Kiwi FMX legend-in-the-making and Red Bull Athlete Levi Sherwood has taken out the fifth stage of the Red Bull X-Fighters 2010 World Tour in front of the Battersea Power Station in London.


Having won the Moscow leg of the X-Fighters 2010 World Tour earlier in the year the 19 year-old Palmerston North bred sensation destroyed the competition with a near faultless finals run pulling out his signature trick the "ruler flip".


Sherwood's overall win at Battersea combined with his earlier overall in Moscow sees Sherwood jump to third in the X-Fighters standings behind Andre Villa and Nate Adams.


Italy marks the battle ground for the final stop of the Red Bull X-Fighters World Tour on October 1st, where X-Fighters riders will throw everything humanely possibly to claim the X-Fighters 2010 crown. Using the Caput Mundi as one of the most surreal backdrops of the tour so far, Levi Sherwood is in for a very good chance of making X-Fighters history.
