FORT WORTH, Texas (April 14, 2009) Red Bull X-Fighters, the world's premier, most-progressive freestyle motocross series will return to the Historic Fort Worth Stockyards in Texas on Saturday, June 27. Last year more than 20,000 fans, plus an estimated 20,000 more outside the venue, witnessed as 12 snarling motorcycles temporarily replaced stampeding Texas Longhorns in the first-ever Red Bull X-Fighters stop in America. Swiss superstar Mat Rebeaud captured the Texas event with an exhilarating final run on his way to the overall series championship, and he looks to fend off the challenges of his traditional rivals and a young upstart to repeat his success in 2009.
The world's best riders will take on the challenges of a massive, Texas-sized course, providing them with several ways to impress the judges and thrill the crowd in their runs. The winner will receive the trophy, garner the accolades and score 100 points towards the Red Bull X-Fighters World Tour series championship.
