BMX bandits enjoyed a wheelie good time when a regional event rolled into town at the weekend.

Summerhill Country Park, off Catcote Road, hosted the final round of the North East BMX regional series on Sunday.

Daredevil riders raced down six downhill straights and five dirt tracks, watched by a healthy crowd who lined the route around the park.

As well as the racing, some younger bike fans took the opportunity to practice their own skills during a packed afternoon.
