Last Monday, during the Monday Night Football game between the Minnesota Vikings and the New York Giants, there was a BMX demo that went down during half-time to keep the crowd excited and to help hype up the X Games that will be going down at the new Minnesota Vikings stadium in Minneapolis. Here’s two videos giving us a look at what the crew who were invited to do the show got into during the day (Chad’s video below) and some footage from the show up top (Dustin’s video). Can’t imagine what it was like riding in front of so many people!
“67,000 fans fill the brand new US Bank Stadium during Monday Night Football for the Vikings’ second ever home game, completely sold out, and little do they know they would see a live preview for X-Games right during half time… Join ASA Entertainment with local pro Dustin Grice on the mic as he welcomes X-Games Gold Medalists Daniel Dhers, Ryan Decenzo, home town hero Levi Lavallee, and all the riders from The Factory Minneapolis’ 24-Hour BMX Facility including Nitro World Games Champion Colton Walker, Evan Moyle, AJ “Ironman” Haines, Tristan “TwisterX15” Sagastume, Dallas Light, as well as Division BMX’s riders & ramp crew Casey Ervin, Jared Wiedower, and Micah Kranz. This now sets the first ever action sports & BMX riding to ever go down in the new stadium… What will we see next?”
“Last minute call to fly up to the new Minnesota Vikings stadium to do demos and halftime show. Said YES before I planned anything out. Trouble could be I had to be back to work at my shop Mr. B’s by noon the next day. 3am up and direct flight made this happen. Bill Nitschke, Dane Beardsley, and my self did demos outside with the cheerleaders and drum line. My camera was not recording for the 1st and last show…so this is what I got…also sprinkle in some of my chadisradasadad snapchat and here is my 24 hours Monday night football. Thanks to ASA, Xgames, Rick, Bill, Dave Freimuth, and the whole crew for one wild time. Still wish it was the Packers but this being my first monday night footballI will take it. Met Steve Young, Gruden walked past us, Eli and the Giants…and more. Where my bike brings me. Thanks Micah Kranz.” – Chad DeGroot
