Pukekohe’s Nick Franklin will be riding alongside international X Games star Levi Sherwood at the Mike Pero MotoFest at Hampton Downs early March.
Along with Caleb Delacy from Auckland, the trio of freestyle motocross riders who are Red Bull X Fighters, will be showing their skills at New Zealand’s biggest motorcycle event on Saturday 3 and Sunday 4 March.
“Caleb, Nick and I will be doing three shows a day and everything that you would see on television,” Levi said. “We will be mingling during the day and doing signings as well.”
A highlight will be the Motul Stadium Trials Challenge, featuring New Zealand’s best moto trials riders.
There will be a large contingent of classic racing bikes on the track while enthusiasts can book a track session for themselves. There is a public trail ride on offer and plans for a massive bike show. For tickets and further details go to www.hamptondowns.com
