It’s safe to say that one of India’s most iconic structures was the majestic backdrop to some jaw-dropping action, as the Red Bull X-Fighters put up a stellar display of freestyle motocross action that the Capital is unlikely to forget in a hurry.
What’s that you say? You weren’t there to catch the action? Here’s what you missed:
THE MOST MIND-BLOWING-ADRENALINE-PUMPING-HEART-STOPPING FMX ACTION YOU WOULD HAVE EVER SEEN IN THE FLESH.
That’s right! FMX stars Nick Franklin, Nick DeWit, Gilles Dejong and Martin Koren had the Delhi crowd eating out of their hands as they showcased their skills in a high-octane 45-minute display that no one would forget easily.
The crowds were treated to a little local flavour with a ‘Bhangra’ troupe opening the proceedings – this had the crowds on their feet and in a fun mood. What followed was an immediate acceleration into three death-defying 15-minute sets by the Red Bull X-Fighters.
Smoking wheels, revving engines, airborne machines and a fantastic setting were more than enough reason to have the crowds cheering wildly throughout the performance.
The Red Bull X Fighters Jams is considered a build up to the World Series, which is the biggest and most respected Freestyle Motocross event on the planet. The Red Bull X-Fighters travel across the world to almost every continent every year to further expand their fan base and understanding of the world’s most challenging FMX competition.
After this display at India Gate, most of the audience was left hoping the Red Bull X-Fighters World Series would quickly add an Indian leg to its calendar. We can see why!
Nick de Wit who has fought with the some of the world’s best FMX riders at the Red Bull X-Fighter World Series said, “We are really overwhelmed by the spectacular crowd turn out and appreciate their love for the thrilling sport. We want to come back and put up an even bigger show on Indian soil again, to create more awareness about Red Bull X-Fighters.”
Hear, hear, Nick! You know now, for sure, that India loves the Red Bull X-fighters Jams. We can’t wait to have you guys back!
