Another category in this league was the SX-International. It was the most satisfying category which saw all international riders competing against each other. Every time, ever race became exciting as every lap saw a new leader.

Below are the final results of all the teams. But this league really proved out to be more exciting and thrilling as it saw some great racing, stunts, great sportsman spirits, and determinations. We saw riders fall and have intense crashes. But they all used to get up, kick-start their motorcycles and start racing again. Their rise after their fall showed how determined and focused they were and how much addicted they had become to this game.
