On the 14th of June Texas will host the third stage of the spectacular Red Bull X-Fighters. This is the first time the freestyle contest arrives in the United States so the historic Fort Worth Stockyards in Texas seemed to be the most appropriate location as the impressive track was especially created for the FMX show.
Riders list includes especially winners of previous editions so cowboys and rangers will see the performance of Mat Rebeaud (Switzerland), Ronnie Renner (USA) and Dany Torres (Spain). Also, Twitch Stendberg (USA), Matt Buyten (USA), Eigo Sato (Japan), Charles Pagés (France) and Robbie Maddison (Australia) will be getting the public excited.
A tough qualification session will sort four out of ten riders in order to have a total of twelve pure freestyle talents to turn that mountain of dirt upside down.
The Forth Worth stage is the third of five international stages of the Red Bull X-Fighters 2008 series.
After the “Monumental Plaza Del Toros” in the city of Mexico and the Sambodromo Rio de Janeiro, it will be the turn of Forth Worth, Texas, followed by Wuppertal, Germany (July 4th) and finishing in the “Plaza de Toros de las Ventas” in Madrid (July 17th -18th).
