The Maikel Melero Column
written by Maikel Melero


Hello everyone,

After more than 2 weeks off the bike due to an injury in my wrist, I am finally back riding and last weekend I had the chance to ride a competition in Munich and I also had an FMX demo in Abadiano-Spain.

Last 28th April there was another stop of the world championship and I would prefer not to tell you much about it as I had another crash. Fortunately I was not injured but I was out of the competition and finished 8th. I knew I was not 100% but I was hoping to be able to fight for a podium position… things did not turn out as I was expecting… I have learnt a new lesson again and I hope I won’t make the same mistake again.

The day after returning from Germany I drove to Abadiano (in the Basque country) to ride a demo with Pedro Moreno. It was a demo organized by Fly Group and I was really surprised to see a lot of fans watching and cheering us. We had a warm welcome, everything was really cool and this made me forget about the bad experience in Munich.

Finally I also want to tell you that I have some really good news and I am super excited because I have been invited to ride at Red Bull X-Fighters in Glen Helen (USA) next 12 may. It has been a last minute invitation, I still can’t believe it but next week I am travelling to USA with Dany Torres ! I hope I will have some good news to tell you when I come back…

Thanks everyone for all your support and talk soon!
