Dave re-commissions Red Bull X-Fighters AFP

LONDON - Red Bull X-Fighters 2010, the third series of an advertiser-funded programme from Red Bull, is to be broadcast on UKTV's male-focused Freeview channel Dave from 23 July.

The TV series follows the Red Bull X-Fighters, who do stunts while riding motocross bikes, as they compete in Mexico City and Giza (Egypt), Moscow, Madrid and London's Battersea Power Station.

The six-part series will end with the final contest in Rome where the Red Bull X-Fighters World Tour Champion will be crowned.

Christie Poulos, head of moving image at Red Bull, said: "The Red Bull X-Fighters World Tour is a high-energy spectacle in which the world's best freestyle motocross riders combine power, skill, showmanship and bravery to perform jaw-dropping tricks, reaching heights of up to 40 feet."

It is the third time the Red Bull X-Fighters series has been broadcast on Dave. The deal was put together by UKTV's head of commercial partnerships, Sally Quick, working with Red Bull directly.

Quick said: "We are delighted to be working with Red Bull again on this exciting project for Dave. Last year's series really raised the bar with the live finale at Battersea power station, so it's going to be really exciting to see what the Red Bull XFighters will make of the Colosseum."

The show features the world's best freestyle motocross riders performing the most hair-raising stunts possible in just two minutes and will be hosted by sports presenter Ed Leigh and retired professional mountain biker Rob Warner.
