Sydney Location Image

Cockatoo Island on Sydney Harbour will host this year’s finale of the Red Bull X-Fighters World Tour. On 06 October 2012, the world’s undisputed number one freestyle motocross (FMX) competition will converge on Australian turf and air space for the climax of the World Tour again.

It’s the sixth and final stop for the series that will see the best athletes on the planet fighting for the World Tour Title. In 2011 Josh Sheehan won the event with a spectacular Double Backflip in each of his runs.

For one day only, Cockatoo Island’s gritty industrial spaces will be taken over by the gravity-defying dirt bike devils, scaling heights of 15-metres in search of that elusive no-handed backflip, with Sydney Harbour as the backdrop.
