When Jean Claude Van Damme and his loyal league of BMX riding ninjas, the Cluut crew, call upon BMXers to attend their annual Cluut jam in Brussels, you know you're in for a shit load of fun and mayhem. Sit back and let Rachid take you through the day's best with his signature style of commentary. Enjoy! CLUUT CLUUT CLUUT!
A sick, well designed, concrete street course isn't the first thing that comes to mind when you think of the FISE series, but they really stepped things up in that department this year - and the resulting runs reflected the upped quality of course. 57 riders got whittled down to 12 in qualifications, and those 12 then put on a hell of a show for the sun soaked French audience. Enjoy all the best from Street and then get yourself down to the next FISE event to experience it first hand.
X Games Shanghai closed out with a another day filled with Skateboard, BMX and Moto X competitions, along with musical performances and interactive activities including drone and go cart racing in X Fest. The action kicked off with BMX Street, where American Garrett Reynolds reclaimed his spot atop the podium and earned his 10th gold in the discipline and 13th medal overall. Reynolds threw down a toboggan 360 and truckdriver, both over the dragon feature on the course, along with a downside 180 tailwhip to fakie and a hopover smith grind on the rainbow rail. Reynolds edged out German rider Felix Prangenberg (85.00) who took silver, and X Games Minneapolis gold medalist Chad Kerley (84.00) took home the bronze.
