It looks like Morgan Wade will have a little more energy when he’s dropping in on the Mega Ramp this weekend at the X-Games. Morgan has been added to the Gas Monkey Energy team. Gas Monkey Energy? Yeah, the same Gas Monkey as Gas Monkey garage, restaurant, etc. that Richard Rawlings started down in Dallas. Pretty rad to see how much support Morgan gets from Texas based companies. All we know is that it’s some well deserved support since Morgan kicks a ton of ass.
For the past few years, the Bikes Over Baghdad crew have been making trips over to the Middle East to spend some time hanging out with the troops, doing BMX demos and just getting a look at what it’s like over there. With a heavy crew of guys like Chad DeGroot, Drew Bezanson, Rob Darden, Anthony Napolitan, Mykel Larrin, Nate Wessel, Keith Mulligan, Morgan Wade and a few others, things are bound to get pretty wild. Chad dropped a full report from his trip over on the DECO BMX website, with 4 videos (like the one above) and a bunch of words from the day to day journal he kept. This appears to have been one hell of a trip… Check it!

Did you see all the wild riding that went down at BMX Big Air during the X-Games last weekend? Well, here’s your chance to check out highlights from Colton Satterfield, Morgan Wade, Mykel Larrin and more!
“X Games 2015 Big Air Finals was a bit heavy on the crashes, but Colton Satterfield sure came through when he nailed a corked-out 720 no-hander over the gap followed up with a double flair on the quarter.” – Ride BMX
When we first heard about “Big Air Doubles” a while back, we instantly imagined two people dropping in on the Mega Ramp at the same time, trying to pull out some wild tricks without crashing into each other and dying. It turns out our idea of just what this new addition to the X-Games contest line up was completely wrong. In fact, they paired up one BMX rider with one Skateboarder and they each go separately, then their score is calculated. Morgan Wade and Bob Burnquist teamed up and ended up taking home the gold. Take a look at a few of the highlights from the contest.
Want to see how Colton Satterfield won the gold medal at X-Games 2015 BMX Big Air? Hit that play button because you’re about to see a massive double flair that he pulled on the very last run of the entire contest to take the win! Morgan Wade took home second place and Mykel Larrin with the 3rd place spot! You can check out full highlights from the contest in the video below!
I can’t imagine what it would feel like falling about two or three stories out of the sky, but based off this video we can assume it hurts like hell! Hoffman Bikes released this helmet cam clip of Morgan Wade doing just that… Look at how destroyed his wheel is at the end!
“Here is some helmet cam footage from Morgan’s Double Whip Crash at the Kia World Extreme Games Mini Mega Ramp Comp.
“Oops… So this was a double whip… Popped out a little and didn’t rotate enough… Ended up taking me out of the comp, but I’m glad I walked away! Notice the back rim taco when it hits. Wasn’t knocked out fully, just rang my bell really hard and might have bruised some ribs. Thanks for filming it for me @mitchiebrusco84! Sorry I didn’t put on a better show this time around. You can’t land them all! Haha” – Morgan Wade.
