SHOPPERS were stunned by an adrenaline-fuelled display of extreme sports.

The UK’s top in-line skaters, skateboarders and BMX riders descended on McArthurGlen’s East Midlands Designer Outlet as part of the centre’s month-long Urban Life and Style celebration.

Team Extreme performed breath-taking stunts, tricks and manoeuvres in front of shoppers last Thursday.

Marketing manager Donna Goodwin said: “Urban Life and Style is all about celebrating some of our best-loved active brands as well as treating shoppers to something exciting and a little bit different.

“Team Extreme performed four electrifying shows, drawing crowds of shoppers and inspiring them to get involved in active fashion.”

Team Extreme also hosted a series of workshops, giving shoppers an exclusive chance to try out some of the tricks and manoeuvres they had seen.

A freerunning fashion show has already taken place with Thursday August 25 to see a thrilling Power Bocker display, as seen in the closing ceremonies of the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games, where performers jump and run with spring loaded stilts.

Other activities and experiences at the centre include:

Saturday 20th August: Compete against fellow shoppers with Game Console trials

Monday 22nd August: Trial professional stunt bikes with KMX Biking

Wednesday 24th August: Segway course with Adrenalin Jungle

Friday 26th August: Learn from the pro’s with a professional Skateboarding School
