Scotty Cranmer Wins X Games Gold, Casey Bronze


The whole world was watching when Vans BMX riders Scotty Cranmer, Gary Young, and Pat Casey faced off against the world's best BMX riders in the X Games Super Park Finals in downtown Los Angeles. Cranmer dropped some bombs early in his runs and let everyone know what was up with the Dirty Jersey. Gary was cruising high-speed lines and Pat Casey was linking some big air combos for the fans live on ABC this morning. In the end Cranmer took the win over Nyquist and Pat Casey earned a Bronze medal. The podium ceremony is tonight at 9pm Pacific time so if you can tune into Espn to check out Scotty and Pat on the podium you'll see one happy Cranmer. The big question is: Will he buy a Ferrari next?

Dak is back! X Games BMX Street is no joke these days, but Dak put down the hammer in prelims and straight up dropped some heat in finals. While the rest of the field was caught up in tech lines, Dak was bashing wall rides from flat and big 360 and 180s down the stairs. This is Dak's third bronze medal to go with his one from last year and the one from Asian X. Bruno and Sexton were going nuts as well in one of the gnarliest X Games events in history. So many tech combos, so much insane riding. The whole crew is rocking new LXVI gear this weekend so stay tuned for Cranmer and the crew in BMX Park on Saturday morning at 10am Pacific on ABC!

Baldock in Slo-Mo


This has been talked up for over a week now and for good reason when you rent a movie set and use a video camera worth $250,000!

No filler in this one. All bangers. And I'm not even sure how to describe the last move, switch whip 360 flip????

Kyle does look at the landing mid double flip and I wouldn't recommend anyone else trying that!

Kyle has X Games next week in LA. Get em kid!

Journeys King of Prussia Photos


This past weekend Nasty, Gary Young, Scotty Cranmer, Ali Whitton and Ryan Guettler were in PA for the Journeys BBQ.

The boys put on two shows to a very enthusiastic crowd. Scotty was all over the ramp, blasting airs close to 8ft on the mellow 5ft ramp. Scotty even kicked a flair whip and pulled it. His first since 2007! Tailwhips either way, straight double Barspin airs and all the lip tricks in the world. Scotty put on a show!

Gary Young still rode good considering he has been out a month with a shoulder injury. Love his tables! Gary is expecting his first child so his phone was close by at all times. X Games is coming up in two weeks, lets hope Gary can still ride it.

Ali had a bit of trouble with flair's and when he finally got one he rode off the side of the 40ft ramp. He was having a good time though! Ali does really good Indian air's!

Guettler came off a Colony trip straight into a long flight out to the east coast for the demo's and still managed to pull no foot can flairs and some cool lip tricks like Hurricanes and Lawnmowers. A fan had Ryan sign his bike, it was a Guettler signature Mirra-Co from 2006!

Nasty dog Cory Nastazio took care of the early morning news show and local newspaper interviews on behalf of the Vans team. The kid is too famous! He rode the demo's but smashed his ankle flipping the smallest hip in history in show 1, so he was chillin for the 2nd demo. Good to see Nasty ride some ramps though.

It was such a good weekend thanks Micah Krans for announcing, all the fans for attending and Journeys for having us.

There's still a few stops left, check the Journeys BBQ site to catch the next one, unfortunately the Vans BMX team only hit the King of Prussia stop so if you missed us, see you next year!
