Timmy Egan’s dream is one step closer after the Full Throttle Stunts live show at Sugarland Tavern on Saturday wowed the crowd and raised more than $5000.
Full Throttle Stunts Adam Thurrowgood said he was blown away by the amount of people who turned up to the event, which was organised in short space of time.
The stunt show was organised to support Bundaberg freestyle rider Timmy Egan after he lost his FMX truck and equipment in a fire.
“It really was incredible – I was impressed by the crowd and the amount of people who came to watch and help support Timmy,” Adam said.
“I think we raised about $5500 and this will go to either rebuilding or replacing the truck,” he said.
Adam believed most of the crowd was new to watching stunt bikes and they were impressed by the performance.
“I think they were all fairly new and the show was incredibly well received,” he said.
“If you have never seen this type of riding before you’d think it’s pretty impressive.
“Most people may see people in the street do a wheelie but when they are standing in front at a show, they realise it is a totally different ball game.”
Full Throttle Stunts to perform again
Adam is one of Australia’s top stunt riders. He said it's important to know how to handle the bike when performing in front of a large audience.
“We have so much control over the bike and that impresses people,” he said.
Adam travelled from Brisbane to perform to raise money to support Timmy and thanked everyone who has given their time and money to help.
Next Saturday another Full Throttle Stunt Show will be held at the Frogs Hollow Bike Show at Apple Tree Creek for anyone who missed yesterday’s performance.
The Frogs Hollow Bike Show returns for its 15th year and is set to be bigger and better than ever.
It will be held at the Apple Tree Creek Sports Ground from 10am on 7 September 2019. For more information click here.
