A spectacular backdrop for some spectacular action: Red Bull X-Fighters travels to the pyramids of Egypt this week for the second stop on the 2010 World Tour.

Heavy rain put a damper on the season opener in Mexico City last month, so the FMX riders will be out to put on a show in Giza.

Norwegian rider Andre Villa leads the early standings after qualifying results determined the final positions for the first stop. FMX heavyweights Nate Adams and Robbie Maddison, who finished second and third respectively in Mexico, are just two of the riders hot on the title trail.

Swiss star Mat Rebeaud missed the first stop after a serious crash during training, and is again absent due to that injury. His place is taken by Czech 'Wunderkind' Petr Pilat. The 18-year-old completes the field of 12 riders, which also includes wildcard entrants Adam Jones and Nick DeWit.
