The Comeback Kid

In 2002 the Red Bull X-Fighters jumped through Madrid's Las Ventas bullfighting arena for the very first time, with Spain’s Edgar Torronteras winning in front of a huge home crowd. His fans called him E.T. Now they call his successor D.T.
Dany Torres may only be 25, but he is already an old hand when it comes to busting out the most insane tricks on an FMX bike. In his Red Bull X-Fighters debut in Madrid in 2004, D.T. took an impressive seventh place. In 2005, he moved up two spots to fifth place, and in 2006 - in Mexico City as well as in Madrid – he took fourth. In 2007, his time had come: the Spanish wunderkind won Red Bull X-Fighters in Mexico City with a dominating performance.
“Dany’s trick list is up to here,” said former FMX superstar Travis Pastrana. “I didn’t think he would be able to link the course how he did! I’m really impressed!”


After a couple of years plagued by injury, Torres proved his perfect sense of timing as he returned to fitness and form for his home even in Madrid in 2009. In front of a delirious crowd, Dany gave the world’s best FMX riders a lesson in style and trick execution as he went huge to win his first event for two years and send the Madrid fans wild.
The comeback kid came back yet again in 2011 and was able to build upon the late-season success of 2010 in Rome into the 2011 season by winning the first stop in Dubai, before bad luck returned and he was forced miss the second round in Brasilia. Still in pain Torres showed up in the Rome and dominated the Qualifier, but was unable to match his 2010 Rome win in the event. A small mistake on a back flip combination brought him down hard in one of the most horrible crashes of the 2011 season. Luckily he was able to leave Stadio Olympico on his feet. At the next stop in Las Ventas, he had another strong Qualifier and then the frenzied home crowd lifted him onto the top of the podium in Madrid. Another well-deserved second place in Poznan made the young Spaniard an aspirant for the overall title.


Before the final event Torres realized that all he needed was a third place in Sydney to win the championship because two of his main rivals, Adams and Villa – were injured. Despite the intense pressure, Torres delivered. His dream of winning the championship finally came true. The 2012 season did not start off well for the champion, but Torres is a true master of comebacks.
He got his act together to deliver good results in the second half of the season. The young Spaniard roared back with podiums for second place in Madrid and Munich, helping him to secure an overall third place after the final in Sydney, where he was seventh.

Beside Red Bull X-Fighters, Torres rode many international contests and was almost always on the podium, showing his rivals with new tricks that you always can expect an victorious run. Let´s see what the 2013 Season has to offer for Torres...
