Red Bull brought the FMX Jam back to India after almost eight years on February 2, 2019, with the previous edition held in 2012 in Delhi. Wizcraft International Entertainment Pvt. Ltd. executed this unforgettable event that is sure to remain etched in every Mumbaikar’s mind for a long time to come.
For the first time in the history of the city, the top motocross riders of the world were in Mumbai to showcase their electrifying talent to an enthusiastic crowd. Robbie Maddison, Alexey Kolesnikov, Tom Pagès along with Martin Koren, Radek Bilek and Julien Vanstippen, off-road biking legends, gave Mumbai one of its finest motorsport displays of all time at the Red Bull FMX Jam.
The event saw the riders pull off some breath-taking stunts including high jumps, sideways glides, Kiss of Deaths, Cliff hangers, Whips and more. The event saw a spectacular finish with four of its six riders doing back flips in a tandem run, while a particularly spellbinding moment was when all six riders flew off the ramp to perform their favourite stunts.
The performance was divided into three sessions with the danger and complexity of the stunts increasing with each session. There was a time when all six riders flew off the ramp, in succession, performing their favourite stunt before landing on another ramp. The riders certainly made the afternoon special with their performance and it was a chance of a lifetime for Robbie Maddison fans to see the legendary athlete in action.
The Red Bull FMX Jam was organised in collaboration with the Maharashtra Tourism Development Corporation (MTDC) and Government of Maharashtra.
Speaking on the occasion, Niyati Vora, Vice President - Western Region Brand Activation, Wizcraft said, “Red Bull FMX Jam was the 2nd event in a span of three months that we successfully executed at the Gateway of India. A unique venue like the Gateway poses its own logistical & security challenges, but our experiences in the past have helped us a lot. Red Bull FMX Jam will surely go down in Mumbai’s history as one of the most unique events the city has hosted and it gives all of us at Wizcraft immense pride to have been associated with it. I would also like to thank the Government of Maharashtra and MTDC for all their support without which this event wouldn’t have been possible to pull off.”
On Saturday, February 2, 2019, Mumbai witnessed a motorsport showcase unlike any it had ever seen before with the Red Bull FMX Jam executed by Wizcraft.
