TORRES IS LATEST X-FIGHTERS WINNER

Spain’s Dany Torres has won the second round of this year's Red Bull X-Fighters freestyle MX comp in Dubai, beating out defending series title holder, our own Levi Sherwood, and first 2013 round winner Thomas Pages.

Held in front of the world’s tallest building – the spectacular 828-meter Burj Khalifa - the event attracted 13,000 spectators with Torres claiming his first X-Fighters win since Madrid in 2011.

Pages dominated qualifying but crash-landed on his last jump, a flip, and was punished hard by the judges.

With the win on Saturday Torres now leads the 2013 Red Bull X-Fighters points standings  with Pages second, Sherwood third and Aussie Rob Adelberg fourth.

The next stop is in Glen Helen (USA) on May 11.
