Freestyle motocross – level 2
Madrid held a freestyle motocross competition. Around 23,000 fans came to the event. Competitors who wanted to win had to show something special.
A man from New Zealand tried with a double backflip, but it wasn’t enough. The Spanish fans wanted something new. A French competitor performed the first bike flip in the competition. This trick made the Frenchman win.
Difficult words: competition (situation when you try to be better than other people), backflip (when you rotate in the air backwards), bike flip (rotating the motorcycle in the air).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
Do you have a motorcycle? :-)
