Kiwi’s Back! Freestyle Motocross Star Levi Sherwood Claims Stunning Victory at Red Bull X-Fighters Season Opener in Dubai
It’s been two long years for Levi Sherwood. With injuries, setbacks and other challenges now in the rear view mirror, Oakley’s Freestyle Motocross Star claimed his first Red Bull X-Fighters victory since 2010, stunning a packed crowd of more than 20,000 spectators on the sands of the world-renowned Jumeirah Beach in Dubai (United Arab Emirates). Throwing down a turntable, complex combos like a backflip Hart attack one-hander, stylish and fully extended holy grabs, recliners and Superman airs in an intense head-to-head final matchup with Rob Adelberg, he emerged victorious in grand fashion.
The Red Bull X-Fighters Champion isn’t done dominating his rivals just yet. Oakley FMX Star Dany Torres, who recently claimed the season X-Fighters series title, topped it off with a resounding victory at Freestyle.ch in Zurich, Switzerland recently – taking down a talent-packed field of the world’s best riders.
Si! Si! Si! Oakley’s Freestyle Motocross Star Dany Torres emerged from behind in the overall standings to claim the Red Bull X-Fighters World Tour Title on Saturday after a solid third-place finish at Cockatoo Island in Sydney, Australia. The hard-charging Spaniard was clipped by hometown Aussie rider Josh Sheehan in the semifinals in front of a raucous, sold out crowd of more than 11,000 screaming spectators. But his podium spot was enough to seal the deal, points-wise, for the 2011 Crown after charging into Sydney with a 40 point deficit behind Nate Adams.
