Local hope Taka Higashino held his nerve to edge out France’s Tom Pages at the first-ever Red Bull X-Fighters stop in Japan on Friday.

The 28 year old, who moved to the United States in 2006 to compete, is now fifth in the overall standings, 160 points behind Tour leader Pages, with Australia’s Rob Adelberg and 2011 champion Dany Torres of Spain in second and third place respectively.
