All revved up for Devon County Show

When I'm revving up on the quad bike ready to speed up a ramp 30ft high and fly over a line of vehicles below, the adrenaline starts to kick-in," said ex-world championship Motocross rider Jason Smyth who will be appearing at Devon County Show - May 21-23.
Jason, who lives near Exeter, added: "There's always a bit of fear lurking in the back of my mind, no matter how often I perform these stunts, and I think it helps to keep my reactions razor-sharp."
He needs to have lightening reactions to safely execute these exciting stunts as he handles heavy machinery in extraordinary circumstances.
"A quad bike is a lot heavier and harder to manoeuvre than a motorbike and it's essential that I keep it level and in a steady line in order to land properly."
