Ben Townley comes out of retirement.

The AUS-X Open, an Australian event that has taken the Southern Hemisphere by storm, is expanding. The promoters will be running their first event in Auckland, New Zealand, in November, named the Monster Energy S-X Open. Details were sparse initially, but some big news has dropped.

Ben Townley, a former world champion, is coming out of retirement to tackle the event and will face stiff opposition in the form of Justin Brayton, the current Australian indoor champion. Additional details will be released in due course. “Having an event of this calibre coming to Auckland, you know superstars coming to New Zealand to race supercross,” Townley said. “It’s something that I have waited all my life to see so I can’t wait for November 24 and see Mt. Smart Stadium full of clay and full of spectators. It’ll be an awesome atmosphere.”

Mt. Smart Stadium is an awesome venue, 25,000 seats and it is a full-size field so we can put a full-size international supercross track in there, and it’s going to be really cool to see for both riders and spectators, which will create a fantastic atmosphere,” he continued. “I expect the place [Mt Smart Stadium] to be full, it is a great venue and there is a massive motorcycling community in Auckland, who will love to see an event like this. Supercross is a great spectacle, not only is it great racing it is the whole show. There will be pyrotechnics and loads of things for the fans to get involved with during the day, meet-n-greet the riders, autograph sessions and it’s just going to be a really great atmosphere on November 24.”
