At the Long Beach International Motorcycle Show in December 2011 I was lucky to grab a few minutes with Phil Smage before he went out to perform his trials based stunt show with his brother Pat. Known as the Smage Brothers, they put on a dazzling display of ultimate motorcycle control as they dance over the trials playground on two wheels (and sometimes less, as will be seen).
In this video Phil explains how the brothers started riding, how Pat fared in the FIM World Trials Championship and how trials stunts differ from streetbike stunts. If you are visiting Cleveland this weekend for the Ohio stop on the IMS tour make sure you do not miss one of the many opportunities to watch the Smage Brothers Show. With Minneapolis, Chicago, Charlotte and Daytona still to come o the IMS tour, there will be a lot of opportunity for motorcycle fans across the country to witness the artful display riding technique Phil and Pat bring.
