Man Versus Machine

Andrei Burton and Pip ‘Trix’ Andersen

After thrilling the crowds enjoying the Milntown sunshine in 2016, we are delighted to welcome back the world mountain bike trials rider, Andrei Burton, who will be performing across the weekend alongside his trials partner Owen Gawthorpe and top freerunner Pip ‘Trix’ Andersen in a spectacular new show!

Famous for his tricks on a Brompton Bike in the Berocca TV ad, the UK Ninja Warrior will this time be bringing his MAN VERSUS MACHINE show to Milntown, where he and Owen will do battle with Pip in a bid to thrill the audience the most with their jaw-dropping tricks. Who wins is up to you!

Looking forward to a return trip to the Isle of Man, Andrei is hoping to not just wow our festivalgoers, but also inspire our local young talents:

“Our shows are an excellent way to inspire and motivate children on a number of levels. Providing them with the opportunity to see inspirational shows like these can help them develop their own goals and aspirations and often provides them with the determination to achieve them. Their goals don’t have to be cycling related either, these shows emphasise the importance of practice and determination for anything you are trying to achieve and show that if you try hard and put your effort into something, you never know what you might be!”

You can catch three versions of the Man Versus Machine show each day. All our events are absolutely free on entry to Milntown, so grab your discounted tickets today from
