Preparations for this years Quirindi Show are in full throttle, with Evel Kinevel inspired motorcycle stunt rider, Chris Bayles set to thrill.
The daredevil on two wheels who has been riding motorbikes since the age of eight is looking forward to entertaining the crowd with his high-octane heart stopping moves.
“I love the thrill and the adrenaline of performing daredevil tricks. It’s going to be fun to bring something different tho this years Quirindi show and add some motorsport drama to the weekend,” Chris enthused.
The 24 year old is heading to Paris for two weeks next month to support and mentor the International Motorbike stunt riding team.
“It’s going to be fun to take the energy of our sport to an international level. And the experiences I have in Paris are going to add to my Quirindi performance at the Show in September,” Chris continued.
Chris, who hails from Tasmania, is the recipient of the AgVance Liverpool Plains Scholarship at Marcus Oldham College. He is currently undertaking his Industry Placement Year with local AgVance members and is sponsored by the group to perform at this years show.
“Chris is a very worthy recipient of the Scholarship, showing his enthusiasm for the Agricultural industry. We hope that as Chris finishes his 11 months with the AgVance group and his Bachelor of Business that he considers coming back to this area,’ said Natalie Eade on behalf of AgVance Farming.
Manuka Chaff will be supplying the stunt rider with the 30-40 pallets and the 45-foot drop deck trailer he will use in his performance.
Chris is at the highest level of skill in his sport and is set to be one of the many highlights at the show.
Also in full swing are preparations for this years Quirindi Showgirl event, with coordinator Ruth Bock encouraged by the large number of nominees showing interest.
“We are looking for a good rural ambassador and the local show is a great opportunity for local girls to experience the interview process and meet other like minded people,” said Ruth.
The winner of the Quirindi Show section goes to a zone final and if successful has the opportunity to participate at the Sydney Royal Easter Show.
“Those wishing to enter should look to getting a sponsor and contact me direct to register their interest,” continued Ruth.
Tickets for the Showgirl Ball to be held at the Quirindi RSL Club on August 24th will go on sale early next month.
