Highlights of the Mexico Red Bull X-Fighters
42.000 spectators were on-site for the commencement to the season in Mexico, where ten of the world?s best freestyle motocross riders competed in a horse powder-loaded head-to-head battle.
Shooting up in the sky as high as 20 metres with their 250ccm bikes these bold motoreros displayed some incredible courage, technique, style and airtime.
Three riders finally made it to the super final: overwhelmingly progressive Australian Robbie Maddison impressed the crowd and judges performing one flip after the other riding at super high speed. A class of his own when it comes to riding technique and confidence, Nate Adams (USA) pulled some clean Catwalks, Cordova Backflips and Lazy Boys. However, neither Maddison nor Adams could stop 19-year-old Latino young gun Dany “DT” Torres (ESP). When Torres fiercely attacked his former idols the crowd jumped off their seats waving their bandanas and screaming like crazy. Super high Cliffhangers, Turndowns, Superflips and Heelclicker Backflips, a Double Nac Nac No Hander, Indian Flip as well as a breathtaking Turndown Whip earned him victory.
After the opening event in Mexico City last week, the newly created series continues at Slane Castle near Dublin on May 26.
