CRUSTY Demons' superstar Blake 'Bilko' Williams has promised to put on a great show when he hits Gladstone as part of the Demons' tour on May 27.
The 19-year-old Victorian is one of the most popular Demons for his high-flying antics and is excited about being part of the Gladstone show.
'Mate, I can't wait to head up there, I think everyone in Gladstone will enjoy what we do,' Williams said.
'There are a number of new tricks many of the boys are working on for the upcoming tour ? so hopefully everyone in Gladstone will see them.'
Unlike many of the Crusty Demons, Williams has visited Gladstone a number of times before, due to his great friendships with the late Jono Porter and Kain Saul.
'I have been up your way a few times through knowing Jono and Kain, so I know what to expect,' he said.
'A lot of Gladstone people love their motocross, so I think a big crowd will be there to cheer us on.'
Like most of the Demons, Williams has a number of tricks in his repertoire and has promised to pull them out in the harbour city.
'Basically, I do a lot of backflips and side-to-side action which sees me let go of the bike at times,' he said.
And he won't be the only one, with Alaskan snowmobile rider Jimmy Blaze and quad bike back flipper Jon Guetter tipped by Williams to be Gladstone fan favourites.
'Jimmy and (Jon) Guetter are really popular everywhere we go, the fans just love it when they are in action ? they are great to watch,' he said.
Other big guns also expected to be in action are 'Mad' Mike Jones, X Games medallist Adam Jones and England's number one Luke Smith.
The Crusty Demons will roar at Marley Brown Oval on Saturday, May 27.
