The Monster Energy S-X Open Auckland is New Zealand’s newest and biggest action sports event combining the best riders in the world across both Supercross and Freestyle Motocross (FMX) disciplines into one event.
The S-X Open Auckland will be the largest competitive action sports and Supercross event ever held in New Zealand, at Auckland’s Mt Smart Stadium on November 24.
Created by the founders of the hugely successful AUS-X Open event in Sydney, the S-X Open Auckland will bring motorsport fans more extreme action than ever seen in the city before, including home-grown talent against the world’s best.
The S-X Open Auckland is the most unique Supercross event compared to any other event in the world and in 2018 will be sanctioned by the Fédération Internationale de Motocyclisme with FIM Oceania status, and will form the final round of the Monster Energy S-X Open International Supercross FIM Oceania Championship (S-X Open Supercross Championship) in 2018, with the overall SX1 Champion being crowned in Auckland.
A Triple-Crown Final race format in both SX1 & SX2 classes will mean non-stop, a high-intensity action that will have fans on the edge of their seats, for the entire duration of the event.
FMX riders will contest the FMX ‘Best Trick’ competition with previous winners throwing down such tricks as Double Backflips, Bikeflips and Frontflips with fans in absolute awe of what these guys can do on their motorcycles.
Supercross is an innovative, faster, action-packed version of motocross, the sport’s original form. Motocross takes place on long purpose-built courses primarily on natural dirt and terrain. Supercross races are made from dirt hauled into stadiums with bigger jumps, massive banking turns, ruts and varying sized bumps, to amplify the experience for both rider and spectator.
Featuring the very best international athletes as well as New Zealand and Australia’s best for the first time ever in New Zealand, as well as live music and entertainment, giveaways, stunning pyrotechnics and more; the Monster Energy S-X Open Auckland is an entertainment extravaganza for all ages. There’s plenty of surprises yet to be announced, so stay tuned.
