MONTE VISTA— Rev up your engines and come to the Octane Addictions Motorcycle Stunt Show happening this weekend as part of the annual SLV Potato Festival on Sept. 7.

Their business has been built around some of the most talented and extreme riders in the world. “We do this for our fans!” they said in a statement on their Facebook page. “You guys make it all worthwhile for us! We can bring the sickest aerial stunt shows available right to your hometown! We look forward to bringing the extreme to you.”
Linda Weyers, assistant director of the Colorado Potato Administrative Committee (CPAC), said, “The people who saw it last year loved it, and they can hardly wait to see it again.” The show is also very family-friendly and provides exciting, clean entertainment everyone can enjoy.
