When the Circus came to the Snow!

Roll Up, Roll Up! We invited the cast of Circus Extreme to Snow Factor for some stunts and silliness on the snow (it is 30 degrees and 350% humidity outside after all)

The high octane Circus Extreme returns to Braehead this week. With Scotland basking in near record temperatures, the ice cool daredevils with internationally renowned Circus Extreme hit the snow and ice to show off some of their spectacular high-flying stunts.

As thermometers soar outside, the Circus Extreme FMX riders found the perfect way to keep cool by performing death defying motorbike jumps on our real snow slope. They took our breath away with the skill and precision used not only to ride up the slope but also to throw the machine off our kickers and land the jumps.

Clowning Around!

In true clown style, Henry couldn’t resist grabbing one of the slope teams shaping shovels and going rogue down the slope. What more could we expect from such a mischievous clown like Henry 😀

The cast performed some incredible stunts, including juggling while suspended on the 12m high ice-walls (not your average day for Henry, Circus Extreme’s resident Clown), and throwing some big shapes over our freestyle kickers on their bikes. Our Snowboard Instructor Nathan even got in on the fun soaring over the troops dancers on his board.

We love a bit of the old ‘Top Gear’ style race here at Snow Factor and what better a race than Snowboard V’s Motorbike down the main slope! The bike won on this occasion although we reckon our Snow Factor Pro’s could have given Circus Extreme a real run for their money.

Circus Extreme are in Glasgow for the last of their Scottish Tour, and if they can pull stunts like this on snow, we can’t wait to see them in action!!!
