1. Red Bull Global Rally Cross
- Live on NBC: Saturday, 2 p.m. ET/11 a.m. PT
Fresh off an eventful fourth stop in New York, Red Bull Global Rallycross makes a quick turnaround as the racing series heads to Charlotte, North Carolina.
There's one major difference in Charlotte from all the other stops in the series: the race will be held on entirely dirt. Last year, the same track proved to be the most difficult in the series, and with the rains this week, the dirt will be wet and messy.
Nelson Piquet Jr. took the lead in the overall points race for the championship last week in New York, but will he still be number one when the checkered flag flies in Charlotte?
2. Red Bull Hare Scramble
- Watch on NBC: Saturday, 3 p.m. ET/11 a.m. PT
Feared by many and conquered by few, there’s only one motorcycle race in the world where 500 enduro riders attempt to traverse frightening hill climbs, vertical descents, gigantic boulders and the punishing forestry of an Austrian ore mine challenge the competitors to even finish this race.
From the Iron Mountains of Eisenerz, Austria, the toughest off-road motorcycle race in the world makes riders complete multiple laps, and in the end, only ten-percent make it across the finish line.
3. Red Bull Cliff Diving
- Watch on FOX Sports 1: Sunday, 2:30 p.m. ET/11:30 a.m. PT
Following two stops in Cuba and the USA, both won by high divers from the United Kingdom, cliff diving’s elite take on the rugged coast of Ireland’s Inis Mór for the next stop of the Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series.
In this first European stop of the 2014 Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series, the near-perfectly rectangular blowhole called ‘Serpent’s Lair’ will serve as the landing site for the 14 divers leaping from a 91-foot platform at speeds of more than 52 mph.
Thirty-year-old Russian Artem Silchenko is the defending 2013 champion, but is currently sitting in a tie for 4th place with the USA’s Steven LoBue, behind the UK tandem of Gary Hunt and Blake Aldridge, and Mexico’s Jonathan Paredes.
4. Red Bull X-Fighters
- Watch on FOX Sports 1: Monday, at 7 p.m. ET/4 p.m. PT
The first-ever floating freestyle motocross track will be unveiled at Munich's world famous Olympic Park. This will mark the second time that the world’s most prestigious freestyle motocross event series has come to Munich, but a track like this has never been seen in the Bavarian capital – or anywhere.
At the last stop in Madrid, Frenchman Thomas Pagès launched back into overall contention with the first-ever Bike Flip in freestyle motocross competition. With every rider pushing the limits, there’s still no clear favorite in the fight for the series podium. Until Pagès delivered his revolutionary run in Madrid, this season belonged to New Zealand’s Levi Sherwood, whose stellar performances in Mexico City and Osaka proved he was back to the form that made him the 2012 world champion.
