Freestyle MotoX event approaches

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

Since you’re here… we have a small favour to ask. More and more people want the Post than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. The Post’s independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. With investigative reporting, we often don't know at the beginning how a story will unfold and how long it might take to uncover. This can mean it is costly – particularly as we often face legal threats that attempt to stop our reporting. But we remain committed to raising important questions and exposing wrongdoing. And we do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too. If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps to support it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as NZ$5, you can support the Post – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
