THIS YEAR a new death-defying and extreme circus is descending on Ireland as part of its World tour. A one-of-a-kind performance that has been five years in the making and features some of the most talented performers in the world.

Just back from the European Championship, the EXTREME ® FMX team will be bringing you its jaw-dropping stunts to the Big Top as our pilots fly through the air displaying cliff-hanger stunts such as the superman, seat grab and nac nac to name a few. Battling for air space, our resident riders are sure to get the adrenaline pumping as they defy gravity with incredible mid-air backflips.
Our EXTREME ® stunt riding team will also be performing the Globe of Death, the most death-defying act ever demonstrated! This incredible stunt will put the performers under G-force similar to that of a fighter pilot. Watch as they loop vertically and horizontally all while encased in a mesh sphere. This really is one for the petrolheads!
