Madrid's iconic Plaza de Toros de Las Ventas has been the spiritual home of Red Bull X-Fighters and this year's anniversary event delivered the next big leap of FMX riding, courtesy of France's Tom Pagès.

After pushing FMX to never before seen levels of technical excellence and innovation in the previous three Las Ventas events, Pagès took FMX to the next level inside Las Ventas in 2016, as he debuted a radical new Front Flair to the capactiy crowd.

The history-making trick not only secured Pagès a record-breaking fourth straight Red Bull X-Fighters win in Madrid over 2015's defending champion Clinton Moore and Josh Sheehan, but also chaged the face of FMX for ever – front flip-based tricks are now the holy grail for FMX's best in this brave new world.
