Dany Torres, a professional FMX rider, hails from a small village called Arahal in Sevilla-Spain. He started riding at 3 years old when his father bought him a bike for Christmas. In his early years, Dany spent most of his time competing in MX and SX championships. At 15 years old he tried FMX and, as he says, “it changed my life.”

Dany was invited to Red Bull X-fighters in Las Vegas three years after trying FMX. He was also invited to the 2007 X Games, which fulfilled a childhood dream. Soon after, he went on a competitive tear, which included three consecutive wins at the X-Knights in Costa Rica.

Today his goals are the same as when he first started: “To keep on riding and doing as many events as possible, but the most important thing is to have fun.”
