BIKE stunts and street dance crews will hit Portsmouth this summer.

One of the biggest BMX stunt shows will take place at Gunwharf Quays on June 22 and 23.

The Extreme Festival is returning for a second year after the success it had last year when crowds gathered to watch their skills.

Effraim Catlow, former World BMX Freestyle champion, will be one of the cyclists on show along with BMX duo Zero Gravity.

Effraim said: ‘I started BMX training at the age of 10 after visiting the Southsea skatepark and became hooked.

‘It’s amazing to be taking part in the Extreme event. BMX flatland riding is a brilliant social sport.

‘I can’t wait to create a buzz amongst the crowds.’

Hip hop dance group Breakin’ Convention will perform their show-stopping routines and invite the public to learn new moves with their free workshops.

Ian Hart, centre director at Gunwharf Quays said: ‘Our Extreme event is always a big hit with visitors and we’re very excited to welcome such world class acts for the first time.

‘We welcome families to come and watch the fantastic displays for themselves and make a day of it.’
