First off, apologies on the slow posting this weekend. It was a hectic weekend in Austin and the WIFI was pretty limited! It’s creeping along enough to get caught up finally. Needless to say, over the past few days a TON of videos have surfaced from dirt to park, street and Big Air… So instead of making separate posts or all of them, we’ve compiled everything into one so you can get a look at EVERYTHING in one place. Make the jump to take it all in!
There’s been a lot of people psyched on Chase Hawk winning park and a few who don’t agree with it, but standing on the deck watching Chase ride the park, I’ll say it was clear he had every line dialed and was riding fast and smooth. Style over hucking tricks is what it’s about! Hell yeah, Chase!
“There’s a lot of opinions floating around about judging, but this is a time of celebration because Chase Motherfucking Hawk has won an X Games gold by doing what he does best: make shit look good. Congrats.” – Ride BMX

“The return of dirt in the States did not disappoint. Downhill, fast, and gnarly, course made everyone work for it and lots of people took some heavy falls in the process. Kyle Baldock took the win with a monstrous last run that seemingly only Pat Casey could top, but a nasty fall clinched the gold for Kyle.” – Ride BMX
“Seven minutes of madness from the likes of Garrett Reynolds, Chad Kerley, Dennis Enarson, Dakota Roche, Ty Morrow, Simone Barraco, Broc Raiford, and more. ”

“Wind. I don’t like it. Especially when it ruins a big air event. Lots of talk about people coming up short on the jump today and that’s pretty much what happened. Lots of falls, fortunately everyone is okay, but Colton Satterfield, Morgan Wade, and James Foster put it together. Unfortunately, it was a bit of a shit show for me and I missed James’ pulled run, and I blew it and switched a setting on my new little camera and filmed Colton’s winning run in normal speed. So hey, here ya go.” – Ride BMX
