4X ProTour 2023 Press Release:
The 4X Pro Tour has announced a five-round series for 2023. Visiting three countries and a variety of tracks, the 2023 ProTour will showcase the talents of the Worlds best 4X riders to determine who the fastest riders are:
Round 1: Winterberg, Germany – May 20th
Round 2: Dobřany, Czech Republic – June 3rd
Round 3: Val Di Sole, Italy – June 30th
Round 4: Jablonec, Czech Republic – July 15th
The series will kick off at the IXS Dirt Masters Festival in Winterberg, Germany. The festival has hosted the Pro Tour eight times previously. However, the track has evolved and now provides a real challenge for the riders.
Dobřany, Czech Republic, will take the riders back over to the east of Europe on June 3rd. Another flat out track that has proved itself as a great spectacle when hosting two rounds of the European 4X Series in 2018 and 2019, as well as 4X ProTour events in the last 2 years. If you want big jumps and high speed, this is the race for you.
On June 30th, we return to the incredible Val Di Sole in Italy. This track has it all and the racing always delivers. Under floodlights this perfect 4X track will light up the valley of the sun once more.
There is no doubt that JBC 4X Revelations, will continue to prove itself as one of the wildest events on not only the 4X calendar, but on the international MTB calendar. Jablonec nad Nisou, Czech Republic will host the legendary event and round 4 of the series on July 15th. Built by three-time World Champion, Tomas Slavik, both riders and bikes will be tested to their limit. It will be an exciting finale to the 2023 4X ProTour.
Series organiser, Scott Beaumont:
“2023 looks like being our best ever season of 4X before the gate even drops. We return to venues that have always supported the 4X ProTour, who provide perfect organisation and immaculate race tracks. We look forward to welcoming riders and fans back to our amazing sport once again with no politics, frustration or rights issues. Good times guaranteed. See you in the gate”.

4X (Four-Cross) racing is the only head to head Mountain Bike race format that continues to deliver the action and excitement that the general public can engage with. TV companies love the simple format and action that the sport delivers. Races consist of 4 riders, and see them racing on a track full of jumps, banked corners and natural terrain. The top 2 riders in each race move onto the next round. A process of elimination from 64 riders whittles them down to the final, where the winner is crowned.
