The Red Bull X-Fighters World Tour is returning to Dubai for the third year in a row, on 12 April 2013, for a breathtaking performance at Mohammed Bin Rashid Boulevard, Downtown Dubai.

Supported by du, under its live entertainment platform du Live!, and in association with Emaar and Ford, the Red Bull X-Fighters World Tour 2013 promises to leave audiences on the edge of their seats, with bigger tricks, a more stunning location and, as always, a lineup of the very best FMX stars in the world.

We are thrilled to once again present the jaw-dropping action that is the Red Bull X-Fighters, in such an iconic Dubai location. We are proud to be associated with Red Bull for the Red Bull X-Fighters and Red Bull Racing, and du Live! will continue to bring the best in live entertainment to the UAE, said Hala Badri, Executive Vice President, Brand and Communications, du.

2012 saw the crowning of a new champion in 21-year-old wonder kid Levi Sherwood and the record-setting young star is back this year to defend his title. However, if last years tour taught us anything its that there is a host of riders out there wholl be gunning for the Kiwis title.

It might be French hotshot Tom Pags, the winner of Mexicos opening stop earlier in March, who was narrowly pipped at the post in Sydney last year. It could be Spains Dany Torres, the 2011 champion wholl be determined to fight his way back to dominance. Or it could be a newcomer, a rookie who rocks the series just as Sherwood did by winning on his debut back in 2009.

One things for sure, with six rounds spread across five continents, this years champion will not only need big tricks but also incredible levels of stamina, consistency and gritty determination.
