Happening today, the Red Bull X-Fighters World Tour is back and ready to take flight in Mexico City at the Mexico City Plaza de Toros. Looking to repeat his 2013 championship performance, Thomas Pagès is focused on clinching the season opener. Like last year, his win in Mexico set the stage for his dominate performance in 2013. This year, however his competition become even more intense with a field of 11 other riders looking to dethrone the king.
Five stops around the globe will ultimately determine who takes home this year's championship. They are comprised of Mexico City, Osaka, Madrid, Munich and Pretoria. Even though the closest event takes place today in Mexico, the tour will not be making an appearance in the US. Perhaps in 2015?
Be sure to follow your favorite riders tonight on RedBull.tv at 9:30pm (EST) or, if you miss it, on FOX Sports 1 March 17th at 7:30pm (EST)
