Swatch watches - Red Bull X-Fighters final to hit London

First published: 20-08-2009

The 2009 Red Bull X-Fighters final - believed by many to be the premier event in the freestyle motocross calendar - will be hitting London this weekend, with Swatch watches as one of its main sponsors.

Following appearances at Mexico City, Calgary, Texas and Madrid, 12 international riders will head to Battersea Power Station's forecourt to perform tricks to thousands placed between the famous building and the River Thames on Saturday August 22nd.

All kinds of extreme stunts will be demonstrated with the aid of the massive central ramps including cliffhangers and backflips, all under the branding of the energy drink company and Swatch watches.

Riders including Robbie Maddison - who jumped over a partially-raised Tower Bridge on Monday 13th July at 02:55 GMT - will be competing for the coveted prize, though the danger involved in the sport is obvious.

After all, Cam Sinclair's trademark double backflip ended in pain of all kinds in Madrid, when he crashed and received emergency surgery for a severely lacerated liver, fractures to his cheek and right shoulder and damage to his wind pipe and lungs.
