You mess with the bull, you’ll get the horns! Twitch and Lusk brought the heat in the heat of Fort Worth, Texas this weekend for Red Bull X Fighters. The Mulisha infiltrated the Red Bull event and dominated!
Potter and Taka started out the night going head-to-head in the first bracket. Potter was having trouble putting together his tricks all weekend and blew it again for the big show. Taka threw down a sick run and easily advanced to the next bracket.
Robbie Maddison went up against Charles Pages in the first round. Wrapped up in tape and sore as hell after a big practice crash the day before, Maddo sacked up and threw some huge tricks, even a KOD flip off the jump he crashed on! Maddo beat out little Pages, only to face his brother, Thomas, in the next round.
Here’s how Round 2 went:
– Twitch had a sick run and advanced past etneis teammate Andre Villa.
– Maddo took out the other Pages brother and would face Twitch in the semi-final.
– Taka went up against Mulisha teammate Jeremy Lusk, but this time Lusk emerged victorious with some of the biggest extensions of the weekend.
– Mat Rebeaud easily stomped Mylo.
Round 3 Semi Final:
Twitch vs. Maddo – Maddo went first and had a strong run going. Unfortunately, he came up a little short on a jump with his foot off and dislocated his kneecap…ouch! With Maddo out it gave Twitch a chance to get in some practice for the finals and jump the 115 foot jump that no one had jumped in 3 days of practice. Twitch not only jumped it, but he flipped it second try!
Lusk vs. Rebeaud – Neither Lusk nor Rebeaud would have the luxury of some practice. Lusk came out swinging first with his big tricks. Rebeaud followed with some crazy lines and combos and hit the 115 footer. It was close, but Rebeaud would advance to the final vs. Twitch.
Finals – Twitch vs. Rebeaud
Twitch went first, hitting the quarter pipe huge right off the bat and went into his run. Twitch made a couple mistakes with a half extended super flip and cordova flip. Those were enough for the judges to give the win to Rebeaud, who had a flawless run, even a flip indy over 115 footer.
All-in-all it was a sick contest and the Mulisha was allover the place! Thanks to all the Texas fans that came out representing hard!
