I’m following the X-Fighters adventures around the globe for 7 years in a row now, and this year we had totally new and unique stop in Athens, Greece. Operating since the Golden Age of Pericles, the Dionyssos Marble Quarry have provided thousands of cubic meters of marble used to build the Acropolis monument as well as most of the Classical, Hellenistic and Roman sculptures. Photoshooting any event is always more challenging when there is nice background and in this case whole ambient was more than spectacular. Dust and heat couldn’t disrupt our perfect plans that we had for moto adventure in Athens.
Created back in 2001, the Red Bull X-Fighters concept has grown to become the biggest and most respected freestyle motocross tour on the planet. Red Bull X-Fighters is the biggest and most respected freestyle motocross tour on the planet, featuring the world’s best riders throwing down mad tricks in stunning locations across the globe.
The World Tour 2015 kicked off in Mexico City, then we got here at Athens and it will travel to Madrid, Pretoria and finally the United Arab Emirates for the first tour-final on the Arabian peninsula.
Red Bull X-Fighters landed in Greece for the first time this year. The Red Bull X-Fighters riders took us on a breathtaking journey connecting Now and Then. Over 10,000 people visited the Dionysos marble quarry on Saturday night, June 13, to watch the top FMX riders in the world perform at the amazing Red Bull X-Fighters World Tour.
Australian Clinton Moore established his place in the FMX pantheon with a stunning second consecutive victory in the Red Bull X-Fighters. After his surprise victory in the season’s first race in Mexico, Moore proved he is worthy of the world title, surprising the crowd with his amazing tricks.
His performance helped him surpass French rider Thomas Pages and Australian Rob Adelberg. Moore climbed to the podium’s top spot, even though Pages presented a new trick in the Athens race.
