In case extreme motorcycle riding is on the list of your favorite ways to experience how cool and crazy can the two-wheeled world be, then the Red Bull X-Fighters is a name you already know. To put it bluntly, it is one of the most adrenaline-filled indoor MX-stunt competition.
Each year the Red Bull X-Fighters tours the world in select locations and pits the world’s best 12 riders against each other. Each round will have a winner and the guy who collects the most points after the whole tour is over is crowned as the new X-Fighters Champion.

The winner of a round gets 100 points, the runner-up receives 85, while the third-best rider gathers 65 points. Since the differences between the round prizes are not exactly huge, you can all imagine that the competition at the top level is a really tough one and each rider must have a lot of aces up his sleeve to impress the 5 Red Bull judges and win over the points.

After an initial qualifying round, the first 7 riders advance to the next stage, while the remaining 5 will have to do battle again. Out of these 5 fellows, only one will join the first 7 in the next phase of the Red Bull X-Fighters round, with the rest of the competition sorting out riders down to the last two which will battle in the final.

Mexico City will host the kick-off round in 2014, for the 8th time in the Plaza de Toros, on March 14,with tickets already available.
