Red Bull X-Fighters stepped it up in a major way at the first event ever in Greece. Alley-oop flairs, 360 Supermans, and Bike Flips?! Guess that’s what it takes nowadays to compete with the world’s best in FMX. The level of progression has blown out of the water, and Red Bull X-Fighters Athens was proof in the pudding. Take a look back at the event recap, and big ups to Clinton Moore for his second consecutive win.
Remember that X_fighters comes to Pretoria at the Union Buildings on the 12th September 2015. Tickets start from R295 and are available at Computicket. For more information, please visit: www.redbullxfighters.com
What a weekend in Pretoria! After waiting patiently for the XFighters to finally arrive in South Africa, the 50th event did not let us down. The course at the Union Buildings was gigantic and the backdrop made for some incredible images and memories. With Levi Sherwood and Josh Sheehan battling for the Tour crown, it was also always going to be a massive event. With Levi crashing in qualifying, Sheehan was left to win or lose the title and he pretty much dominated every heat right through to the final. He was the top qualifier, he won every heat with every award and in the end no one could even slow him down on his way to the podium. Danny Torres and Adam Jones (See picture) came in second and third.
This was a truly monumental event and I cannot wait for next year!
