Just one day remains until Red Bull X-Fighters Texas, the world’s premier, most-progressive freestyle motocross series, returns to the world famous Historic Fort Worth Stockyards. Last year, Swiss superstar Mat Rebeaud captured the Texas event with an exhilarating final run on his way to the overall series championship, and he looks to fend off 11 of the world’s best riders to repeat his win.
The 12 riders will take on the challenges of a massive, Texas-sized course, sculpted from more than 850 truckloads of dirt over the past three weeks. The numerous ramps and dirt jumps will provide the riders with several ways to impress the judges and thrill the crowd.
In addition to Rebeaud, the competitor list includes previous Red Bull X-Fighters winners Robbie Maddison (Australia), Dany Torres (Spain) and Jeremy “Twitch” Stenberg (USA). Also competing are Eigo Sato (Japan), Thomas Pagès (France), Andre Villa (Norway), Nate Adams (USA), Adam Jones (USA), Cameron Sinclair (Australia) and Rob Adelberg (Australia). Jeff “Ox” Kargola (USA) has been named to replace Levi Sherwood, who was injured in training last week.
