Leading BMX freestyler Matti Hemmings is bringing his stunning skills, tricks and routines to Tigers in the Park.

Matti holds the Guinness World Record for the most cliff-hanger spins with one foot on the handle bars in one minute. He also holds the record for most Death Truck Spins in a minute, which he achieved live on the BBC’s popular children’s show Blue Peter.
He will showcase his talents at Tigers in the Park on Saturday, September 9, when Tigers celebrate the opening of the new Aviva Premiership season. Matti will be performing throughout the day and running exclusive workshops. Click here to see Matti in action.
