The ladies took the park course to show everyone they deserve a shot at X Games gold…
It’s been a long road for the girls that ride BMX and they’ve been putting in the work to get the recognition and respect they deserve. With each year, there are more girls riding BMX around the world and they’re constantly progressing.
For X Games 2017, a group of girls lead by Nina Buitrago were able to get out on the park course for their own demo session to show everyone just what they got. These girls travelled from all over the world on their own dime to prove to everyone they are willing to do what it takes to show everyone they want this. The goal of the event was to show they deserve to have their own class in the X Games next year, and there’s no denying that they’ve worked hard to earn a spot. Here’s a raw cut of footage featuring Nina, Hannah Roberts, Angie Marino, Perris Benegas, Nikita Ducarroz, Minato Oike, Ellie Chew, Elizaveta Posadskikh, Nikki Wetzel, Jesse Gregory and Tere Williams getting in on the fun.
Expect to see plenty more from these ladies in the future! They’re all kicking ass.
