If you are a big fan of Danny or stunts on bikes then this may be the show for you. I was purely looking for a entertaining show and whist the stunts are impressive and I'm aware of how skilled the performers are the show dragged. The show is aimed to children and the compare consumed most of the show with spoilers. I appreciate that Danny still performed whilst injured (#hardasnails) however public speaking does not play to his strengths.

It contains 40% of bike action and 60% of compering which detracts from the stunts and fragments the show. Although the tricks were good and impressive far too much of the show was in dead time from the irritating compare. The compare only pre-described what they were going to do (spoiling the surprise) and getting the audience to cheer louder to get the guys to do the stunt. The only thing the compere did which did not detract from the show was to get volunteers to do superfluous aspects of the show. With three bicyclists there was no reason why it could have been continuous stunts without a compere. The cyclists did not do collaborative sections which would make the show more interesting.

Terrible value for money - I went on the gala show which was £26 and no different to any other show, it was late to start, letting people hang about outside in the pouring rain for no reason, the show itself is ok for kids with a clown/compere and throwing out freebies but its not an adult show and shouldn't be £26! I've been to 100s of shows in the festival over the last 30 years and this was by far the worst. I'm a big fan of Danny but this is an ill thought out show, massively overpriced and needs some professional expertise to make it work.

The Scotsman (4/5 stars) 25 days ago

But when he’s lured back on to his bike, with overdone fanfare by ringmaster Henry Jackson, an extreme sports commentator, his body still shows a particular fluidity, a slow measured grace: the Roger Federer of trials cyclists. He vaults sideways from platform to platform, reprises a bit of his Edinburgh...
