2014 Red Bull X-Fighters Round 4: Munich Germany



Aussie Line Up: Rob Aldeberg, Josh Sheehan

When the fourth round of the 2014 Red Bull X-Fighters fires into life on July the 19th it will mark the second time that the world‰Ûªs most prestigious freestyle motocross event series has come to Munich, but a track like this has never been seen in the Bavarian capital ‰ÛÒ or anywhere.

For the first time in the annals of FMX, the entire track will float on a body of water: the dazzling lake in famed Olympic Park.

Each rider will have to dive in and challenge the superkicker, two quarterpipes, four regular ramps, and two gap jumps on the ingenious structure that weighs as much as 12 Boeing 747s. Covering the length of 450 meters, it‰Ûªs also the first linear Red Bull X-Fighters layout, demanding outstanding rhythm, stamina and focus.

FULLNOSIE.COM.AU's Weekend Ahead
Our RM-Z 250 is ready to head back to the track this weekend
Well we were planning on having our first Motocross race aboard our 2014 Suzuki RM-Z 250 this weekend, but with persistent rain dropping on the Gillman Motocross track all week long, the event has been cancelled after the track was left looking more like a lake heading into the weekend.

Luckily or unluckily depending on how you look at it, Gillman was the only track in South Aus to cop the down pour and with the event cancelled nearly every other track in SA has opened their gates to hold practice days. Now we are left with some big decisions!

Hit up the next local track at Tea Tree Gully, head to arguably the states best track at Murray Bridge for some motos or head to the scenic Crystal Brooke track to get some track time on a circuit that will host the final round of the South Australian Motocross Championships! Yes South Aus is a good place to own a Motocross bike at the moment with plenty of riding options most weekends.

THAT's A WRAP

As always be sure to keep an eye on the Fullnoise.com.au Social Pages over the weekend for some images and updates regarding the weekends racing.

Then check the front page of the Fullnoise.com.au site on Monday for our MONDAY MOTOBOARD Presented by TM Racing Australia for a full list of results from all racing over the weekend.

Again for 2014 if there are any events at your local club that you would like to have added to the Dirty Weekend Ahead, email details to mail@fullnoise.com.au
