FMX Motocross star Levi Sherwood recharged London’s iconic Battersea Power Station on Saturday as he won the electrifying motorcycling event at the fifth stop of the Red Bull X-Fighters World Tour 2010in the British capital.
The third-largest plant of its kind in Britain, Battersea Power Station played a key role in supplying several generations of Londoners with electricity from 1933 right through to 1989.
Indeed, the towering 110-metre towers of the red brick building are today still among the most iconic landmarks of the British capital city.
Since its closure as a power plant at the end of the 1980s, Battersea Power Station has played host to exhibitions, events, concerts … and now the FMX Red Bull X-Fighters!
Despite the wet conditions, Battersea Power Station was sold out right down to the very last seat for an evening of spectacular FMX action.
Nate Adams (USA) and Dany Torres (ESP) took the remaining spots on the podium, while Tour leader Andrè Villa had to settle for a disappointing ninth place.
In the overall standings Nate Adams (305 points) and Levi Sherwood (290 points) are closing in on current leader and Mexico-Champion Andrè Villa (310 points).
