Last year’s Red Bull X-Fighters success was a culmination of skill, training and preparations, but organizers announces us that we haven’t seen the best of them yet.
For 2008, they gathered the twelve best riders in the freestyle MZ world to perform in Mexico, Brazil, Spain, Germany and the United States. The start will be given at the Plaza de Toros Monumental in Mexico City in April and 42,000 spectators will assist to the incredible show.
Tickets are immediately sold when names like Dany Torres (Spanish), Robbie Maddison (Australian) and Mat Rebeaud (Swiss) are mentioned, but all countries are proud of their shining MX stars so let’s see exactly who these are.
