With the first round of the Red Bull X-Fighters series just a few weeks away, we thought we'd take a look at the events on the calendar this year, talk to Rob Adelberg who's doing the full series, and get an insight into the Munich course built on water!
Taka Higshino took a nail-biting win over Tom Pages in the final at Red Bull X-Fighters Japan. With new tricks and an emotional crowd, it was one hell of a night.
The competition side of Red Bull X-Fighters Glen Helen may have been a flop, but some insane riding still went down during the earlier practice runs. Here's a bonus vid of just that! Man, it would have been cool to see them go head-to-head on this course.
With the Dubai round of the X-Fighters in the books and a hell of an afterparty and long flight to Brazil, we finally caught up with Rob Adelberg to get the scoop on how his final day went.
Dany Torres took a hard-fought win in Dubai from series champ Levi Sherwood and round one winner, Tom Pages.
Rob Adelberg checks in after day two of Red Bull X-Fighters Dubai and gives us the scoop on qualifying.
You may remember our regular catch ups from the first stop of Red Bull X-Fighters where we followed rookie Truman Carroll through his first crack at the world series. Well, this time we've got a direct line from seasoned vet and all round legend, Rob Adelberg. Rob's in incredible form at the moment and is a cat's whisker away from landing on the podium. He'll be sending us blogs, images and anything else we can get across the next few days, so stay tuned to the site for regular updates.
We brought you some photo blogs with Truman in the lead up to his first Red Bull X-Fighters in Mexico City. He's just touched down back in Australia and managed to spit out some words on how the whole event went for him. It's safe to say he's pretty excited about the weekend, and so he should be. He did himself and the country proud on his first attempt and qualified through to the final eight, where he unfortunately drew event winner Tom Pages. Anyway, we'll let Truman do the talking from here...
We caught up with Josh Sheehan as he rolled off the plane in Melbourne on his retrun from X-Fighters Mexico City. He filled us in on dealing with food poisoning, high altitude, Tom Pages' mind-blowing runs and paying tributre to the fallen Eigo Sato.
