thousands attend ally pally show

Organisers of the Devitt MCN Ally Pally Show and Supersprint over the weekend (22-23 September) report that thousands celebrated the event’s return to north London. A host of stars attended, competing on a wide variety of race bikes in an indoor sprint staged in the venue’s Great Hall.

Carl Fogarty, James Whitham, John McGuinness, Dougie Lampkin and Chris Walker competed in slalom, sprint and wheelie events for the crowd.

Bike builder Allen Millyard took his 250cc motocross-engined Honda SS50 down the Supersprint track too. “Anyone who thinks a 50-yard race isn’t exciting can go back to bed as far as I’m concerned.” Millyard’s SS50 was the envy of the celebrities and almost certainly the fastest bike on the course. “Riding down that straight with the adrenaline going, the sound reverberating back at you and that view. Where else in the world can you get that?”

Next up (after trade-only Expo 20-22 January, Stoneleigh Park) is the Carole Nash MCN London Motorcycle Show at ExCel in February 2019.
