Dlamini Dlamini owned the day when Red Bull Unlocked returned to where it all started at Moses Mabhida Stadium, on Sunday 18 December. The Durbanite was a stand-out from the get-out in this, the fourth edition of the event. The event – which in the past was all about 'unlocking a venue' this year featured something of a different format, with the focus being on which rider could 'unlock their creativity' to put together the best line.
