For the last 16 years, the Plaza de Toros de Las Ventas has been the venue for the ultimate competition in FMX and plays host again in 2017. The riders, who both savor and rave about the hothouse atmosphere in Madrid, compete against each other in front of a panel of distinguished judges and the enthusiastic crowd of over 23,000. Red Bull X-Fighters always attracts freestyle motocross’ best riders with the 2017 edition attracting stars like Levi Sherwood, Josh Sheehan and Taka Higashino to compete for the biggest prize in FMX.
This Saturday, a 90-minute special on X-Fighters airs on NBC at 3 p.m. EST as part of the Red Bull Signature Series, a collection of the most innovative and progressive events in action sports.
