The finals from Red Bull‘s Dreamline went down this past Saturday. The format was once again very loose with everyone who didn’t make it into finals voting for the top 3 riders. With a line up of Brian Foster, Chris Doyle, Mike “Hucker” Clark, Luke Parslow, Dennis Enarson, Cory Nastazio, Gary Young and TJ Ellis in the finals, good things were obviously going to happen.
After the lines were touched up and watered by the building crew, the guys started rolling in on the trails. Once everyone was good and warmed up, the guys in the finals were given the heads up that the clock was going to start and they had an hour to impress everyone with everything in their bag of tricks.
Needless to say, the final jam turned into a full on session with almost everyone riding; not just the guys in the finals. As the time progressed, things started getting real hot with guys throwing down things they have never done or haven’t done in years. Everyone was vibing so well that once the clock ran out, nobody said anything and just let the guys keep going. It was an amazing decision since that’s when two double backflips came out (Hucker and then Luke Parslow) over the big booter, Dennis was destroying the shark fin, Doyle was dropping 720’s mid set and everyone in general was pushing it harder than any of the riding seen the entire weekend.
It wasn’t until Brian Foster went down with a possible torn ACL and the light was fading that the riders decided it was time to shut it down and cast their votes. It was apparent to everyone who would be taking home the cash this weekend.
I’d like to send a huge shout out to Red Bull for organizing one of the most amazing and relaxed contests ever. This is definitely one event that will go down in the history books as how things should be done in BMX.
