PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — The “Nuclear Cowboyz” are back in town.
The daredevils of freestyle motocross perform this weekend at CONSOL Energy Center.
On Friday morning, the show’s operations director, Jayme Dalsing, says 60 workers will set up 10 trailer loads of sets and equipment by 8 p.m.
“It takes them about 12 hours to unload and get everything set up,” Dalsing said. “So, one trailer’s our turf that we bring in, a couple trailers hold the lighting, and a couple trailers hold the ramps.”
Dirt bike riders Brody Wilson and Adam Jones, a Warrendale native, say experience helps them calm any pre-performance jitters.
“Obviously, I’m aware of what can happen, and I’d rather it not happen,” Jones says. “But this is what we do, and most of the time we’re pretty calm and composed and, you know, just concentrate.”
Wilson says bumps, bruises and broken bones go with the territory.
“I broke and dislocated both my wrists, and my collar bone a few times, my shoulder blades, both ankles. There all pretty minor,” he said. “Just a few months off the bike, and get back into it.”
The “Nuclear Cowboyz” shows take place Saturday at 7:30 p.m and Sunday afternoon at 2 p.m. at CONSOL Energy Center.
