X Games 2017 - Dirt Qualifying Highlights.16 dudes battling it out for seven spots in the finals to join Kevin Peraza, James Foster, and Ben Wallace in the finals on Saturday. I'll let the runs speak for themselves...or maybe I'm just really tired.
I'm not gonna be factual, but in my opinion, this was the best vert event in recent history. Everyone rode well, the back and forth of Vince Byron and Jamie Bestwick made for a hell of a contest, and DMC was all right...that's good with me.
Pulling double duty as father and supreme human on a bike, Gary Young's "day at the office" is a bit more entertaining than most. From whipping up some eggs, chilling at the park for a morning session, barging a pool, and hitting up an epic ditch, Gary shows how he Shreds Til Dad. Thank you to LifeProof for making this project possible, Gary for killing it, the whole Young family, Matty, Hoang, Tom, Pat, and GoPro for hooking me up with the dialed drone and gimbal setup.
Headed out to stay with Parker Heath in San Diego for around a week and we decided to try and film a little video during my stay. Heres what we came up with hope y'all enjoy!Filmed by Jamie Cooper-Ellis and Parker Heath.
2017 X Games Dirt practice.The jumps are dialed in and the big tricks are starting to go down. Watch as Nick Bruce, Logan Martin, Hucker, Andy Buckworth, Chris Doyle, Kevin Peraza, and the rest of the boys get dialed in!
Soooo, my wireless mic setup is getting zero range in this massive stadium, so I can't do any mic'd up stuff. My apologies. As a consolation prize, I strapped this new GoPro Karma Grip with the Cable Extension setup onto willing victims and had them give you a first person view around all the courses here at X Games. A sincere thanks to Drew Bezanson, Simon Tabron, Morgan Wade, Colin Varanyak, and Anthony Napolitan for being down.The setup didn't work too well for the street course, but hey, can't win 'em all.
X Games has migrated north to Minneapolis and both Jeff and I are doing the ol' X Games shuffle trying to stack both riding and the oddness in between. Got a few things in the works, but I figured that a straight forward, no frills riding edit from the day was in order. Lots of cruising on day one, but some shit will definitely go down. Check back all week...
Day 2 here at the XGAMES, riders are getting ready for there contests, I am practicing for the live announcing making sure everything goes all smooth. The riding here at the XGAMES is at another level, the dirt jumps are bigger than ever, the vert riders are going as high as they possibly can. I have no idea how they are able to go as high as they do. And the park riders are getting used to the course. Tomorrow the vert finals go down and are the first event of the XGAMES so get ready for that video!
