Freestyle motocross (FMX) legend Carey Hart, in conjunction with his wife, international recording artist P!NK are pleased to announce a series of free-to-the-public, lifestyle events to be held alongside selected stops of her Funhouse Tour.

Presented by Holden and the Holden Ute, the Hart & Huntington Freestyle Tour will provide Australians with a no cost, refreshing celebration of modern day cool and the lifestyle that the Hart and Huntington brand represents - the art, the fashion, the music, the bikes, the cars, the culture.

Each event will run for three hours and incorporate a full program of free entertainment including a mind-blowing FMX show starring Hart, the man who pioneered the sport of freestyle motocross and was the first person in the world to backflip a motorcycle.

Hart, who is currently in the process of selecting a number of talented Australian FMX riders to perform alongside him said he was pumped to be giving something back to both he and wife P!NK's fans in these times of economic uncertainty.

"We are all too aware of what Australian's have been enduring with the floods, fires and financial crisis so we decided it was time everyone there had the opportunity to have a good time," Hart explained.

"Australia and its people have been so good to my wife and I over the years and we honestly feel like this is our home away from home."

FMX, stunt demonstrations, music, street art, fashion, custom bikes and cars will all be part of the Hart & Huntington Freestyle Tour schedule.

"The sort of action that you will see on the Hart and Huntington Freestyle Tour would normally cost around the $80.00 mark," Hart continued.

"We want this to be a real reward for fans of the sport and wider culture that has provided me with so many opportunities.

"We have some great support for the Tour with Holden, my own company Hart & Huntington Tattoo Co and a number of my personal sponsors including Rockstar Energy Drink and Fox all coming on board to ensure these events happen."

The Hart and Huntington Freestyle Tour presented by Holden will kick off in Melbourne on Saturday May 30 and will visit Newcastle, Sydney and Brisbane before concluding with a spectacular Gold Coast event on Saturday 20th June.
