Sydney: Spaniard Torres takes FMX crown
Dany Torres (ESP) was crowned the overall champion of the 2011 Red Bull X-Fighters World Tour in Sydney (Australia), the world’s most prestigious FMX tour. Local hero Josh Sheehan won the event on his home soil on Cockatoo Island in front of a sell-out crowd of 11,000.
Sydney will go down in the 11-year-history of the Red Bull X-Fighters as the most spectacular event ever. The winner Josh Sheehan as well as his compatriot Cameron Sinclair aced a total of three double backflips on ordinary motocross bikes. “I was confident I could do it and just went out and did it,“ said Sheehan, who defeated New Zealand’s Levi Sherwood in the final. “It was what won it for me.“
