Here’s a bit of a throwback that the X Games crew cooked up filled with highlights from Scotty Cranmer over the years of his domination at the contests. This is pretty cool to look back on since it goes way back to 2003 (How has it been 17 years already?) where he accumulated 9 medals in 14 appearances. This video doesn’t even show many of the years, but this highlight reel is awesome.
This will be a walk down memory lane for some of you, and maybe a lot of this is footage you have never seen because you just started getting into BMX and you have been watching Scotty’s Youtube channel after his crash. Which means this is probably going to be really cool to see since it really shows just how good he has always been on a BMX bike.
Hit play and take it all in! Definitely a lot of memories just seeing the names in the standings and everything, and it’s interesting seeing how much the courses have changed over the years!
“Starting in 2003, New Jersey BMX prodigy Scotty Cranmer started competing in X Games BMX Park competitions. And through the years, he amassed 14 X Games competition appearances, including three bronze medals, three silver medals and three gold medals.
Scotty’s riding signaled a sea change in BMX Park riding at X Games. Before he took gold in 2006, only three other riders had ever won gold in BMX Park. Then came Scotty leading a new wave of riders that did serious battle for over a decade. It was always edge-of-your-seat competition when Scotty took to the course. From turndown frontflips to ninja walk drops over unique taco configurations on the course, Scotty did it all, with a smile on his face (after he was done competing of course…)
Here, we assembled all of Scotty’s gold medal runs from his competition years at X. Enjoy!” – X Games
