI world rankings, will be on the mic rather than performing due to a torn ligament.
Onza's Joe Poyzer said: "It'll be a great introduction to trials. Drei does what's almost a tutorial, with Joe riding and him on the mic. He explains what trials is, how to do it, how to get into the sport, etc.
"We'll be doing displays throughout the weekend – whenever there's enough of a crowd by the Moore Large stand. We'll have one 20in and one 26in rider each day. They'll be doing the typical stuff, like dropping off 8ft high obstacles. Jack can do front flips on his trials bike now too."
Trials fans can also check out the Animal Relentless Bike Tour at BikeRadar Live, which will feature trials legend Martyn Ashton, street riding sensation Danny MacAskill and dirt jump star Sam Pilgrim.
