The XDL Championship Series is the premier stunt riding championship in the world and attracts stunters from the U.S., Asia and Europe. Randy Grube, owner and founder of XDL, has been in talks with International Motorcycling Federation (FIM) and groups who are interested in hosting XDL events in their countries. He quoted “The FIM and us have been discussing XDL becoming its international stunt riding series. All I can say for certain today is that next year, the FIM will have a series, and that next year, we will have events in India. Whether we are FIM-sanctioned or not is still to be determined.”
And here comes the prominent comment:
“The Pulsar motorcycle brand is pushing for us to do this. The money is in place. The XDL is in place. In Pulsar’s advertising, it’s all stunts. So, we’re working with them right now to plan the events for next year.”
Now if this comes to India, we bet ourselves on the event to be a runaway success. A partnership with FIM would render recognition to the event and XDL would be putting up a world class stunting extravaganza and provide a much needed platform for our local stunters to showcase their talent on a global stage in company of renowned stunters from across the world.
We hope the day comes and we see reflections of the likes of Chris Pfeiffer and A. C. Farias in our very own riders.
