We have the action sports golden ticket. Pastranaland is an action sports playground in Maryland that happens to also be where Travis Pastrana lives. And like Willy Wonka’s chocolate factory, it’s invite only. And also like Wonka’s place, you can hurt yourself pretty bad if you don’t know what you’re doing. Totally worth it. SEE IT
Eye on the big prize. Brandon Loupos crushed it at FISE Budapest. The win puts him in second place worldwide in the 2017 UCI BMX Freestyle Park rankings and the top seeded Australian rider. Why are we so excited? BMX riders aren’t just trying to win competitions now, they’re jockeying to qualify to compete at the first-ever BMX Freestyle Park event at the Tokyo Olympics 2020. WATCH IT
YouTuber Roman Atwood came to one of our live shows. The inevitable result was a trip down Giganta, and the precedent for non-pros hitting the big ramp is well established. You wipe out your first try, and it sucks. Roman has some experience in action sports, so he’s not a newbie. But as he’ll plainly tell you in the video, this ramp is no joke. He handled himself well on one drop in. The other? Let’s just say one out of two ain’t bad. SEE IT
Don’t forget! Travis Pastrana and Subaru Rally Team USA teammate and rival David Higgins will face off a final time in Round 6 of the 2017 ARA National Championship at the Ojibwa Forests Rally this weekend. Competition has been fierce all summer. Travis goes into the weekend just five points behind. A win this weekend will result in a tie-breaker based on a points system of all stage finish positions. In other words, if Travis wins, the championship will come down to math. Don’t let anyone tell you math isn’t useful in the real-world. RALLY AROUND IT
