If you watched the Live broadcast of the T-Mobile Extreme Playgrounds on FATBMX last weekend you know exactly who did what and who ran away with the biggest check. If you missed it we have the results right here. I'm pretty sure the videos will pop up shortly so you can see who did what tricks. It was a great final with a very close finish. Rob Darden came out on top and received a Champagne shower from Corey Bohan (2nd) and Ryan Guettler (3rd). But we had some parties too.
Ryan Nyquist came out the winner of the XBox 360 contest here in Duisburg, Germany. Most of the riders entered the ten minute 360 contest where the riders had to do a 360 of some sort over the last jump. Which one of Ryan's 360-s won doesn't really matter. He had 360 lookback to barspins on lockdown as well as 360 rockets to bus. Another one was a one-footed table 360 to barspin. Clean as always. Ryan Guettler's 360 double whip on the last set got second and Markus Hampl decided to unpack the superman seatgrab 360 to grab one of those XBOX 360 machines.
XBOX 360 contest results: 1. Ryan Nyquist 2. Ryan Guettler 3. Markus Hampl

BMX practice just finished at the T-Mobile Extreme Playgrounds in Duisburg, Germany. Before you tune in to that live feed of the Dirt Session we show you some pictures of the riders who are present. Basically the set up has a huge starting hill which requires some skidding before dropping in otherwise you will overshoot the first jump. Diogo Canina is the only brakeless rider in the group of 14 so keep that in mind when you watch the live feed. It's a 6 pack so three jumps in a row. The last one has a bit of a speed bump in it but other than that it's pretty standard. The riders seem to like the jumps so that's what matters. 720-s, 3-whips, oppostie 360-s are the norm in warm up these days. That sounds promising for the contest. The day is going to be long, with live bands, the MTB comp and the BMX contest as well but should be on schedule as things are going live on MTV in Germany and you can't tell them to wait for 35 minutes because you're late. Have fun listening
