Following a sellout crowd in 2014, the Union Buildings will once again play host to the planet’s finest freestyle motocross athletes on September 12.
They will descend on the capital city to take part in the fourth stop of the Red Bull X-Fighters Tour 2015 and tickets are now available. (If you want to be assured of your seat, book at Computicket, because tickets are bound to sell out fast.)
“Last year’s final in Pretoria was amazing. Such rich heritage and that incredible course in front of an epic backdrop,” commented Sportive Director of the Red Bull X-Fighters World Tour, Tes Sewell. “But to be honest, it was those amazingly passionate and energetic South African fans that truly put the cherry on top of a fantastic event. I know the whole crew is super excited to get back to Pretoria.”
After a spectacular showdown in the vast track carved out of the Dionyssos Marble Quarry on June 13 in Athens (Greece), it was Clinton Moore (Australia) who defeated the 2013 World Tour winner Thomas Pagès (France) with a mind-boggling array of tricks.
The traditional hotspot for the tour, Madrid, Spain, followed on July 10, with Pagès coming out on top over Levi Sherwood (New Zealand) in the final. The Pretoria stop now looms with the top three occupying the leader board separated by only 40 points.
Moore currently is leading the World Tour standings with 200 points and Pagès and Sherwood are right on his heels with 180 and 160 points, respectively. No matter who’s on top of standings by the time September rolls around you can be sure that Red Bull X-Fighters Pretoria will be filled with insane maneuvers, incredible action and will leave the proudly South African crowd begging for more.
* Tickets start from R295 at Computicket.
