While the international elite pushes the boundaries of modern freestyle motocross in some of the most spectacular locations on the planet at the Red Bull X-Fighters World Tour, local riders are hard at work bringing FMX to brand new countries with a series of Red Bull X-Fighters Jams. These events already have cult status in the cities they have visited, with top riders from the region joining some of the finest shooting stars from the international scene to put on an insane show in front of tens of thousands of people.
The next city to be enthralled by an X-Fighter Jam is Colombo, Sri Lanka. The largest city and former capital of Sri Lanka, it is located on the west coast of the island and adjacent to Sri Jayawardenapura Kotte, the current capital. Colombo is a busy and vibrant city with a mixture of modern life and colonial buildings and ruins, it has a population of around 647,000.
