X-Knights: Oakley FMX Star Dany Torres Flies Into 2nd in Costa Rica
Dany Torres came in as the clear favorite.
But French Rider Thomas Pagès edged Oakley’s Spanish Freestyle Motocross star for the title at X-Knights Costa Rica this past weekend.
A raucous crowd of 28,000 FMX fans packed the stadium in the island nation – witnessing Pagès’ new, ridiculous trick known as the VOLT.
Although Dany threw down an exceptional final round, the French rider created a great impression amongst the fans thanks to the super-tech trick, and it was the fans’ vote which determined the final ranking.
Third position was for Spanish rider Maikel Melero, who stood out on his own, going through the previous qualification rounds after eliminating great riders like Wiley Fulmer, Javier Villegas and Lance Coury.
All in all, an amazing night for Dany in Costa Rica!
