SANTA MONICA, CA – September 25, 2015 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – The Progressive® International Motorcycle Shows® (IMS), the most influential touring consumer motorcycle show in the U.S., today signed television star and stunt riding icon, Jason Britton and Team No Limit, to perform new thrilling stunts during the 2015/2016 Tour. Show attendees from Long Beach to New York City will have the chance to see Britton and his new stunt partner and former National Football League (NFL) player, Ian Gaines, perform multiple, heart-pounding shows each weekend, sometimes mere feet away from the action.
This Tour, Team No Limit offers IMS attendees a radical new show featuring fresh, edge-of-your-seat stunts. With the recent addition of Gaines, the team brings a new dynamic to the stunt ring that includes daring shuffles; kick flip bunny hops and shocking kangaroo stoppies all while riding the latest, greatest Kawasaki ZX6R bikes.
Tracy Harris, Senior Vice President, Powersports Group, UBM Advanstar: “When we asked one of the biggest names in stunt riding to return to the IMS Tour for a second season, Britton wanted to give our attendees something fresh. For the upcoming Tour, he and Gaines have developed a brand new show with cutting-edge motorcycles and enhanced stunts to engage and energize the IMS crowd. In addition to over 500 motorcycles on the Show floor, the price of admission includes live stunt performances with new material from an internationally known superstar.”
Britton and Team No Limit are among the world’s top stunt teams. Their performances at IMS will give thousands of Show attendees across the U.S. the chance to see these skilled dare-devils perform live and in person.
