After hosting the season opener for 2 consecutive years, Dubai (UAE) will be the 2nd destination in 2013 for the 12 riders! And changing from the sandy beach and iconic Jumeirah Beach Residence towers, on April 12, it is the unique Burj Khalifa that will witness action, thrill and excitement of the Red Bull X-Fighters.
From its 828m height, or its 160 stories, the tallest building in the world is the heart of Dubai where the modern city and the - not so far -desert meet.
In 2012, it was Josh Sheehan who made the “Mission – Possible” by introducing the FMX World to this elite area called “DownTown Dubai” by performing a memorable teaser jump at the base of Burj Khalifa.
2011 Champion Dany Torres also had his share of thrill when he rode his bike on the helipad of the great Burj Al Arab, overlooking Burj Khalifa itself.
In 2013, it is all 12 Red Bull X-Fighters riders that will perform in front of the #incREDiBULL backdrop, supported by 18.000 cheering fans.
Tickets for the 2nd event of Red Bull X-Fighters World Tour in Dubai are available on 11th of March.
