This morning the TECT Rescue Helicopter was dispatched to a trail ride event near Matata.
A 42-year-old man crashed his motocross bike into a tree and received serious chest injuries as a result.
He was stabilised at the scene by the onboard Intensive Care Paramedic before being flown to Tauranga Hospital in a serious condition.
