The BMX Street Finals went off last night at X Games 2019 in Minneapolis! As always, you could find the top BMX street riders in the world on the course ready to throw down.

Below you can find the medal runs for Garrett Reynolds, Matt Ray and Chad Kerley who all found them on the podium when the dust had settled! Needless to say, there was no shortage of amazing riding that went down during this one.
The Shadow Conspiracy sent Mark Burnett, Matt Ray, Jabe Jones and Bjarki Hardarson out to Oregon with the QBP crew to hit up a bunch of shops and cruise with the locals! Here’s a video giving us a good look at what the guys got into along the way! If you want to see more, make sure to check out Mark Burnett’s Field Notes: Oregon with QBP video.
“Let’s show some love to local bike shops, and get in some riding while we’re at it. The plan was simple but the outcome was distinct. QBP, one of Shadow’s distributors in the US, wanted to bring the Shadow team out to Oregon to support a few shop events and hang out with the local riders. Mark Burnett, Matt Ray, Jabe Jones, and Bjarki Hardarson were all pretty fresh to the Pacific Northwest, which made for a really fun vibe of discovery during the whole visit. Sprinkle in some of the best concrete parks in the country and we were bound to have a good time.
Thanks to The Lumberyard, Santiam Bicycles, Hutch’s Springfield for hosting events. Thanks to KC Badger, Kayla Lockhart, Shad Johnson, and Ryan Barrett for being tour guides. Thanks to all of the locals that met up and made the trip so fun.” – Ben Austin

Matt Ray is back on his Youtube game and uploaded this new one to check out. It’s a little vloggy, but it’s mostly riding from a session he caught with Matty Long on a Subrosa Street Rail. The session was pretty laid back, but both of these guys stacked some solid clips. Plus, it’s been way too long since we’ve seen Matty Long’s name pop up. Needless to say, this is worth a peek. You can pick up a Subrosa Street Rail over on the Subrosa website.
“Brought my two street rails over to Matty’s for a session one afternoon. Sessioned them for a while , got whole foods , rode some more , kicked it with his dogs. Overall it was a good day.
These rails are perfect for learning new tricks or even just staying dialed with tricks you’ve already got. Cant thank Subrosa enough for hooking me up with these.” – Matt Ray
