Photos from XDL

Round 4 of the XDL Sportbike Freestyle Championship has descended upon Albuquerque, NM with screaming engines bouncing off rev limiters, tire smoke, and the cheers of fans that came out to witness the show. Later today is the main event which will feature the first ever drifting competition. That's right, athletes on 1,000 cc bikes with extended swingarms will do battle sideways at over 100 mph at NAPA Speedway today!

For now here are a few photos from yesterday's qualifying session.

Lots more to come in the proceeding days.
