COVER PAGE FOR RED BULLETIN MARCH 2014 - MEXICO CITY / MEXICO
Red Bull X-Fighters as the biggest FMX sport event in the world gave me huge photographic experience since I covered this championship for many years in a row. Everything is great about this sport, the location, the riders, the tricks... but above all the greatest thing is a result of your effort published on the cover page and shared with the wider audience.
This amazing cover page image was taken last year in Mexico City during the first stop of the Red Bull X-Fighters 2013. The specific thing about the photo on this cover is that it was composed of two different images. The one that I took is an overview of Monumental Plaza de Toros the biggest bull arena in the world, and the other one of Tohomas Pages in the air was shot by my colleague and friend, with whom I cooperate often lately, Joerg Mitter. We are both very proud that we have one more cover page in our archives.
