Stop two of the biggest BMX dirt show of the year is officially in the books – and our riders claimed both wins! Monster Energy congratulates team rider Daniel Sandoval on winning BMX Dirt at the 2022 Monster Energy BMX Triple Challenge in Arlington, Texas, on Saturday. The 27-year-old U.S. National Champion from Corona, California, soared above the competition in a high-stakes final despite winds, rain, and freezing temperatures outside AT&T Stadium Arlington.
The second win of the day went to Monster Energy BMX team rider Pat Casey from Riverside, California. In the heated competition, the 28-year-old BMX icon stomped the day’s best aerial move to claim the trophy.
Monster Energy would like to congratulate team rider’s Kyle Baldock and Colton Walker for taking silver and bronze, respectively, in BMX Dirt Finals at X Games Sydney 2018. The action popped off in front of an excited crowd at the Spotless Stadium inside Sydney Olympic Park on Saturday afternoon in Australia. Ten of the world’s best BMX riders took the course, which included three jumps, for their chance at earning X Games glory. Each rider was given three attempts, which made for an exhilarating contest that was action-packed and filled with some of the heaviest BMX tricks in the game.
Baldock, 27, is no stranger to this event and definitely had his heart set on gold being on his home turf and having his mom there to watch for the first time ever. Unfortunately, he had to settle for silver today, but still rode with plenty of passion and sent it for the fans.
“Just to be here and actually have X Games in Sydney, and have my mom here for the first time ever is so good,” said Baldock. On the last run I just went for it — X Games mode. All the boys made me go out and send it.”
Baldock came out swinging, and laid down a super clean first run, which was filled with amplitude, style, and technical tricks. The judges were impressed with his run which included; a 360 flip, front flip no hander, and ended with a cash roll. The crowd went wild for the cash roll, which he put down
When the weather turned out better the Dirt contest at the 2018 X-Games in Sydney got on its way. With minimum practice the riders sent it anyway with the following ranking as the result. The finals will be crazy. Count on that one.
