THOUSANDS of motorcycle enthusiasts flocked to the Suffolk Showground in what has been deemed the best ever Copdock Motorcycle Show.
The 12th Copdock Motorcycle Show, which took place in Ipswich's showground yesterday , attracted crowds of up to 15,000 and raised thousands for local charities.
This year's highlights included the X-treme Trials display team, in which two of Europe's top trial riders Martin Crosswaite and Dan Clark performed jumps up 12ft vertical walls, drop-offs, wheelies, stoppies and jumps across platforms.
Another first for the motorcycle show was the performance by Ipswich Samba Band, whose lively music and dance act proved a real crowd-pleaser.
