Brian Deegan Celebrates His 2011 X-Games Success


American Brian Deegan has been confirmed as the latest entrant for the 2011 Race of Champions event in Dusselldorf, Germany. The motorcross and off-road great will join fellow action sports legend Travis Pastrana in a unique Team USA line up.

Deegan has made a name for himself in American on two and four wheels, being the only rider to compete at every X-Games, picking up a total thirteen medals, while also enjoy success in cars, winning an X-Games gold medal in Rallycross this year. 

Deegan's rebel attitude has made him a hugely popular competitor across the pond, especially as the talented racer has overcome many near-death experiences, including several broken bones, a lot kidney and a severe spleen injury. Alongside Pastrana, Team USA are sure to be exciting to watch over December 3rd and 4th.

Deegan said: “I've heard a lot about the Race Of Champions from Travis down the years so I'm really looking forward to joining him next month. It adds a bit of extra edge to be racing for Team USA in the ROC Nations Cup so we'll bring a bit of our cowboy attitude and see how we get on. We know we're up against a mighty field of motor sport specialists but we'll give everything to come away with a good result.”

ROC race organiser Fredrik Johnsson added: “We could hardly have picked a more exciting line-up for Team USA. We've already seen the energy Travis brings to the Race Of Champions so it's special to have two action sports greats together. Brian will no doubt prove to be just as big a hit with the crowds. And as for backstage and the parties afterwards, we might not know what's hit us…”
