So I hope you guys are liking the new format of DIRT ACTION.

10 years after his father claimed victory, Manuel Lettenbichler has stood on the top step after a treacherous Red Bull Romaniacs. After a tight battle with Alfredo Gomez in the wet and slick conditions, Lettenbichler would stand victorious. “I’m over the moon right now, I really can’t believe it,” he said. “This race is really something special and to win here feels amazing. The event is so long and so hard and anything can happen, so I’m so pumped to take the win. It’s been an incredible five days and so gnarly, especially with all the rain we’ve had.
