From Cowtown to Cowboys: Red Bull X-Fighters gears up for a Texas-sized competition



    
    Freestyle Motocross Athletes Set to Shake-Up the Wild West at the
    Forth Worth Stockyards on June 27
    

    TORONTO, June 25 /CNW/ - Hot off the heels of the first-ever Canadian
stop at historic Calgary Stampede Park, Red Bull X-Fighters
(www.redbullxfighters.com), saddles up for another freestyle motocross (FMX)
frenzy in the Wild West at the Fort Worth Stockyards in Texas on Saturday,
June 27, 2009. Last year more than 20,000 fans witnessed Swiss superstar Mat
Rebeaud perform an exhilarating final run on his way to the overall series.
This Saturday, FMX fans can brush up on their 'tricktionary' as Australian
Robbie Maddison, the winner of Red Bull X-Fighters in Calgary, pulls out all
the whips and flips to keep his claim on the title in Texas!
    Twelve of the world's best riders will take on the Texas-sized course,
hoping to impress the judges and thrill the crowd with breathtaking jumps and
spectacular stunts. Forth Worth is the third stop of the Red Bull X-Fighters
five-country world tour - a one-of-a-kind mix of extreme sport and an
unforgettable orchestration of tricks and flips - following its 2009 debut in
Mexico City and Calgary. Yee-haw!
    In addition to Rebeaud, the 12-rider line-up includes Robbie Maddison
(Australia), Dany Torres (Spain), Jeremy "Twitch" Stenberg (USA), Eigo Sato
(Japan), Thomas Pagès (France), Andre Villa (Norway), winner of the Mexico
City stop, 17-year-old Levi Sherwood (New Zealand), Nate Adams (USA), Adam
Jones (USA), Cameron Sinclair (Australia) and Robert Adelberg (Australia).
