2018 BMX Triple Challenge Kicks Off With a Banger

January 16, 2018

The first stop of the 2018 BMX Triple Challenge went down at the beginning of the month, and if the first major BMX event of the year is any indication, 2018 is going to be a big one for BMX. The biggest names came out to ride in Anaheim, California, on one of the sweetest competition dirt setups in the mix right now. Kyle Baldock, TJ Ellis, James Foster, Colton Walker, Brian Fox, and David Godziek were among the competitors. The comp is straightforward: Riders drop in and perform back-to-back tricks over the two-jump setup. Best run wins. Open qualifying means anyone has a chance to come ride with the best. In the end, Godziek took home the top prize, with Baldock and Walker rounding out the podium. Jacob Bailey rode away with the best trick award, landing a nutty 360 front bikeflip in what many would call the moment of the competition. Here’s that and some of the other highlights:
