WHAT: In anticipation of Red Bull X-Fighters, the world’s premier freestyle motocross series, coming to Glen Helen Raceway, Venice Beach will be the site of a freestyle motocross demonstration. The demo will feature riders performing aerial motorcycle tricks and warming up for the main event at Glen Helen Raceway on May 11.
Created in 2001, the Red Bull X-Fighters concept has grown to become the biggest and most respected freestyle motocross tour on the planet, featuring the world's best riders throwing down tricks in stunning locations across the globe. Red Bull X-Fighters kicked off its six-city world tour in Mexico City on March 8, where 38,000 spectators packed into the Plaza de Toros, the world’s largest bullfighting arena. The series then continued to Dubai on April 12, under the shadow of the Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building. Following the return to Glen Helen on May 11, the riders will travel to Osaka, Japan (June 1), Madrid (July 19) and finish the season in Pretoria, South Africa (September 7).
