FMX London Results
Here’s a video of highlights from the Red Bull X-Fighters World Tour 2010 in London. New Zealand’s Levi Sherwood recharged London’s iconic Battersea Power Station this past Saturday as he won the fifth stop in the British capital.
The 19-year-old Sherwood kept his cool in front of 30,000 fans at the Battersea Power Station in London. American Nate Adams and Spaniard Dany Torres filled the podium, while Tour leader Andrè Villa had to settle for a disappointing ninth place.
It was raining cats and dogs on the night of the Red Bull X-Fighters event in London, which quickly led to slippery run-ins and increasingly soft landings.
Nate Adam (American rider, second place) says: "We couldn’t go right to the limit in the evening – it was too dangerous.
As all riders were competing under the same conditions, it was decided that the results would stand. Despite the rain, Battersea Power Station was sold out right down to the very last seat for an evening of spectacular FMX action.
Dany Torres (Third Place) says: "The fans certainly fired up the old coal power station."
Crowd favorite Robbie Maddison, famous for his jump over London’s iconic Tower Bridge in 2009, could only finish in tenth place after falling hard during Qualifying.
Adams (305 points) and Levi Sherwood (290 points) are closing in on current leader and Mexican Champion Andrè Villa (310 points).
Levi "Rubber Kid" Sherwood says: "It’s insane. I’m going to give absolutely everything at the last event to try and knock Villa off top spot."
The final stop of the Red Bull X-Fighters World Tour 2010 will be on October 2nd and has been relocated to the Stadio Flaminio in Rome, which will be the perfect arena for a proper season finale.
