DIG caught up with Nina Buitrago and Dani Lightningbolt to get some insight on just why the X Games needs a Women’s BMX class. There’s also a bunch of real solid riding footage in this one from a ton of the girls that were out in Austin last summer for the X Games.
“Some wise words from Nina Buitrago and Dani Lightningbolt as to why they feel a women’s class at Xgames would help encourage more female riders to get involved with BMX. Being a minority within a minority sport/activity like BMX can’t be easy at times, and although at DIG we’re not the biggest fans of the generic contest environment, there are definite benefits from this type of inclusion that could come from it. It’s great to hear these opinions coming from two riders who have always been fully immersed in BMX culture too.
