At the next-to-last stop of the 2014 Red Bull X-Fighters World Tour in Munich on July 19, the planet’s best freestyle motocross riders will battle to keep their championship hopes afloat on history’s first waterborne track.

After a game-changing contest in Madrid on June 27 – which saw Frenchman Thomas Pagès launch back into overall contention with the first-ever Bike Flip in freestyle motocross competition – no contender can settle for treading water at the Red Bull X-Fighters stop in Munich. With every rider pushing the limits, there’s still no clear favorite in the fight for the series podium; those who don’t go all out on history’s first floating FMX track will be destined to sink in the standings.
July 19 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. For the first time in the annals of FMX, the entire track will float on a body of water: the dazzling lake in famed Olympic Park.

Each rider will have to dive in and challenge the superkicker, two quarterpipes, four regular ramps, and two gap jumps on the ingenious structure that weighs as much as 12 Boeing 747s. Covering the length of 450 meters, it’s also the first linear Red Bull X-Fighters layout, demanding outstanding rhythm, stamina and focus.
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. But Pagès, who took the title from Sherwood in 2013, came roaring back from a slow start to this year with an inspired first-place performance at the season’s midway point in the Spanish capital. Executing a gravity-defying double backflip, Australia’s Josh Sheehan was right behind, leaving Sherwood in third place at Las Ventas bullring despite near-flawless runs.
Pagès won in Munich in 2012. Can he use the momentum from Madrid to incorporate his massive tricks into fluid runs once again? The contender who does may ride the wave all the way to the championship as the World Tour moves to its final stop in Pretoria, South Africa this August.

After sharing the live link for you to watch last Fridays Live show in Madrid, I thought I’d also share the video for those of you who couldn’t watch it live.  #TeamNitro watched it, and wow, those boys put on an epic show.  I’m not so sure I agree with the judges in every round but what can you do?  All in all it was a sick show, so here you are, watch it whenever you can and don’t forget we’ve got you covered for the next round in Munich on 19 July, we’ll send you the live link, if you’re registered on my blog of course, so if you aren’t, go to the bottom of the page and hit the ‘Follow’ button, or simply drop me a line here and I’ll send you our blogs of only the coolest of things!

Back to X-Fighters….You know the Red Bull X-Fighters World Tour wouldn’t be complete without a visit to the Plaza de Toros de Las Ventas in Madrid. This amazing bullring has been on the calendar for over a decade and it has witnessed some truly titanic head-to-head battles in its time.

From Robbie Maddison showing off the spectacular Volt (Body Varial) that earned him victory in 2010 to Tom Pagès throwing down an incredible sequence of never-seen, gravity defying moves last year, the competition in Madrid has intensified with each passing year.

Perhaps it’s the tight confines that put the always-fired-up crowd right at the heart of the frenzied action, or maybe it’s bullring’s tradition as a home of gladiatorial combat, but Madrid often sees some of the best action of the whole year.

Since 2002, the FMX elite has been flying through the air consistently at Las Ventas, one of the world’s most famous bullfighting arenas. In 2013, France’s Tom Pagès was crowned the Red Bull X-Fighters World Tour champion with a heart-stopping performance in Madrid. His victory completed the most exciting season in the thirteen-year history of the world’s premiere freestyle motocross competition with more winners and even more spectacular tricks than ever. Japan’s Taka Hagashino finished second and Chile’s Javier Villegas took the third place.
