Rob Adelberg placed second at X games in Brazil.

Benalla’s Rob Adelberg has had a fantastic start to 2013, winning a silver medal in freestyle motocross at the X Games in Fox de Iguacu, Brazil.

While Adelberg is thrilled with his placing, he has his sights firmly set on the top at the next X Games and is already looking towards the 2013 Red Bull X Fighters Championship.

This tour began in March in Mexico City, with the second round in Dubai, both of which Adelberg placed well in.

He is currently training in California awaiting the third stop on the X fighters calendar at Glen Helen, California on May 11.

Adelberg is currently fourth in the world tour standings, and is excited to get on the Glen Helen course.

This course is one of his favourites, boasting a 120ft jump and a 60ft step-up.

Adelberg was one of only two riders that pulled a back flip up this step-up last year.

The Red Bull tour will then move to Japan and Spain before finishing the year in South Africa.

When home in Australia, Adelberg has been riding with the Nitro Circus crew on their Oz Regional 2013 tour, and is looking very strong with smooth and consistent riding.
