Heavy winds played havoc with the competitors as the Red Bull X-Fighters World Tour rolled into Glen Helen, California, yesterday, eventually forcing organizers to abandon the event.
The day had promised a spectacular showcase of action as some of the best FMX riders were ready to take on the biggest FMX course in the world. But the strong winds made it too dangerous for the riders to pull their tricks safely.
The final result, instead, was decided on qualifying positions from earlier in the day, handing the World Tour lead to Thomas Pages of France. Previous championship leader Dany Torres drops back to joint second place where he’s joined by Australia’s Rob Adelberg.
