Following several years of extraordinary success all over the globe, Red Bull X-Fighters lands in Greece for the first time next month. On June 12, the Hellenic Capital of Athens will present an amazing spectacle when it hosts the biggest and most spectacular track of the 2015 World Tour inside the Dionyssos Marble Quarry.
Greek fans, as well as fans of FMX across the world, can expect to see a titanic battle of riders with an extraordinary freestyle motocross pedigree. Let's begin with Clinton Moore, the surprise winner of the first tour stop in Mexico. He will be looking to reaffirm his status as one of the best FMX riders in the world by repeating his skillful and energetic performance in Greece. However, he will need to bring his A-game because lining up alongside him will be seven former Red Bull X-Fighters winners, making this list one of the most competitive ever.
Levi Sherwood, the 2012 World Tour Champion, has the most victories in Red Bull X-Fighters history while Dany Torres (2011 Champion) has the most podium finishes under his belt. Both of these riders will be nipping at Moore's heels in an effort to narrow the points gap in the 2015 World Tour standings. Tom Pages, the 2013 Champion, missed the opportunity to show off his new tricks in Mexico and will be looking forward to the opportunity to reveal them to the crowd lining the Dionyssos Marble Quarry.
Finally, reigning Red Bull X-Fighters World Tour Champion Josh Sheehan will return after setting a new world record with his triple flip at Travis Pastrana's compound in USA, and 2013 Osaka winner Taka Higashino will also return to the field. Both Sheehan and Higashino missed the first round of the tour in Mexico but know what it takes to win and will be eager to put some points on the board in Greece.
Remi Bizouard, Adam Jones, Javier Villegas, Rob Adelberg, Maikel Melero and David Rinaldo are completing the line-up for Athens. They have proven that they are some of the elite competitors in the sport and have shown that they're willing to risk anything to finally leave their mark on the Red Bull X-Fighters World Tour.
