At 10:30am on Sunday, the TECT Rescue Helicopter was tasked to a Pongakawa Motocross track where a 56-year-old male had fallen from his bike.
The man suffered a serious back injury that required him to be flown to Middlemore Hospital.
He was treated at the scene by an event paramedic and the onboard Intensive Care Paramedic before being airlifted through to the hospital.
