Red Bull X-Fighters Goes Live with FUEL

LOS ANGELES, CA – The Red Bull X-Fighters World Tour 2013, a Red Bull Media House production, returns to FUEL TV for six exciting live contests from March through August. Featuring the world’s top freestyle motocross (FMX) riders, Red Bull X-Fighters enters its twelfth season with the strongest field to date and visits the most amazing locations ever across the globe.

The season is anchored by the youngest titleholder in history, New Zealand’s Levi Sherwood (22 years old), who is looking to defend his Red Bull X-Fighters World Tour championship title. But he’ll be challenged by several past champions including 2011 champion Dany Torres from Spain, who finished third last year. Two-time Red Bull X-Fighters Champion Nate Adams (2009/2010) is also back and wants to bring the title home to the USA.

The star athletes who make up the tour come from all over the world. Unstoppable Frenchman Thomas Pages turned the FMX world on its head with his breathtaking array of tricks that pushed the sport to the next level and landed him in second place overall last year. 2012’s fourth-place finisher Javier Villegas hails from Chile, and Todd Potter, who finished sixth overall last year, represents USA.

Created in 2001, Red Bull X-Fighters has grown to become the biggest and most respected freestyle motocross tour on the planet. This year’s tour spans four continents with new stops in Osaka, Japan and Pretoria, South Africa. It all starts in Mexico City on March 9, and then heads to Dubai on April 12. Next is Glen Helen in California on May 11. For the first time the tour travels to Asia, visiting Osaka, Japan in June, and then crosses to Madrid, Spain in July. The grand finale will take place in Pretoria, South Africa on September 7.

FUEL TV telecasts all the contests live from around the globe, and kicks off the season with a special Red Bull X-Fighters Preview Show on Monday, March. 4 (11:00 PM ET).
