Red Bull X-Fighters returns to U.S. soil after a two-year break and will host the second stop of the World Tour. The Historic Fort Worth Stockyards in Texas have hosted the event twice in the past, but the 2012 stop will bring the most-progressive freestyle motocross series to the home of FMX with its stop in Southern California.

With its rich motocross history, Glen Helen is an ideal venue for the Southern California premiere of Red Bull X-Fighters. The event will feature a uniquely massive course, giving the world's best riders multiple opportunities to impress the judges and thrill the crowd in their runs.
