Red Bull X-Fighters

If you like your motor sport thrills and spills to be bumpy, spectacular, bruise-inducing and adrenaline-pumped, you’ve come to the right place.

For the third successive year Dave is bringing you the very best in FMX (freestyle motocross), and that means it’s time for the Red Bull X-Fighters to roar into action.

Throughout the Red Bull season, FMX will be represented to the max, thanks to 12 of the world’s best riders combining skill, power, showmanship and bravery. Each event (there are six events in the season) asks them to produce as many hair-raising stunts in a two-minute time period in some of the world’s most blockbusting locations.

With events in Russia, Spain and finally Italy throughout the season, there’s also the little matter of the UK leg of the tour. Dave will be showing this event as-live from the Battersea Power Station in August, and if last year’s event is anything to go by it’ll be a scorcher.

With all your favourite riders (including current champ Nate Adams) present and correct and ready to produce some of the most jaw-dropping, and plain rudest things on two wheels the world has ever seen, this year’s Red Bull X-Fighters is a must-watch of epic proportion.

With Moscow falling foul to rain, the first show on the X-Fighters circuit comes from Egypt where 10,000 fans gathered in front of the Great Sphinx of Giza. The best FMX athletes in the world faced desert winds, sand and temperatures of 40 degrees Celsius which pushed man and machine to the limit.

Don’t miss it – Wednesday 28th July at 8pm on Dave!
