Red Bull X-Fighters Jams Thrills Kuwait

The first ever Red Bull X-Fighters Jams in Kuwait saw 14,000 people entertained with mind-blowing, jaw-dropping and gravity-defying stunts in front of Kuwait’s most famous landmark, Kuwait Towers.

Red Bull X-Fighters Jams, sponsored by Nissan and held under the cooperation of Quarter Mile Club included top international riders Martin Koren from the Czech Republic, Nick Franklin from New Zealand, Daniel Boudin from Sweden and Chris Brock from the United Kingdom.

Hours before Red Bull X-Fighters Jams began; Kuwait’s Arabian Gulf Road was slowly being invaded by thousands of adrenaline-seeking fans.

The show started at 7:30pm and the crowd got bigger and louder as they could hear the riders warming up their bikes and getting ready to hit the ramp. Famous Lebanese TV presenter Michel Azzi, better known as Micho introduced the event and energized the audience. The riders started to warm up the ramps, making a few long jumps to cheer the people, but they actually didn’t need more incentives to arouse.

The riders delighted the crowd performing some impressive tricks and combos such as Backflips, Supermans and Cliffhangers; showing off their powerful machines with leaps of up to 10 meters high.

“It was super exciting, the audience was just amazing. I could hear their loud cheering while performing. I’m happy that they enjoyed the show.” said Red Bull athlete Nick Franklin.

Sheikh Ali Fawaz Al Sabah, CEO of Quarter Mile Club of Kuwait attended the event and praised the show.

The show also included the participation of Chris Pfeiffer (Germany), one of the world’s best motorbike stunt riders. Pfeiffer a four-time World Stunt Riding Champion gave an amazing performance and showed the best of his tricks and took the breath of the audience away as they were experiencing such action live for the first time.

“I’m happy to be here in Kuwait, the hospitality was great, and people were friendly and excited as they filled the location hours before we started. The crowd was fantastic and interacted with my shows especially when I performed some of my signature tricks.

Red Bull X-Fighters Jams proved to be the biggest motorsport event hosted in Kuwait as it attracted a large number of audiences and the biggest names in freestyle motocross.
