Monster Energy congratulates Kyle Baldock on being crowned the overall champion of the inaugural three-stop Toyota BMX Triple Challenge. A scaled-down event that’s sole focus is to progress the level of tricks possible, the Toyota BMX Triple Challenge brought the best riders in the world to compete in a two jump, winner takes all huckfest. With a first place win in Anaheim, CA and a second place in Glendale, AZ, Baldock came to the third and final event in Atlanta with an 11-point lead. But, with the unique format of the event that gives points to the Best Trick event winner, the overall championship was really open for several heavy hitters to include Brandon Loupos, Nick Bruce, and Logan Martin to take the win.
The BMX Indoor in Caen, France doesn't only have a race going on. Dirt jump demos were part of the show as well as the first round of the French BMX Flatland Cup.

The final round of the 2017 Toyota Triples just finished in Atlanta. The good thing about these events is that they're held at the AMA MX Supercross series so the riders get to see the motocross after the event as well. Well, that's not really the best thing, the riding itself has gone insane and the riders present are taking BMX to a different level. The final round had an Australian podium with Brandon Loupos in third, Kyle Baldock in second and a first for Logan Martin. American Jake Leiva received a $3000 USD check for his Best trick and Baldock scored the 2017 Toyota Triples overall title. Hopefully back for next season as it also shows the sport to many MX fans at each stop.
