Rob Adelberg is setting course to take on the challenge at the next Red Bull X-Fighters World Tour in Munich on July 19. Adelberg will once again battle with a stacked line up of the best freestyle motocross riders while they keep their hopes to stay afloat on history’s first waterborne track.

Covering the length of 450 meters, it’s also the first linear Red Bull X-Fighters layout, demanding outstanding rhythm, stamina and focus. Adelberg is ready dominate this round and ride the wave all the way to the championship as the World Tour moves to its final stop in Pretoria, South Africa this August.
