On the biggest FMX course ever built in Italy - with 11 kickers and eight dirt landings - the athletes pushed themselves to their limits, jumping distances of up to 100 feet and as high as 45 feet. Co-favorite Dany Torres, who won in Rome last year, sent a shiver through the crowd when he crashed at the end of a botched landing in the second round. His bike veered off the course and into a barrier, his boot shattering the tempered glass wall. Torres came to Rome with five broken bones that weren't quite healed, but nevertheless won the Qualifying round. Judging by the way his right ankle feels right now, he will leave Rome with six broken bones. The Spaniard was confident he would be ready to battle for the victory at the next stop in front of his home crowd in Madrid.
