Found a clip of some of the highlights from the "Clan" show.
One not covered here is an event that not many people witnessed. I wish this was on film. Danny Mcaskell does a funny trick of jumping over the bunneybar and letting his bike go under,then landing back on the pedals. The "have a go hero" BMX rider in the white helmet is called "Nash", who had a go! His jump over the bar was fine, however he landed well behind the bike on all fours. THe display had finished and most septators had moved away. Now usually an unriden bike quickely falls over, but not this one. Nash looked up saw his bike plowing directely towards some women with young children about 20 yards away, they where not looking at the oncoming bike. THe bike was determined not to fall over,and Nash looked unlikely to get there in time, and alerting them to the danger would properly result in them turning around just as the bike hit. Nash has the words "lawsuite" in his head, as he desperately runs after the bike.
Fortunately the blissfully unaware "victums to be" happened to turn around, and took one step calmly to the side. Nash had dived spectacularly to grab the bike by one hand on the rear wheel rim at full lenght strech, and then whilst still prone holding on to his bike, in a very claim manner uttered ,"sorry about that!"
I know I have not done the incident justice ,as I laughed so hard at the time.
