KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- The athletes who put on Nuclear Cowboys are trained to take big risks to advance the sport of motorcross.
They do all they can to live up to their names.
Brody Wilson's stunts in the show are so death defying his mom is afraid to watch.
"She does come watch and she is nervous but my dad is pumped on it," Wilson said.
The riders flip, spin and fly with their bikes 30 feet in the air. The make it look easy.
"That's s a holy grab to double Indian Air," said Matt Buyten. "You aren't even touching the bike and then throw the bike away and grab the grab holds."
During the show there are pyrotechnics, lasers and dancers as well as fire.
The organizers say kids love it.
"It's a lot more kid friendly than ever," said stunt coordinator Micky Dymond. "We have a cyborg army that has lasers and at certain points in the show it looks like a video game...so kids walk away loving the show and it caters to a lot broader audience than we ever have."
The weapons on the evil tempest's ride are loaded. The young guns in the show are ready to pull the trigger on a night full of drama, action, speed and extreme stunts.
