Nitro Circus, in partnership with the Queensland Government through Tourism and Events Queensland and Brisbane City Council through Brisbane Economic Development Agency, announces that Nitro World Games will make its Australian debut next year. This news sees the revolutionary action sports competition resume its international expansion. Coming to Suncorp Stadium on October 23 – 24, 2021, Nitro World Games Brisbane will draw athletes from across the globe to a country that is already home to some of the most prominent figures in action sports. Next year, the best in freestyle motocross (FMX), BMX, skateboarding and scooter will battle for championship honors while pushing the limits of human achievement.
Monster Energy congratulates Ben Wallace for his flawless showing at the first ever Nitro World Games park event and Monster Army’s Brian Fox on his Best Trick victory. Wallace’s well-rounded approach to the unique bowl made his runs stand out among the best in the world, while Fox put body and bike on the line in the 20-minute jam event. A private event at a brand new facility nestled north of San Diego, the inaugural Nitro World Games event brought out the best riders in the world looking for their portion of the $300,000 prize purse. But it wouldn’t be a quick road, as Ben would have to battle his way through Quarter and Semi Finals to even have a shot at walking away with a trophy and some cash.
Wallace was on point the whole way through, combining everything—big tricks, boosted airs, speed, unique lines, and technical tricks—in his runs time and time again. He kicked off each run with a massive lookback transfer into a vert quarter, but he upped the level in his very last run in Finals to seal the third place finish.
From that very first transfer Wallace kept the speed going through a unique line that seemed impossible to everyone watching. Stylish and boosted one-footed X-ups, toboggans, and no-handers filled each wall, a different huge transfer with a tailwhip, and then cutting an unreal line to a flair across the longest quarter in the park. A double tail-whip over the box, an alley-oop lookback, a whip over the triangle spine, and an insane double tail-whip pocket air were the remaining bangers of his run.
The fourth event of Nitro World Games 2018 came to a close Saturday with an epic BMX Park final. The best riders in the world raised the bar in the debut of Nitro World Games BMX Park. All six athletes upped their game in front of BMX icons like TJ Lavin, inspiring podium finishers Logan Martin (1st), Dennis Enarson (2nd), and Ben Wallace (3rd) to go all in. That competition was experienced globally, thanks to the Nitro World Games Facebook livestream that let fans worldwide be part of the two-day competition for free.
BMX legend TJ Lavin provided expert analysis during competition and was thrilled with the overall
INSANE BEST TRICK JAM - NITRO WORLD GAMES. I love me a best trick contest, especially when it's 20 minutes long and lets anyone drop as many times as they want. Winner takes $5000, so you know dudes were willing to get buck.
Six riders, three runs...everyone pretty much stomped the runs they wanted and simply attempted to add to them in small, add-a-trick type ways, so I figured just putting everyone's best run in order was the best way to show how the contest went... Either way, Nitro World Games was a damn exciting event. The bowl was amazing, the riding was even more so, and the vibe was on point.
