2016 BOUNCE LOGO WHITE

Bounce Revolution Trampoline Park opened in Derby on 8 April 2016 with an addition not in the the owners’ original plans for Derby’s first trampoline park; a support program for eight-year-old motocross racing champion, Neo McCartney AKA Nitro Neo, who was crowned Derby’s Local Hero for using his high profile to help children’s charities.

Derby’s pocket rocket, Nitro Neo, started racing on a regional level when he was just six-Nitro Neo master kids jump Poster BRIGHTyears-old and by the age of seven he was not only competing against the best in the country in national championships, but also internationally! Neo joined a group of young racers who travelled to Europe last summer to represent Team GB at the International MX Master Kids where he beat 25 contenders from 14 countries in the final to become champion and score maximum points for Team GB.  You can watch the video of his epic adventure here.  He went on to finish fourth in his group in the British MX Cup and bagged Winter Champion to end the year on a high.  Neo is dedicated to improving his skills required for racing so the support offered by Bounce Revolution has literally got him jumping for joy as it complements the training program he’s developed for himself.

Neo’s latest partner, Bounce Revolution, adds to Derby’s diverse range of leisure facilities by offering an alternative way for all ages to stay healthy whilst having fun on 500 joined up trampolines, slam dunks, foam pits and air bags.  The trampoline park also boasts a cafe to ensure spectators are catered for; sumo-suit wrestling, wipeout rotating sweeper arms and Battle Beam all under one roof to make Bounce Revolution leaps and bounds ahead of conventional trampoline parks.

Guv Beesla, Marketing Director for Bounce Revolution said:

We decided to sponsor somebody local, somebody who could be an ambassador for our brand and truly benefit from our facilities; it had to be Nitro Neo, have you seen what he can do on a motorbike?  When we learned how hard this schoolboy works and the commitments required to compete at his level we wanted to get involved and support his development.  Neo gives everything 100% and he’s achieved a lot for somebody so young, he is going for his black belt in karate later this year, he’s completed his swimming awards and he’s now a Rookie Lifeguard, and he’s a motocross champion; he matches our ambition to work hard to maintain high standards and be successful.

Mr Beesla added:
The lifetime pass we’ve given him grants free entry to complement his training program by helping improve his balance, coordination and stamina.  10 minutes on our trampolines is the equivalent of jogging at a steady pace for 33 minutes.  Visitors get all of these benefits whilst having the time of their lifes!  We wish Neo well and our staff have already told me they look forward to his weekly visits as he is such a happy and lively character.
Motocross is the hardest sport on earth, athletes are dressed head to toe in protective gear.  You get blurred vision landing jumps; you’re manoeuvring a motorbike on ever changing terrain as no two laps are the same, ruts get deeper and bumps get bigger.  There’s up to forty riders in a race going all over the place.  Heart rates are anaerobic plus and you’ll lose count of how many times a rider stands up and down on their motorbike each lap.  You have to be strong, stable, coordinated and efficient because there’s no let up, there’s no teammate to handover to, you’re on your own; accelerating, braking, the clutch, changing gears, shifting your body and timing.  There is no end to the season, no end to the training, and no end to the risk of injury, it’s endless.  That’s why many believe it’s the hardest sport on earth.

Neo’s father and manager said:

We’re really pleased to form this partnership with Bounce Revolution, the Directors are forward thinking like ourselves and the support they’ve offered will make a big contribution to Neo’s development, the trampoline park offers a balance of improving fitness whilst enjoying yourself big time.  There are so many attributes required to remain competitive in motocross, fitness is a big component so this sponsorship is very important to us.

Neo shows you can achieve anything if you are motivated enough, he knows where he wants to get to and he isn’t afraid of putting in the work necessary to achieve his goals.

We established the Nitro Neo race team to help turn his racing aspirations in to reality because there is no motorbike or racing experience within his family.  Neo gets inspiration from professionals we work with in the industry and support from sponsors who believe in our inspirational youngster, they’ve contributed to his success and we appreciate all they do for us.

Although Neo is a racer he sure looks up to the FMX guys and gals who put it all on the line to give us extreme entertainment. So when I showed him this he wanted to share it with you to kill 1min 50secs of your time on something worth while 🙂

Wow, Jamie Dobb was at Fat Cat moto park on Wednesday and he remembered Nitro Neo from RCU 2013.

Jamie was kind enough to make time to sign Neo’s RCU cap and photo from passing out.

Nitro hopes to see you again soon Jamie!
