BREATHTAKING drone footage motocross freestyle champion, Tom Pages, pulling off gravity-defying acrobatics has been shot in Spain.
The rider performed a host of tricks in a woodland area in Girona, northern Spain.
Tom Pages is a former X-games gold medallist and manages to pull off 360-degree flips on his motorcycle.
Pages’ speed is matched by the camera drone which mirrors the rider’s path, skilfully piloted by drone professional, Tom ‘Tomz’ Panaiva.
‘Tomz’, spoke about the footage with Red Bull Motorsports: “I was under a lot of pressure, I mustn’t knock him over, hurt him, unbalance him.”
“He risks his life when he jumps. It’s impossible for me to fly in three dimensions and always be 1cm away from him at the right angle.”
“It’s very difficult to have limited shots during very complicated stunts.”
The rider, Tom Pages, added the experience was comparable to “taking people with me on the bike.”
