Australian freestyle motocross star Robbie Maddison took to the skies on Tuesday for a final training session ahead of the second stop of the Red Bull X-Fighters World Tour in Cairo (EGY) this Friday. The hot and dry desert wind posed a major challenge for both man and machine in the desert just outside Africas most populous city.
Friday will see the best 12 FMX riders on the planet battle it out head-to-head directly in front of the 73.5-metre-long and 20-metre-high Great Sphinx of Giza constructed between 2700 and 2600 BC. Maddison, who jumped over Londons (UK) iconic Tower Bridge in 2009 before sailing over the Corinth Canal in Greece in March 2010, is one of the favourites for the overall win on the Red Bull X-Fighters World Tour 2010 featuring stops in Mexico City (MEX), Cairo (EGY), Moscow (RUS), Madrid (ESP), London (UK) and Rome (ITA).
