This year Munich Mash had a Miniramp contest. With 12 invited riders riding the contest in front of a big crowd, it wasn't short of action. The 040BMXPARK Spine Mini was built up and a big crowd gathered around it when the contest started. 4 riders would make it to the "Superfinal" which wasn't an easy job if you looked at the starters list. When Alex Hiam, Jack Clark, Michael Beran and Kevin Peraza don't make the cut, you know the top four already delivered the goods during qualifying. With 2 out of 3 runs counting towards a final score, Argentinean Jose Torres, Daniel Dhers, Kostya Andreev and Pat Casey made it to the final which was started straight after qualifying. Again the two best scores out of the three runs would count in the final and with the crowd behind the riders they cut loose.
Pat Casey has a Miniramp in his backyard and has turned into the fakie master. It's amazing to see how consistent he his in doing 180 tailwhips or 180 barspins over the spine to do something while coming in fakie on the other side. A 360 tailwhip for instance. But Pat is not limited to doing his fakie tricks, he's got the skills to go tech, high and bring the tricks. A few too many mistakes brought the American home on place number four, just missing the podium. Pat had won the Best Trick comp the previous day so not a bad weekend after all for Pat. Daniel Dhers found himself on the podium once again. Daniel is so solid in his riding and does so many tricks, knows when he needs to step it up, and

Monster Energy congratulates Monster Army riders Colton Walker and Brian Fox on their first and third-place wins in BMX Triple Hit at the second Nitro World Games at the Rice-Eccles Stadium in Salt Lake City, Utah. With live coverage on NBC during a single three-hour broadcast, Monster Energy’s world-class athletes took a total of four trophies across tonight’s FMX and BMX events.
A progression-focused trick fest, the Triple Hit is three jumps where the only option is doing the three hardest tricks in succession. With the best riders in the world next to him, Walker stepped up to the challenge to take the win with his very last run in this insane event and his second consecutive win.
With the return of the Nitro World Games to Salt Lake City on Saturday, the revolutionary competition took action sports to never seen before levels of excitement and achievement. The NBC primetime television audience, global livestream viewers and the Rice-Eccles Stadium crowd all witnessed action sports history with scores of world’s first landed during the event. Over 40 athletes competed in six finals on a massive course. Harry Bink topped the podium in FMX Best Trick. Ryan Williams took home two first place trophies, both in BMX Best Tricks (defending his 2016 title) and Scooter Best Tricks. Other repeat winners include Colton Walker (BMX Triple Hit), Levi Sherwood (FMX) and Elliot Sloan (Skate Best Trick).
12 invited riders made it to Munich, Germany for the annual Munich Mash event. Instead of a street comp, this year's edition hosts a Spine Miniramp contest and with riders like Kostya Andreev (RUS), Kevin Peraza (USA), Alex Hiam (AUS), Jack Clark (GBR), Pat Casey (USA), Daniel Wedemeijer (NED), Tom Justice (GBR), Timo Schulze (GER), Gilles Torres (ARG), Tobias Freigang (GER), Daniel Dhers (VEN), and Paul Thoelen (GER) you can understand the level was off the hook. Friday was used to do a Best Trick contest and the bangers came out on day one already. It was a rough decision to make the call who would go home with the €1000,= check and 1 year Gravity membership but in the end it went to Pat Casey. Alex Hiam was in the lead for a while with a whip to footjam whip to fakie over the double coping spine. Kevin Peraza's 540 bluetooth g-turn nosepick was off the hook as was Daniel Wedemeijer's icepick on the wall and Tom Justice's 270 over ice to toothpick on the spine to 270 back over. Michael Beran was on fire pulling the handplant backflip over the spine to one-handed lander to one handed barspin on the next wall. His big trick was the bikeflip tailwhip which he perfectly executed. Pat Casey's fakie skills got him the win. The 180 barspin to no-hander over the spine to fakie 360 tailwhip did it. The check and the 1-year Gravity membership went to Riverside.
Contest will happen on Saturday afternoon. Stay tuned for that. Possible live feed too.
