The world’s best Supercross and Freestyle Motocross riders are heading to our shores to compete in a high-octane, action-packed event at Mt Smart Stadium in November – the Monster Energy S-X Open.

The first event of its kind for New Zealand, the Monster Energy S-X Open Auckland kicks off on November 24, showcasing the greatest international talent on two wheels in an official FIM recognised competition.

Created by the founders of the popular AUS-X Open event in Sydney, S-X Open Auckland will bring motorsport fans more extreme action than ever seen in the city before, including home-grown talent.

The event also forms the second and final round of the new Monster Energy S-X Open Supercross FIM Oceania Championship, meaning Auckland will play host to the grand final of a new championship series which promises to be the largest off-road motorcycling series outside of the USA.

Organisers will announce the line-up in coming days, and event co-founder and director Adam Bailey is calling all sports and adrenaline fans to come and be a part of motorsport history in November.

“This will be the biggest action sports event to ever hit Auckland and we’re incredibly excited to be bringing our show across the ditch,” says Adam Bailey.

“We know how much Kiwis love their motorsport and there’s no more extreme version of motorsport than Supercross in a world-class stadium with the world’s best riders laying it all on the line. New Zealand has some amazing riders and this will be their very best opportunity to show the world what they can do against the best from Australia and the USA.”

S-X Open Auckland will feature pyrotechnics, live music and first-class concert-like entertainment values at the Mt Smart Stadium. There will be a pit paddock area accessible on the outside of the stadium for all motorsport fans to get up close and personal with their favourite teams and riders. It promises to be an amazing spectacle for all ages to enjoy.

“We’re well underway with plans to not only secure an incredible line-up of riders but have a whole host of announcements that will excite fans. There’s nowhere you’d rather be than in Auckland on November 24!” says Adam Bailey.

Adam Bailey and his team will soon announce the athlete line-up, the racing schedule and more details.
