Markus Wilke over at Freedom BMX sent through three videos they put together from X-Games Barcelona for you guys to check out. Above we’ve got a video from Big Air practice, then below we’ve got a look at Vert and Park practice and finally an interview with Bruno Hoffmann (The interview is in German soo… just a heads up.). Take a peek!
The Vans guys were in heavy attendance during the X-Games stop in Barcelona last weekend. Check out this video featuring Bruno Hoffmann, Dan Lacey, Bas Keep, Gary Young, Coco Zurita, Matthias Dandois, Scotty Cranmer, Sean Sexton, Dakota Roche and more getting in riding and autograph sessions while they were there. It was a good weekend for them for sure.
Want to know why Zack Warden won Big Air at X-Games Barcelona? Watch this video and I think it will be more than obvious. Zack’s been an absolute shredder for years and I’m stoked to see him finally getting the recognition he deserves. Congratulations, Zack!

Over the last few days, things in Barcelona have been getting pretty wild with the X-Games going on. There’s been a TON of footage popping up and I’m sure this is just the start of it, but I’ve compiled a bunch of videos courtesy of Vital BMX, Ride UK and Freedom giving you a look at what’s been going on in practice and everything. This is just the start so keep your eyes open for more footage to surface!

I can’t begin to explain how stoked I am that Gary Young took home the gold medal at X-Games in Barcelona this morning. Gary is one of my all time favorite riders personally and I think it’s a pretty well known fact that after all these years he was LONG overdue for one of these wins. Today that all changed when he absolutely killed it on the course. Take a look at his winning run in the video above. Below we’ve got the top 5. Expect PLENTY of footage from the X-Games to surface over the next few days.
1 Gary Young 75.00
2 Ryan Nyquist 73.00
3 Scotty Cranmer 72.00
4 Sergio Layos 69.00
5 Daniel Dhers 68.00
6 Drew Bezanson 67.00
