Red Bull‘s Dreamline officially kicked off yesterday in Wabasha, Minnesota (of all the places in the world…). Since it’s pretty much right in my backyard I cruised on down to shoot some photos from the event. I can’t begin to describe how amazing the course is and how psyched everyone riding is on the course. This is definitely the best “contest” I’ve ever been to.
Yesterday was qualifying and it ran in the form of two one hour jams with eight of the best trails riders in the world in each jam with the other 8 picking their top 4 riders from the heat. Here are the results of who made it into the finals that will be going down later today.
“Red Bull Dreamline invited 16 of the world’s best BMX dirt riders to Anthony Napolitan’s private training facility in Wabasha, Minnesota. A first of its kind, Red Bull Dreamline features an unrestricted trails-style course that sends riders to skies and back down again.
Earlier today, the qualifers pitted all 16 of the riders against each other. But only eight of them made it to the finals. Here’s a list of the finalists, in no particular order:
Mike “Hucker” Clark
The riders who didn’t make the cut are Alejandro Caro, Brandon Dosch, Diogo Canina, Adam Aloise, Zak Earley, Mark Mulville, Patrick Guimez and Cam White.” – Red Bull
I started tearing into some 300 or so photos from yesterday that I will hopefully be able to get posted up at some point tomorrow. You guys will be more than psyched. Also, the footage that I’ve seen so far that Ryan Navazio captured is looking amazing. Edits and a Fuel TV special to follow in the next few weeks I presume.
I’m about to head back down to check out the finals.
