RED BULL X-FIGHTERS AT THE WALK OF JUMEIRAH BEACH RESIDENCE
To kick of the 2012 season, the FMX Elite will first land, and for the 2nd consecutive year, in the United Arab Emirates' city of "Life" and Glitter, Dubai. There, the towers of Jumeirah Beach Residence and the impressive Burj Al Arab stand as if Eternal, rising high up in the sky.
On April 13, all structures around The Walk will be a backdrop. The spotlights are all on the riders, sailing from water to land to air.
After all, the FMX action starts down below - at the Walk of Jumeirah Beach Residence. And heroes like defending champion Dany Torres, Nate Adams, and André Villa are hoping to come back with big numbers on the results chart to start the season. After the 2011 premiere the riders ride again directly on the beach and you can be sure a few will be prepared way better for the sandy conditions then last year.
