Soooo wild walking away with this… Speechless as you can see in the video hahh
Last year I flew out from MN & roomed with Satterfield just to ride in this event, and this year I happened to only be 4 hours away while living in Riverside, CA so we cruised out to Vegas for the weekend. My close friend Jeff from back home came to visit that week as well, love having close friends at out of town events we had a blast like usual only this time with gambling & gambling on gambling more. This event is basically a pro dirt comp & music festival with bands like The Used Underoath Less Than Jake etc http://extremething.com/ with a $100 comp entry.
Practice was wild the day before the event, & I fell on my tailbone and literally rode the finals the next day with a black ass. It was also too windy to ride the entire set so a best trick comp was put in place on the last set instead. Basically 30-40 pros split into two 30 minute heats, which was rad cause it felt like a fun session at any other dirt set. I had a few bangers ready for the world & apparently it worked out 1st place $1,000 later on the podium next to Colton Satterfield in 2nd and James Foster in 3rd.. Everyone killed it.
Special thanks to everyone, all the riders threw down !! Had a blast, check out the video above that Dylan Phfol put together for Kurt Hohberger’s site BMX Union.
