The final stop of the BMX Triple Challenge went down in Nashville this weekend. The squad of riders was a bit lower due to some injuries, event conflicts, and I think some sentiments that people were out of the race for the overall title. Some weather cancelled the plans for Friday, so they dropped the LCQ/Semi-Finals and ran 20 riders down to eight. Even with the lower group of riders, the level never ceases to amaze...
By OUR BMX: We're in Glendale, AZ, for the second stop of the BMX Triple Challenge. An open invite event, the qualifications go down as a non-public event and the top 16 will make it to the main show during the "Party At The Pits" before Supercross. Here are the hightlights.
The jumps are massive, they're kind of spread too far apart, and there's still some headwind causing problems, but 15 riders definitely went in to make it into the finals. For those about to go buck in the comments, this was a bit of a last minute event thrown alongside the Moto GP in the UK, so just appreciate the fact that there's something in the works.
Two absolutely massive jumps with three lips? Yup, that's the setup at the final stop of the Toyota Triple Challenge in Denver, Colorado. It's heavy in the contest season with Vans going down at the same time and the first FISE stop kicking off just a few days later. But nonetheless, the level of riding at this event never disappoints.
Matt Cordova, Jason Watts, Parker Heath, Brad Maple, Victor Muñoz, Jamie Cooper-Ellis, Corey Bohan, Ronnie Napolitan, Cauan Madona, and more battle it out for a chance to compete in the finals at the 2018 Vans BMX Pro Cup in Guadalajara, Mexico.
