Andre Villa (c) F. Hagena -

Norway's Andre Villa took the top spot in Thursday evening's Qualifying for the main event of the Red Bull X-Fighters World Tour 2010 at the Plaza de Toros de Las Ventas. The victory means that the 28-year-old FMX hero can put his feet up and relax during the First Round on Friday night thanks to a wildcard through to the Quarterfinals.

Japan’s Eigo Sato, sixth in the overall standings going into the Madrid event, was fortunate to walk away from a heavy crash, hitting the landing hill hard after not picking up enough speed going into the kicker. However, fractures to his lower right arm mean that Sato will not be able to compete in the main event.
The Rookie Session saw Jackson Strong (AUS) and Maikel Melero (ESP) lay down milestones in their young careers by claiming the last two starting places in the field for the classic showdown.
A crowd of over 25,000 will whip the legendary bullfighting arena in the Spanish capital into a frenzy on Friday night. The event will be broadcast live on Red Bull Web TV starting at 4:30 p.m. EST in the U.S.
