EXTREME athletes Ben Savage (current trial riding world champion), Darryl Brown (mountain bike world record holder), Matti Hemmings (five-time Guinness World Recorder holder), Scott Wilson (former MTB Trials World champion) and James Jones (Welsh BMX champion) will take over the West Car Park at Twickenham Stadium before the match, providing demonstrations on various ramps and obstacles.

The build up to kick-off in the stadium will see further action around the hallowed turf of Twickenham Stadium. The riders will combine with free runners, Bogdan Pascal and Luke Madigan, to create an engaging and jaw dropping display. The eagerly anticipated ball delivery is going to be the most daring to date.

This pre-match show will be synchronised to a bespoke music mix by a world leading music producer, highlighting tracks that will remind supporters of 2016, a year to remember.

Like Harlequins, EXTREME is an iconic brand. EXTREME encompasses action sports, music and art. Their athletes and ambassadors are involved in major global events, stunts and parties which are streamed across the world.

Big Game 9, a firm favourite in the Premiership calendar, provides an atmosphere like no other as Aviva Premiership rugby is combined with off field entertainment, pyrotechnic displays and a fun festive day out for friends and family.

Ryan Maxwell, EXTREME’s Marketing Manager, said: “It’s an absolute privilege for EXTREME to be working with Harlequins during Big Game 9 at Twickenham Stadium. Creating amazing entertainment is at the heart of what EXTREME does and we know that it plays a huge part of the Big Game experience. The day will be an unrivalled spectacle from start to finish.

“Supporters will be able to interact and have access like never before across our powerful social media platforms, providing an exclusive behind-the-scenes insight and we can’t wait.”

Harlequins back-row, Luke Wallace added: “Big Game is one of the headline matches for us as players. Twickenham Stadium is an incredible venue to play rugby in and we are looking forward to another great match against Gloucester Rugby on December 27th. Big Game is more than just the rugby; it is an incredible day out and with EXTREME providing stunts and displays, there will be fun for everyone.”
