Action sport brand XDubai has announced that it has teamed up with Bluewaters to announce one of its newest athletes, global stunt bike phenom Sarah Lezito. As part of her debut, the 26-year-old French athlete features in a recently released video, performing various stunts at the stunning new island destination from Meraas.
In the nearly 2-minute-long clip, released this month on Bluewaters’ YouTube channel, Lezito showcases her world-famous skills, performing technical stunts that include stand-up wheelies, dead-spins, drifts and circle combos with Dubai’s impressive skyline as her backdrop, and under the gaze of Ain Dubai, the world’s largest observation wheel.
Throughout the video, Lezito’s identity remains hidden as she expertly transverses the streets of the lifestyle destination, making her way through the island’s sophisticated residential, retail and hospitality zones to meet friends at Caesar’s Palace Bluewaters Dubai.
As part of the XDubai roster of athletes, Lezito joins a select group of men and women athletes representing a variety of action sports including skateboarding, parkour, obstacle course racing, BMX and motocross. With a resume that includes appearances in Hollywood blockbusters such as The Avengers, Inferno and The Girl in the Spiders Web, Sarah started honing her craft in her native France at the tender age of 13.
She is one of the only female athletes competing at the highest levels in what is a male-dominated sport. For XDubai, she is the first motorcycle stunt rider, and one of six women currently signed by the action sport brand.
For Mohammed Javad, General Manager of XDubai, an athlete like Lezito needed a unique destination, and debut to showcase her talent: “As an athlete at the top of her game, Sarah shows us what it means to defy your limits and we couldn’t think of a more fitting location than Bluewaters to officially announce that she is part of the XDubai family.”
Through its diverse offering for visitors and eye-catching design, Bluewaters shares a natural synergy with XDubai. The destination lends itself to active lifestyle and modern entertainment and serves as the perfect backdrop to the daring spirit of Sarah Lezito’s high-octane performance. The vibrant island destination by Meraas will strive to host similar stunts, because they resonate with its global audience.
The collaboration also follows successful alliance between XDubai and Meraas for the X3 Junior Triathlon, which was held during last year’s Dubai Fitness Challenge at La Mer.
“Since our inception, XDubai has consistently brought together the best of Dubai, and this collaboration with Meraas to both debut Sarah Lezito and showcase Bluewaters is no different. Working together with our partners we have and will continue to show the world what is possible,” added Mohammed Javad.
