Mumbai: Top motocross riders including Robbie Maddison and Tom Pages will enthral Mumbaikars with their stunts and skills at the iconic Gateway of India here Saturday. Three veteran riders — Maddison, who hails from Australia, Pages and Russian Alexey Kolesnikov — along with three young riders will perform in the city as part of ‘Red Bull FMX-JAM Mumbai’ event, its organisers said Friday.
Maddison, 37, who would be performing stunts on KTM 450, said the show on Saturday was special for him. “Last year, I had taken a year away from the sport, we had a death in the family. So for me, it’s an honour to be here because I’m riding with my friends and I had an year away from the sport. “It was a tough year, so it is special to be back and its my first show (post the break),” Maddison said. 33-year-old Pages, known for excluded backflips, will be performing stunts on a Yamaha bike, while Kolesnikov will be on a KTM 50.
