Red Bull X-Fighters Grant Slam in the Spanish Capital
No Red Bull X-Fighters World Tour would be complete without a visit to the Plaza de Toros de las Ventas in Madrid. This amazing bullring has been on the calendar for over decade and it has witnessed some truly titanic head-to-head battles in its time.
From Robbie Maddison showing off the spectacular Volt Body Varial that earned him victory in 2010 to Tom Pagès throwing down an incredible sequence of never seen gravity defying moves last year, the competition in Madrid has intensified with each passing year.
Perhaps it’s the tight confines that put the always fired-up crowd right at the heart of the frenzied action, or maybe it’s bullring’s tradition as a home of gladiatorial combat but Madrid often sees some of the best action of the whole year.
Since 2002, the FMX elite has been flying through the air consistently at Las Ventas, one of the most famous bullfighting arenas in the world. It was "Kiwi" Levi Sherwood last year who grabbed the bull by the horns: the Kiwi won ahead of the two spanish locals Dany Torres and Maikel Melero.
Tickets for the 4th event of Red Bull X-Fighters World Tour at Las Ventas in Madrid are available soon.
