VIDEO: Child rides motorbike through burning wall

AUSTRALIA'S own 12-year-old Evil Knievel, Ryan Andrews-Young is ready to set Lismore speedway alight on Saturday when he rides through three walls of fire on his motorbike.

The 12-year-old daredevil will be just one of the highlights at this Saturday night's Monster Truck Monster Slam Christmas Freestyle Spectacular.

One of the world's only female monster truck drivers, Canada's Liv Yorston, will be part of the motorsport and pyrotechnics spectacular, driving the monster truck Spot.

Freestyle motocross legend Matt Schubring will wow the crowds with backflips and massive jumps, while a jet powered quad bike will continue the hot action.

The Monster Truck Monster Slam Christmas Freestyle Spectacular kicks off at 6pm with tickets available at the gate.
