“Since the beginning of BMX Street at X Games, Brad Simms was on the invite list. But as Brad’s interests in traveling grew, Brad started putting competitions on the back burner and focused on video. Then quarantine hit and suddenly, Brad Simms was stuck in one place to film: Austin, Texas. Then he took to Instagram and made 2020 the year of Brad, This is Brad Simms.” – X Games
As awesome as it would be to be able to film a full video part and not get wrecked a few times, that just isn’t going to happen when you’re pushing things for something like the X Games Real BMX video contest. Here’s a compilation of crash clips and b-roll giving us a look at some of the slams and abuse these guys went through while getting the clips they needed for their parts!

Julian Molina wins the X Games Real BMX 2020 Fan Favorite vote!
Here’s some news were super stoked on and definitely had a feeling we would see after the response the video got. Julian Molina took the Fan Favorite win for X Games Real BMX 2020 with 45.68% of the vote, which was a landslide since Simone Barraco came in 2nd with 17.01% of the vote and Garrett Reynolds with 13.35% of the vote. Check out Julian’s section from the full show where they announced the winners, before the Fan Favorite vote took place. This gives a good behind the scenes look at how much work Julian put into this! Hell yeah, Julian!
“Julian Molina is the first adaptive athlete to compete in the Real Series. At age 7, Julian lost his leg in a skateboarding accident. Then he picked up a BMX bike and started devising new techniques to ride street with just one leg and a crutch to maneuver. We normally don’t feature the behind the scenes segments of all the athletes in the Real Series (it’s in the full episode though) but we thought this cutdown was worth it because Julian is a straight up badass! Julian also just won the #RealBMX Fan Favorite: X Games Real BMX 2020” – X Games
