Spellbinding stunts on show

Around 100 enthusiasts braved the blazing sun to witness the competition. However, one could not find any women at this testosterone charged event.
Over 20 entries were there in the competition, which was divided into five categories: two stroke freestyle, four stroke freestyle, Moped freestyle, Slowest Wheelie and Longest Rolling Wheelie. 

Aniket, who founded the club, revealed that Bangalore has a lot of bike enthusiasts.
“All interested people get together every Sunday and practice. It would be great if the government would give us separate infrastructure to pursue our passion so that we won’t have to use the normal roads.”

Yuva Kumar and Abhijeet Shetty are childhood friends who have been practising bike stunts for nearly three years now.

“My favourite stunt is the wheelie. There are so many variations to it and each is more challenging than the other. Yes, I have been injured a few times but it’s worth it,” said Yuva.

Abhijeet, on the other hand, practices it only as a hobby. “I have broken a few bones and my family is not entirely happy but I pursue it because I love it. Scooter freestyling is my favourite as there is a lot of scope to perform stunts.”
The finalists performed an array of dangerous stunts in a bid to win the competition. Wheelies were undoubtedly the favourite amongst participants.
Some of them “wheelied” for much longer than the required distance.
These stunts were rather dangerous and those with weak hearts were better off not viewing it.
