Where some see fear, I find fun

Hi, my name is Daniel Torres. My discipline is motocross freestyle. My friends call me Dany. I was born on 10 March 1987 in Arahal, Spain. My special talent is BMX and football. My philosophy of life is above all enjoy your life. My favourite food is home cooked Spanish food. My favourite music is dependent on my mood.


Dany Torres started riding when he was three, after his father bought him his first bike for Christmas. Since then, the young Spaniard has barely let go of the throttle. Having spent his early years learning how to ride, he soon began racing in the MX and SX championships with considerable success. However, Dany was about to have an epiphany.

When he was 15 he had a go at FMX stunt riding and, by his own admission, it “changed my life.” No longer was Dany earth-bound and in a pack; from now on it was outrageous stunts, cheering crowds and the ability to seemingly bend physics that defined his career; he has not looked back since.

Not long after that pivotal point, Dany was invited to the Red Bull X-Fighters in Las Ventas, an experience that confirmed what he already knew: FMX was his calling. In 2007 he was invited to the much-coveted X Games and has since returned many times, getting better each year and winning his first medal in 2011. That same year he also took the Red Bull X-Fighters world title. As his career has exploded, Dany has managed to keep his feet firmly on the ground – so to speak. “Today, my priorities and goals are the same I had when I started, keep on riding and doing as many events as possible but the most important thing is to have fun!”
