Check out the photos of this years track, in looks amazing. Last year the entire event was rained off, lets hope the sun stays out this time. Here’s the press release, you gotta love it:

“10,000 tonnes of dirt and 40 of the best BMX riders on the planet descending to a small town in Devon can mean only one thing... the Red Bull Empire of Dirt has landed in the UK once again! This year's comp promises to be a super powered affair! Only the most daring and creative riders will survive. The course is immense. The 'drop in' is fierce, the spine is completely 'sick' and the hip at the end doesn't get any bigger! Oh and did I mention anything about those wall rides?! Scary. In the words of Kye Forte, Red Bull Empire of Dirt creator and all round nice guy, 'The hip is so knarly. You have to read it, lay off the brakes and get it exactly right otherwise it could be nasty.”
