Red Bull X-Fighters USA

The weather gods played havoc at Glen Helen, with stiff winds forcing the riders to make the call that no competition could go on after the qualifying heats. At least the spectators got to see the best in the FMX business charging the biggest FMX course in the world. That giant wall ride alone blows my mind. Starting to sink in that we get to witness our very own X-Fighters very soon!

Australia’s Rob Adelberg won the third stop of the 2013 Red Bull X-Fighters World Tour by virtue of his victory in qualifying after heavy, gusting winds caused the cancellation of the finals. France’s Tom Pages was second and moved ahead of Spain’s Dany Torres in the overall standings halfway through the season. Japan’s Taka Higashino finished third before his home race next month in Osaka, Japan.
