Brian Deegan does RX

by Tim Whittington |

X Games winner and GRC runner up, Brian Deegan will make his European debut in Finland this weekend. The American action sports hero will race a Ford Fiesta Supercar in the fourth round of the nine-event championship, the Rallycross of Finland which takes place at Kouvola, 140 km east of Helsinki.

“I’m looking forward to going to battle in a different country and continuing to gain experience as a rallycross driver. Rallycross has really become the next form of motor sport for me to take on,” said Deegan.

The 38-year-old FMX pioneer has made a successful transition to rallycross in the last few years, winning an X Games gold medal in 2011. A founding member of the Metal Mulisha, “The General” Deegan has a huge army of fans across the world. Deegan has spoken openly about his desire to compete in European events and may add further outings to his 2013 schedule if this weekend’s Finnish run is judged successful. Deegan will be run in Finland by the official Ford team, OMSE which will also field Tanner Foust and Toomas Heikkinen in the event.
