Pretoria - Ahead of the Red Bull X-Fighters World Tour return to Pretoria this Saturday (September 12), South Africa's own Nick de Wit and Frenchman Rémi Bizouard show off spectacular freestyle motocross tricks complementing a picture-perfect sundown in the wilderness.
The largest land animal on Earth — the African elephant — faced riders from the planet's most prestigious freestyle motocross series, ahead of the hotly anticipated return of Red Bull X-Fighters to South Africa on Saturday.
After an impressive 2014 debut in Pretoria, the buzz for Saturday's showdown is off the charts. The track once again spreads across the tree-filled terrain of the historic Union Buildings to show off the riders' newest tricks.
South African FMX legend Nick de Wit gave Red Bull X-Fighters contender Rémi Bizouard of France a reminder of just how wild it can be to ride Africa's red dirt when he took the Frenchman for a session in the wide-open savanna.
On Saturday, Bizouard will be charging with the rest of the 12-man field, which includes seven previous Red Bull X-Fighters event winners and top title contenders like Australia's Clinton Moore and Josh Sheehan, as well as Tom Pagès and David Rinaldo from France.
