Check out these highlights from the FISE Word Tour in Chengdu BMX qualifying event yesterday and stay tuned for Semi-Finals and the Final event going down over the next few days.
Hey, we party. Texas Toast is in Austin, and that little city has one hell of a nightlife...so I kept my cherished and cracked baby camera around my neck and shot a bunch of foggy photos over the course of the weekend. Some are really crappy and maybe some people will be bummed that I included a bad photo of 'em, but hey, fuck it...
The dudes of the dudes, the riders who rode the hardest of the year as voted by their fellow pros—here are the winners of the 2014 NORA Cup awards. We typically get this post up sooner, but the night of NORA was so damn fun we only managed to get our Instagram updates out, so here you go, all the winners in one spot.
While a majority of BMX had their eyes pulled wide open looking at the wonderful mayhem that is Texas Toast, there was another unique event being thrown by Monster in Las Vegas, Nevada. Paying a bit of homage to the Supercross event going on as the mainstay, this completely unique event that combined racing with dirt jumping on a switchable course. Two paths, two riders, two runs, and the lowest combined score counts. Yup, each rider could choose his destiny, going for speed or tricks and the scoring system laid out for the judges would make the call.
I made this video as a kick off for the Texas Toast awards at NORA Cup...it was made about two hours after the event wrapped up and it's based off the prelims video (the reason for the same song). But, I still think it does a pretty damn good job of showing how damn good Toast is as a whole. You can pretty much hear people screaming the entire time and the looseness of the event really comes through. It's something that Toast, no matter how big it gets, should ever lose.
