21st Century Daredevil

Back home in Australia, they reverently call him the King. "King of the Coast", because he won this legendary event in 2003, 2004 and 2005, or simply: “King of FMX”.

Way back in 2005, Maddo developed a taste for setting new world records by claiming two distance records in just one year: 221 feet (67 metres) on a 125cc bike and 246 feet (75 metres) on a 250cc Honda. However, with his focus on FMX and winning as many titles as possible, it wasn’t until New Year’s Eve 2007 that Robbie leapt into the pages of the Guinness Book Of World Records once again by jumping his Honda CR500 322 feet 7.5 inches (99 m) – more than the length of a regular football field – to shatter the previous record of 277 feet at the Rio Hotel in Las Vegas. His take-off speed was 96 mph (154 km/h), catapulting him up to 60 feet (19 m) above the ground.

As if that wasn’t enough, Maddison is also a legend of Red Bull X-Fighters. In 2008, he finished second in the overall standings after consistent performances throughout the season, while in 2009 he pushed his good friend and neighbor Nate Adams all the way before finally having to settle for second place at the season finale in London. The 2011 season went well for Maddison with a victory in Madrid before he crashed at X-Games and was unable to regain his good form in the last 2 events of the season due to his hand injury.

Ahead of the 2012 season, Maddison got an offer from the famous 007 - James Bond production to be the stunt-double for James Bond. Having such a big chance Robbie took the job, but was unable to ride any Red Bull X-Fighters event due to his contract with the production company.

Being a spectator in Dubai and Sydney showed how difficult it is for the Australian not to ride, so expect him back in 2013 in typical Maddo-Style....
