To promote each round of the X-Fighters World Tour, Red Bull stages a dramatic photo opportunity/publicity stunt. Typically, that involves jumping FMX bikes in front of a scenic landscape. But, last week in Rome, they did it a little differently. Instead of the specially prepared bikes, they used a stock Moto Guzzi V50 police cruiser. And instead of some silly scene, they took it off jumps at the FMX track proper. Amazingly, the bike is said to have survived Blake Williams’ abuse unscathed.
