FMX World Tour
After the most spectacular end-of-season showdown in the history of the Red Bull X-Fighters in London last year, the premier freestyle motocross series in the world returns in 2010 with new riders, new locations and plenty of new tricks.
This year will once again see the very best of the international FMX scene battle it out for the title of Red Bull X-Fighters Champion.
The Red Bull X-Fighters World Tour is ready to kick off in Mexico-City on coming Friday, April 16th in Monumental Plaza de Toros. In total, 6 stops will present tough competition in FMX:
14/05/2010 Giza (EGY) Pyramides / Sphinx
26/06/2010 Moscow (RUS) Red Square / Kremlin
23/07/2010 Madrid (SPA) Plaza de Toros de las Ventas
14/08/2010 London (GBR) Battersea Power Station
01/10/2010 Rome (ITA) Stadio dei Marmi
Last year it was America’s Nate Adams who claimed the title in front of a sell-out crowd of 20,000 at London’s Battersea Power Station following a thrilling season full of twists and turns.
In 2010, Red Bull X-Fighters is no longer an invitational. Instead of holding a ranking event, qualifying will be done according to performance and the World Tour ranking.
Four spots will be battled out by six riders, who have been selected by the international Red Bull X-Fighters jury. "This method will guarantee a fair competition on the highest sportive level with only the very best riders competing at each single Tour stop," explained Sports Director Tes Sewell.
