Red Bull X-Fighters Ready for Dubai Event

The Red Bull X Fighters World Tour is ready for action. The first round of the calendar will take place on April 15 in Dubai at JBR Beach. Adam Jones, Andre Villa, Robbie Maddison, Nate Adams, Danny Torres and company are “ready to race” as they prepare for the opening round.

It’s the first time when the X Fighter riders head to the United Arab Emirates and the Gulf region. Under the careful eye of HH. Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai and Chairman of the Dubai Sports Council, the first round of Red Bull X-Fighters World Tour will be held against the backdrop of the Jumeirah Beach Residence complex next weekend.

A track will be built next to the venue and the maximum capacity for spectators will be 15,000. A variety of ramps will be put in place in order to serve the riders as they jump sky high to perform their sick tricks.

The calendar features 6 fantastic locations across 4 continents and a total of 12 riders will compete for air dominance and glory. After the Dubai event, the World Tour will go to Brasilia, Rome, Madrid, and Warsaw before the grand finale in Sydney.

Tes Sewell, Red Bull X-Fighters Sports Manager, brought into our attention the fact that many countries are requesting to host this one of the kind tour.

Following the success of our recent du World Music Festival event, we are proud to present this exhilarating first round of the 2011 global tour of the Freestyle Motocross Championship, held in Dubai for the first time ever. This event continues our successful engagement with Red Bull – previously on F1 and Air Race campaigns, and it is as thrilling an association as our unprecedented mobile broadband speeds of up to 42.2 Mbps, the fastest in the country,” said Farid Faraidooni, Chief Commercial Officer.

Mat Rebeaud’s fans will be disappointed because the Swiss will be replaced by 21-year old American rider Lance Corey.
