The 2008 Red Bull Empire of Dirt is set to kick off on Friday 25th and Saturday 26th July on a farm near Newton Abbot, Devon. The crowd will witness some of the world’s best all-round BMX riders hit the most insane course ever built: the world’s first BMX dirt slopestyle!
The rider list, released last week, reads like a who’s-who of the BMX world, including Gary Young, Brian Foster, Chris Doyle, Corey Bohan and the UK’s very own Forte brothers – Kye and Leo.
Tickets for event are FREE, but strictly limited. Tickets are allocated for the Friday, Saturday or both days, and are PER CAR, so everyone is encouraged to fill their cars up (legally) with BMX fans.
Those folks who scored a ticket for last year’s weather-cancelled event are eligible for a priority ticket. The rest of us will have to apply on a first-come-first-served basis, so don’t miss out! Applications for tickets will close on June 23rd, or when tickets run out, whichever comes first.
