FUEL TV, Fox Sports Media Group’s dynamic action sports network for males, announces the premiere of the new, motocross adventure series “Rip To The Tip” today, April 11 (11:00 PM ET/8:00 PM PT).
Featuring 37 motocross riders, “Rip To The Tip” takes viewers on a thrilling eight-day, 1,500 mile journey through some of the most unforgiving terrain on Earth, from the U.S. Border to the tip of Baja California.
“’Rip to the Tip’ will keep our audience on the edge of their seats as they watch these bikers get challenged physically and mentally, in a journey you won’t believe,” says Melissa Forman, senior VP of Programming, Development & Current, FUEL TV.
Each 30-minute episode showcases the crew as they struggle to ride every mile of the trip known as the “Full Pull” – a coveted status riders like to achieve – traversing the entire Baja Peninsula. The bikers travel over some of the most treacherous, isolated, desolate and beautiful landscapes.
