Coco on the top of his game

Coco Zurita has been slaying the vert ramp lately and picking up some new sponsors along the way. Coco started off the season witha 6th place finish at Dew Tour in Chicago, headed to X Games to nab a 5th place spot and follow up with another 5 place finish at the Dew Tour Portland, Oregon. That podium keeps getting closer and closer. Coco also put together video on how-to Nac-Nac for Alli Sports which plays online and onsite at the Dew Tours. Somehow Coco managed to get his car sponsored as well through all this media attention and is getting supported by Vivid Racing, Continental Tires, and Spin Imaging who wrapped his Evo in flat black. That car used to be white!

Down time for Guettler


Ryan Guettler was probably in the best shape of his life, he was super focused and killing it pre-season, then at the first Dew Tour stop in Chicago a month ago, he went over the bars and drove his shoulder into the ground.
Ryan suffered immense pain and dislocation almost every run he took and actually competed in the X Games and at the H.B contest, although not riding anywhere near the level he knows best.
Finally after trying to ride the Dew tour stop 2 in Portland this past weekend, he decided to get X-rays and a M.R.I and he will be going under the knife this week to repair the damage.
If you heard about the double shoulder surgery rumor going around, this is also true! Ryan is also getting his right shoulder repaired in a month's time, after the left one has had some time to heal.

Ryan has been fortunate enough to have been riding full time without any major injuries since coming from Australia to the U.S.A in 2003. These shoulder surgeries will keep Ryan off the bike 2-3 months, and Ryan intends to practice his photo and video skills in the off time.

Vans BMX Street at X Games 16


BMX Street went off with a bang yesterday in LA - and by bang we mean bangers from all of the Vans riders who made it into BMX Street finals at X Games 16. Check out this highlight reel with Ty Morrow, Josh Harrington Dakota Roche and Sean Sexton all throwing down their hottest moves for BMX fans all over the world.


Dak and Sexton rep Vans in XG Street Finals

Dakota Roche and Sean Sexton made it out of prelims and shredded into the Super Final in BMX Street on Sunday. Sean was dropping massive truckdrivers down the double set, sliding crank arm grinds and even boosted a big up-ledge feeble to X-Up for a 4th place finish- barely outside of the podium. Dak was killing it too with massive 360s over the round rail, and up-rail to 180 turndown and a wild tea-cup slighshot to 360 flyout that sent the crowd into an uproar. Dak took home the 5th place finish and was pretty beat up from all of his burly gaps. Congrats to all of the Vans riders at X Games this weekend!
