Marvel Universe LIVE! Age of Heroes is a stage show put on by Feld Entertainment that is currently touring the United States. Some of the performers in the show ride trials bikes and when the tour came through Southern California, Feld Entertainment invited us to try some of the trials stunts performed during the live show. The only two we weren't allowed to try were the 14-foot splatter and the backflip. Having grown up competing in trials, I was selected for the assignment. We arrived at the Honda Center in Anaheim, California with a GasGas TXT Racing 300 trials bike and got an hour on stage to see what each stunt was all about.
At the end of the day, these performers are motorcycle riders first and stuntmen second. Each of them could compete at a high level in the sport and are very skilled riders. Be sure to check out the October 2017 issue of the magazine for more photos as well as my full evaluation of how challenging each stunt was.
