Ronnie Renner Helps Get Novilleros into the Groove

Tom Robinson & Seb Westberg get tips from the FMX Legend before the training

Red Bull X-Fighters is back in Las Ventas and the big story this year is that we have two novilleros, or novice riders picked by popular demand, in the house.

For the first time in Red Bull X-Fighters history, two promising young FMX talents had the chance to make their dream come true and become one of the twelve top riders at the most prestigious FMX competition through an online video voting and be picked as one of only two "Novilleros" - as usually the novice bull fighters are called. The video of 23-year-old Sebastian Westberg from Finland received the most fan-votes, securing him the first Novillero spot on the rider list. The clip of Tom Robinson from Australia impressed the sports committee - including amongst others sports director Tes Sewell and former champions Dany Torres and Levi Sherwood, handing him the second Novillero wildcard. When the young guns arrived FMX Legend Ronnie Renner took the two on a tour through Las Ventas and the history of the event, before they went out for the first practise.
