“I’ve always wanted to go to Auckland and, with the calibre of riders heading to the event, I think fans will be stoked to witness an event of this magnitude. I think it’s going to blow their minds,” Villopoto said in a statement. “I had an awesome time racing with BT [Ben Townley] in the ‘States. We were always talking about heading to New Zealand to race together there and it’s finally going to happen.”
