Oz MX: MXTV to go out with a bang in season finale tonight


Australia’s favourite dirt bike show, MXTV – is heading your way tonight  with a massive final episode.

The boys have pulled out all the stops to bring you one last action-packed show in what has been one of the biggest and best MXTV series to date.

Tonight’s final episode is jam-packed with viewer favourites as always, including a trip down memory lane in another ‘Where are they now’ segment when the boys drop in on 1983 Mr Motocross champion Ray ‘Goof’ Vandenburg.

Vandenburg’s unique riding style and talent brought him to the forefront of the national race scene at the tender age of 19, but sadly injuries forced him from sport almost as quickly as he’d arrived.

In this revealing and entertaining segment we find out a bit more about Goof’s short but stellar career, his amazing championship winning season in ’83, how he dealt with leaving the sport prematurely, and what he’s been up to since he finished racing.

That’s not all though, as tonight’s episode also includes some exploration around the trails of the Wombat state forest, Chad’s back with another great mechanical tip, and in an Australian first ‘The Fro’ puts the acid on the brand-spanking-new 2010!

That’s right; the 2010 Suzuki RMZ 450 – and with the MXTV test track and conditions unlike any other time this series, it’s a must see for all dirt bike fans!

Make sure that you don’t miss a minute of the action this week – to check out the latest offerings from MXTV tune in to Aurora Channel 183 Foxtel/Austar on Tuesday 4 August at 8pm.
