The warning for Tasmania had be raised, and now it's official, the chase is on!!! Six of the world's best riders will make their way to the Australian island very shortly for one of the biggest storms to hit in recent years.

Red Bull recently announced the news:

"An incredible Mission #2 lies ahead. Get ready... It's an official "Go" for Tasmania!

"These six advancing competitors will battle it out man vs. man vs. nature within the cooking seas around Marrawah in about 100 hours from now:

"Marcilio Browne (BRA), Victor Fernandez (ESP), Julien Taboulet (FRA), Thomas Traversa (FRA), Dany Bruch (GER) and – replacing the unfortunately injured Robby Swift – Leon Jamaer (GER).

"Looking forward to see these guys rip!"
