Rome FMX: Red Bull X-Fighters Video

FMX Video

At the grand finale of the Red Bull X-Fighters World Tour 2010 in Rome’s Stadio Flaminio (ITA) it was Spanish rider Dany Torres who sailed to motorcross victory in front of a capacity 20,000 crowd, defeating Adam Jones (USA) in a thrilling final.

Dany Torres may only be 21, but he is already an old hand when it comes to busting out the most insane tricks on an FMX bike. In his Red Bull X-Fighters debut in Madrid in 2004, D.T. took an impressive seventh place.

In 2005, he moved up two spots to fifth place, and in 2006 – in Mexico City as well as in Madrid – he took fourth. In 2007, his time had come: the Spanish wunderkind won Red Bull X-Fighters in Mexico City with a dominating performance.
