Russian freestyle motocross rider Alexei Kolesnikov is getting ready to ride with some of the world's best FMX pros as Travis Pastrana's Nitro Circus Live European Tour kicks off on Nov. 4, with stops in Moscow and St. Petersburg.

He traveled to the northeastern part of Italy in October to train and prepare with ex-pro Alvaro Dal Farra in Belluno. Dal Farra -- also an X Games and X Fighters freestyle motocross judge -- worked with Kolesnikov on tricks in a foam pit at his home and at the local Daboot SuperPark.
