An audience of 7,500 attended the London venue to watch Europe’s leading riders in the first UK motocross arena tour.
Promotor E22 Sports is organising the tour, which is being covered on British Eurosport and in a series on Channel 4.
The night’s big winner was Buildbase Honda rider Adam Chatfield, who was handed a cheque for £2,500 after winning the 14-lap main event.
In the freestyle motocross competition, Spanish star Edgar Torronteras survived an early crash to give a polished performance. "Our sport is dangerous," he said. "It’s beautiful too. But dangerous."
The Arenacross tour has three more dates, visiting the Odyssey Arena in Belfast, the LG Arena in Birmingham and Liverpool’s Echo Arena for a finale event on 10 February.
