Get inside the mind of a freestyle BMX trailblazer! Monster Energy is proud to welcome X Games gold medalist and BMX icon Andy Buckworth on Episode 24 of the sports and pop culture podcast UNLEASHED with The Dingo and Danny. Released today across Monster Energy’s social media channels, this latest 53-minute episode sits down with the 31-year-old BMX innovator from Lake Haven, Australia. Known for pushing the boundaries of aerial moves, Buckworth is riding at the top of his game and claimed his career-first X Games gold medal in summer 2021.
“Lifelong goal achieved! You don’t understand what that means to me. Growing up in Australia, I always wanted to ride in an X Games. Forever I wanted to win gold at an X Games, solidify my spot after all
The greatest show in BMX dirt riding is officially back! Monster Energy congratulates team rider Andy Buckworth on winning the Best Trick event at the 2022 Monster Energy BMX Triple Challenge in Anaheim, California, on Saturday. In the series opener at Angel Stadium in Anaheim, the 31-year-old from Lake Haven, Australia, also took second place in the BMX Dirt competition. Buckworth was joined on the podium by a new addition to the Monster Energy roster: At age 27, Daniel Sandoval from Corona, California is known as the U.S. National Champion and he unleashed a barrage of 360 combos, with the culminating run consisting of a 360 barspin-to-downside whip-to-late barspin followed a 360 double whip-to-whip back for third place.
Well pretty much anywhere you find me most likely it will be on two wheels. This time is a little different though since no motors are involved haha. Traded in horsepower for pedal power this afternoon. A BMX session with Kurtis Downs and Andy Buckworth was a perfect change of pace.
Name Park: Soprano spot Operator: Myself Andy Buckworth Location: California, USA
What are the Covid-19 restrictions where you live at the moment? Andy Buckworth: Right now we are allowed to leave the house to exercise, visit the dr, or visit the grocery store. Restaurants are open, for take away only.
How does it feel having a ramp available whenever you feel like riding? Andy Buckworth: Honestly it’s a blessing. I hate being off my bike and even though there aren’t any events coming up, I still ride my bike every day.
Has the yard seen much change since you bought the house? Andy Buckworth: Not yet. However I plan to make some pretty substantial changes. Hopefully in the near future.
Monster Energy congratulates Pat Casey and Andy Buckworth on their second and third place finish at the final stop of the Toyota BMX Triple Challenge in Denver, Colorado. It’s been 13 years since a Supercross hit Denver, Colorado, and with its return came the highest level of dirt riding at the Toyota Triple Challenge. The final stop of the year pushed progression even further with the biggest jumps ever seen at the series, and arguably the largest of any event. As always many of the best riders in the world, along with hungry up-and-comers converged on Colorado to see what they could get done.
The qualifying event on Friday wasn’t open to the public, but the level of riding remains unchanged. Although the Denver setup did bring one huge difference: the jumps themselves. A 20-foot-tall roll-in
After 10 months off the bike with multiple broken bones and numerous surgeries, Andy is back on the bike and getting back to his old self. Thanks to the local diggers at the trail spot, your hard work is appreciated.
