Although born in Carinbah, Robbie grew up in Kiama Downs, and from an early age became interested in riding. When he was old enough, Robbie immediately entered national motocross and supercross events, while still attending Kiama High School, where he would take an electrical apprenticeship. After high school ended, he continued with riding and was focused on improving his skills and tricks. His first win came at Bachus Marsh, Victoria, winning both amateur and pro motocross events.
In 2004 he participated in X Games, and after a performance of 13 flips, Robbie won the golden medal.
The next year marked the beginning of his re-writing world records and most daring stunts. At the Crusty Demons, he broke the Guinness world record with the superman seat grab of 75m. In 2007, at Caesars Palace he set the motorcycle jumping record with 98.34m travelled on a motorbike; the event was live on ESPN. The following year he was even more successful, breaking his own record twice. He performed three jumps at the Crusty Demons Night of World Records, held in Melbourne, Australia; in his first jump he recorded only 316 feet, or 96,32m, and the second try was rather more successful, setting the record of 342 feet and 7 inches, or 104.42m. However, he was dissatisfied with the jump and repeated the venture, this time recording 350.98 feet, or 106.98m. His next accomplishment was the 96 feet, or 29m jump up onto the Arc de Triomphe in front of Paris Las Vegas in 2009. That same year, Robbie also participated in the red Bull X-Fighters competition, and won the event by defeating some of the most successful freestyle riders, including Nate Adams, Mat Rebeaud and Eigo Sato.
His net worth was rising all the time.
His 2009 was even more successful when he jumped Tower Bridge in London with a backflip. During this stunt, the drawbridge was open by 25 feet, which tells even more how special and difficult this achievement was.
2010 brought new thrills to Robbie; he did a moto-x jump over the Corinth Canal in Greece, and jumped over the start gantry at the Formula One Grand Prix in Melbourne, Australia, among other ventures. In 2011, he tried to jump over San Diego Bay, but was several feet short, due to bad conditions, which included dark, fog and reduced traction.
In 2012 he appeared on television, doing the motorbike stunt for the film “Skyfall”, as a Daniel Craig double. He received an SAG award, and also Taurus world stunt award.
Most recently he rode a modified dirt motorbike on a wave near Teahupoo in Tahiti; he was apparently preparing around two years for the performance. Thankfully, all went well, and now, Robbie is looking for more stunts.
Regarding his personal life, Robbie is married to his high school sweetheart Amy Sanders-Maddison since 2010; the couple has one child together.
Robbie earned the nickname “Maddo”, because of his last name and his stunts; his friends describe him as “a nutter”.
