Doyle Wins Vans Kill The Line


The French know how to build some crazy dirt jumps and Chris Doyle knows how to ride them. Legendary Chris Doyle won the 2012 Vans Kill the Line with classically smooth riding and 2 perfectly dialed runs that showed signature Doyle style with 360 turndowns and crowd-pleasing inverts. Michael “Hucker” Clark was the only rider to flip the stepdown and took second place with burly moves, consistent runs and big tricks. Last year’s winner TJ Ellis climbed the podium again with a 3rd place finish thanks to runs that consisted of flip trick variations through the middle set of jumps. Simon Moratz from Germany took home the “UNIT Best Trick” and 1,000 Euro Prize money. Check out the video that Soul BMX Magazine put together from this rad event.
