13. Description of the core message of your event and key topics to be covered (c.100 words):
An awesome, adrenaline-fuelled live stunt show that uncovers the science behind extreme sports using back-flipping freerunners and world-class trials riders.
MC-ed by TV Science Presenter Greg Foot, Extreme Sports Battle: The Science explores the science and tech involved as daredevil trials riders face up against mind-blowing free-runners to find out who reigns supreme – Man or Machine?
A lesson from the pros introduces the vaults, rolls, wheelies and bunny hops that propel both man and machine over and around their urban playground as our host deconstructs the physiology and physics behind each one. Then the Battle begins as the experts climb and jump over our giant 8ft scaffolding rig, competing in ever more spectacular bouts.
