Motocross pioneer Robbie Maddison has another moniker to add to an ever-lengthening list of superlatives: the Best International FMX Rider for 2009.
The official title was bestowed upon the Australian Freestyle Motocross rider at the annual FMX awards.
Maddison has made history with a series of death-defying jumps, but the 28-year-old is more than just a stuntman. Last May, Maddison defeated legendary Japanese rider Eigo Sato to claim victory at the Red Bull X-Fighters in Canada.
