Franklin in sec­ond slot

South Waikato News - - SPORT -

Nick Franklin had to set­tle for sec­ond at the Red Bull FMX Bat­tle in Wan­ganui in late De­cem­ber.

Toko­roa-born Franklin won the event in 2009 but was pipped by Aus­tralian-based Crusty De­mon rider Steve Mini in 2010.

The sec­ond plac­ing capped off a stel­lar year for Franklin, 29. Af­ter wow­ing his home crowd at the su­per­cross event in Jan­uary, Franklin headed over­seas for the Red Bull X-Fight­ers World Se­ries tour.
