Australian X-Fighters round dropped as series expands!

Posted:

The Australian round of the RedBull X-Fighters Freestyle Motocross tour has been dropped for the 2013 scheduled as the series concentrates on expanding into Japan and South Africa and also returns to Mexico City.

New Zealand‰Ûªs Levi Sherwood will be looking to defend his Red Bull X-Fighters World Tour championship title in an expanded 2013 tour after prevailing against Thomas Pag̬s of France in the most riveting battle in the 12-year history of the world‰Ûªs most prestigious and challenging freestyle motocross competition.

The Red Bull X-Fighters World Tour will be going to the four corners of the planet next year with new stops in Osaka, Japan and Pretoria, South Africa. Japan has two top stars in the tour, Eigo Sato and Takayuki Higashino.

While a release on the RedBull X-Fighters official web page did not give a reason for the axing of the Australian round they did state the following regarding the new and returning venues for 2013.

"The soaring popularity of the sport in eastern Asia and Africa has prompted the expansion of the World Tour to Japan and South Africa while the traditional locations on Dubai‰Ûªs sandy beaches, in Madrid‰Ûªs Las Ventas bullfighting arena and on Glen Helen, California‰Ûªs cavernous track will be back on the calendar as well."

2013 RedBull X-Fighters Schedule:
March 8, Mexico City (MEX)
April 12, Dubai (UAE)
May 11, Glen Helen (USA)
June 1, Osaka (JPN)
July 19, Madrid (ESP)
August 31, Pretoria (RSA)
