Rain check

Professional FMX riders know the rules -- most events are held outdoors and if Mother Nature decides to crash the party, you have to play the hand your dealt. It's all about standard practices and safety at these Red Bull X-Fighters contests, and this event -- in Mexico City on Friday, the first of six stops across the globe -- was stopped at the beginning. Sure, it was a bummer that fans didn't get to see a full contest, but in the end, we're glad to know that the riders made it home in one piece. To keep things fair, riders' qualifying positions ended up being their final rankings, and Andre Villa took the win, ahead of Nate Adams and Robbie "Maddo" Maddison. (Red Bull)
