Off Year

2008 Red Bull X-Fighters champion Mat Rebeaud is having a hard time picking up where he left off last year. Though he's riding better than ever, the stacked field of international riders keeps getting more competitive and the riders are stepping up their game at every single event. Switzerland's Rebeaud had his worst showing of the season in Madrid, finishing a disappointing sixth place, but you can bet that he'll be gunning for the top spot at the last round in London.
