The Chengdu leg of the FISE World Tour was insane to say the least. Chances are you saw the live stream, so you should have an idea of what I'm talking about... But when you condense all of those hammers from semi-finals and finals into a single 4-minute video, it's a totally new experience. Logan Martin, Daniel Dhers, and Alex Coleborn took top honors on the podium, but the level of riding that everyone put down was unfathomable. From simple moves done high up and with grace, to the craziest spinning/flipping tailwhip and barspin combinations you can imagine, it's all here. Also in addition to the standard two runs given to each rider, there was extra time allotted at the end of each heat for a "Best Trick"... So you know shit got out of hand.
Whether you weren't able to make it out to Nora Cup, or you're just having a hard time remembering the night, this video highlights all the feel-good moments from the amazing time we had about a week ago. One part a testament to the BMX party that is Nora Cup, and one part a promo to get you to show up and not miss out next year...

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.
