Eljay has no fear

ALL eyes were on stuntman Eljay Driessens for his one-of-a kind performance at Show Whitsunday this afternoon.

Eljay is one of Australia's top riders and when you watch him in action, it's clear to see why.

The stuntman performed multiple stunts, including bounding up ramps connected to the tour truck at ranging heights.

Running the Eljay Show for 20 years, Driessens said he loved performing the challenging stunts and got a buzz each time he finished a performance .

"I love watching the excitement in people's reactions," he said.

"It's great to leave a show and know we've excited and entertained the crowd."

Alongside him today was fellow stuntwoman, long-time friend and world title holder, Janine Jungfels, who performed some of her own bike stunts.

This year was the first Ms Jungfels has performed at the Eljay Show and she said she loved the challenges stunt riding put in front of her. "It takes years to learn everything and it can be very tricky," she said.

"The shows are really great and it's awesome to be able to go across Australia."

The duo shared their unique friendship in their performance, entertaining the crowd with some of their own light-hearted comedy.

The Eljay Show will run again this evening at 7pm so make sure you don't miss out.
