Dak Nabs Bronze in X Games Street


HB Local Dakota Roche is probably going nuts right now having won a Bronze Medal in X Games BMX Street this afternoon. After taking a really gnarly crash that would have crushed most people's ribs, Dak went on to ride harder and smash some big 540s and 360 railhops like nothing happened. Check the video on Monday for his crash, it's burly. Ty Morrow was in the mix as well, hopping big wallrides over the railhop and a monster tuck no-hander off the roof.
Harrington and Sexton put down some heavy moves in qualifying, but it was Dak and Ty who snuck into finals for 3rd and 4th place among the heaviest hitters in the game.

Gary and Scotty at Dew Tour

The Vans BMX team are in Ocean City, M.D for Dew Tour stop 1.

Here's Gary Young's first trick that helped get him in the finals. Gary started at the far side of the course, pedaled his heart out out and pulled this huge gap to curved wall ride. He kept the speed he gained from this and flowed the whole course spinning left and right. It was beautiful to watch.

Scotty Cranmer also was on fire, this triple tail whip was clean as ever. Scotty combined a great mix of big moves including a truck driver to x-up drop in from the giant step down, and Ice pick to turn-down on top of the 10ft wall ride.

The finals are on today from 3:30pm eastern. Cheer the boys on!

Luke Parslow's It Is What It Is Jam

Lukes Parslow's It Is What It Is Jam went down this weekend with all the biggest rider in Riverside in attendance. Luke plugged in the giant lights the the shredding on his newly designed trails started immediately. Luke was obviously killing it with flipwhips, 360 flips and front flips right out of the gate and guys like Larry Edgar, Dylan Stark, Joey Cordova, TJ Ellis, and Cory Nastazio were right behind him with massive 360s and huge moto whips. The Vans bus was serving up hot dogs and burgers with a side of M&M's to keep everyone stoked into the wee hours of the night. When the dust cleared, it was Orange County's Dylan Stark who took the $2,000 overall win with steezy 360 tables and Joey Cordova won best trick with a backflip cordova.
