Toyota NZ announced that the former X-Fighters freestyle motocross rider will become a brand ambassador for the company, traveling around New Zealand performing freestyle shows following his retirement from FMX competitions last November.
Toyota New Zealand’s General Manager of Marketing, Andrew Davis, said bringing Levi into the Toyota family as a Hiace Ambassador was a no-brainer.
“Levi is not only an amazing FMX rider but also a self-taught engineer who loves creating, customising and building motorcycle parts and ramps in his workshop.”
Over the past 10 years, Levi has become an international star on the FMX circuit. He wowed audiences in his first Red Bull X-Fighters competition and, despite a late call-up to replace another rider in the 2009 Mexico event, the then 17-year-old took out the first place against vastly more experienced riders.
He went on to build a career in X-Fighters and Nitro World Games. Over the past decade, Levi has been a regular rider in both the Crusty Demons and Nitro Circus shows. He is known for his dedication to training and continually pushing the boundaries in his performances.
Levi stepped back from competition at the end of 2019 and will be concentrating his time and attention on growing the sport in New Zealand and performing in shows throughout the country.
