During the day current British Freestyle Unicycle Competition winner 'Lucas the One-Wheel Wonder', sponsored by Qu-Ax and Plain Lazy also demonstated his unbelievable dexterity showing what can be achieved through years of practice of extreme unicycling.

The Haldon Mountainbike Club invited everyone to test their own skills on the obsatcle course, while Andrei Burton, Champion Mounatin Bike Stunt Trials Rider, sponsored by Saltrock also did his very spectacular show, courtesy of the CYCLE EXETER CAMPAIGN.
