Australia’s Clinton Moore Wins Red Bull X-Fighters Mexico

Posted:

At the season opener in Mexico City, Australia‰Ûªs Clinton Moore stunned the field to claim his first Red Bull X-Fighters World Tour win.

Clinton Moore was on the hunt for his first Red Bull X-Fighters World Tour podium, and in Mexico on Friday night he got that and more. A sold-out crowd of 38,000 gave the Australian the ovation of a lifetime as he stood on top of the podium ahead of three former World Tour champions, New Zealand‰Ûªs Levi Sherwood in second, Frenchman Thomas Pag̬s in third, and Dany Torres of Spain in fourth.

In six previous starts in the world‰Ûªs most prestigious freestyle motocross series, the inked Aussie had always shown potential, but he‰Ûªd never made it past the Quarter Finals.

This year, he put all his big tricks, like the Bundy body varial and a Flair off the quarter pipe, into the same run ‰ÛÒ and that made the difference. He beat Sherwood, who wrote history by landing the first Transfer Flip ever done in competition, by the narrowest of margins.

‰ÛÏI knew I finally made it when I saw the confetti coming down. I‰Ûªm in heaven.‰Û
