  • 2011 Red Bull Trick or Treat Results

    New York, NY - October 28, 2011 - To kick off Halloween weekend in style, 32 BMX bikers donned costumes and showed off their best moves at the Red Bull Trick or Treat contest. For the third time in four years, some of the best hit a creative course that featured Halloween-themed obstacles from a curved grim reaper rail box to tricked-out coffins. This year's "Live or Die" new format featured heats of six riders, where only the top two riders advanced. The top finalists proved to be a mash-up of big contest strength, like that of a professional, an amateur and a youngin.

    Newtown Barge Park in Greenpoint, Brooklyn held the attention of over 500 fans as temperatures dipped into the low 40s. With midtown Manhattan in the background, top honors went to Jackson, New Jersey native Scotty Cranmer, who was recently crowned Dew Tour overall champion, and second to the Bronx's Pablo Nunez, whose first contest ever was Red Bull Trick or Treat and Sean Ricany, who's sixteen years was enough to compete against the big dogs. Best trick honors went to Zac Costa, whose footjam nosepick on the RIP quarter was the night's best.

    While bikes were flying and wheels were turning, Ricany's manual to nose wheelie to barspin and his no handed flip jam nosepick on the sub box made the judges mind melt. Nunez didn't let his new nickname of "honeybadger" by the MC slow him down a bit. His 360 tailwhip drops over the hip set the crowd roaring. Scott Cranmer came ready to ride with his Danny Zuko wig and Grease Lighting jacket. His multiple fufano moves on the judges tower and tail whip drop from the sub box with the East River in the background were what BMX dreams are made of.

    It's an amazing honor to ride well here and I appreciate getting to participate as a semi-local since I'm from New Jersey," says Cranmer, Red Bull Trick or Treat's 2010 and 2011 champion. "It's not just another contest. Getting dressed up loosens the mood and helps get people excited about BMX."

    The event brought out many more local riders because of a last minute date change due to weather. Yet all types of riders were represented, from local hero and professional Edwin De La Rosa who helped conceive the contest, to last year's top competitors including Augie Simoncini, and Bruno Hoffman. Even on a chilly night, it was Cranmer who proved he could heat things up and ride away victorious for the second year in a row.

  • Red Bull Trick or Treat goes off in Brooklyn


    To celebrate Halloween weekend Red Bull put on their third annual Halloween themed BMX contest in Brooklyn, NY. This year's "Live or Die" new format featured heats of six riders, where only the top two riders advanced.

  • 2011 Dew Tour Championships Results

    Scotty Cranmer may have won Las Vegas and taken the park cup this year, but Dennis Enarson will be the most talked about (again) this year as he takes the dirt cup home and 2nd place on the park standings. Impressively, Enarson still took home the dirt cup after a fourth place finish in Las Vegas. His previous outstanding performances in dirt would prove helpful as he beats out 2nd place dirt finisher Brett Banasiewicz by a mere 10 points.

    So, to recap the event specifically, Scotty Cranmer won park and truly came back onto the scene after his injury-prone season a few years ago. Nobody is wondering where he went anymore, as he takes home the overall Dew Tour cup for park this year. Dennis Enarson will take second in park which is quite fitting as he finished second to Scotty on the overall park standings as well. Daniel Dhers takes third in park for the championship event but after a lackluster year it only lands him in fifth place on the overall standings.

    Continuing with park, Brett Banasiewicz finished fourth in Las Vegas and fourth on the year, a funny coincidence as results for this specific event often match results on the overall standings for park. So, unfortunately, the golden child will not finish a podium spot in park but he makes up for it on the dirt side of things. Kyle Baldock is an exception to the rule as he places fifth in Vegas which will boost his season standing to 3rd place, clutching a podium spot with his previous good performances this year.

    Moving on to dirt, we already talked about this year's overall winner (Enarson) whom only took fourth place yesterday so we'll move on to the rest of the pack. Brett Banasiewicz takes third in Las Vegas and second overall this year. Luckily for him, he takes home some hardware after JUST missing out in park. Kyle Baldock will take home two pieces of hardware, his 3rd in park and another 3rd in dirt. He actually WON the dirt event in Vegas which boosted his lower season scores in to a podium spot.

    Ben Wallance and Brandon Dosch also boost their scores this season to land in the top 5 in Vegas and on the overall tour. Wallace takes second in Vegas and Dosch takes 5th in Vegas. With this, Wallace boosted his placing to fourth on the year and Dosch held a steady fifth place on the tour to round out the top 5. I must mention how close the dirt standings were this year, as places 1-5 were all about 10 points difference each.

    Over on the vert ramp, I have been WAITING for this to happen. Last year I thought it was Coco Zurita that would come up and challenge the household vert names, but this year it's up and comer Vince Byron. The podium spots were easily lost and gained and, even though Bestwick won yet ANOTHER vert cup, it was a close battle where Steve McCann gave Bestwick a serious run for his money. In Las Vegas, Vince Byron won the event, Steve McCann took second, and Jamie Bestwick took third. The overall tour results, however, will be flipped. Jamie Bestwick wins this year's vert cup, McCann takes second (he has to be tired of the number 2 by now), and Vince Byron takes home 3rd and sets a tone for the future of vert.

    Jimmy Walker, whom topped off the vert semi finals, took fourth in Vegas and fifth place overall this year. In front of him on the standings was Simon Tabron who placed a disappointing seventh in Vegas but will remain in the top 5 standings after impressive finishes earlier this year. Again, the scores were incredibly close as the difference between first and third for the year was 10 points, meaning McCann was less than 10 points away from a win. Also, 4th and 5th place were 6 points apart! Amazing.

  • Scotty Cranmer and Dennis Enarson Take Wins at Dew Tour Portland

    You know how everybody says "I would hate to be a judge at this event" and such because of the level of riding these days? Well, it's true. And it's quite evident when you look at the scores and see that the difference between almost all the placings is less than a point. Riders like Dennis Enarson miss the podium in park by half a point and Brett Banasiewicz (who everybody thought would come out and win everything in Dew Tour this year) is in 5th, right behind Dennis by .12 points... Less than a quarter of a point?

    This event didn't include vert, but included the dirt event which was missing from the first event of the season. Do you see this pattern of less events and less dirt and less vert? I don't want to think about it, but it's happening and it's worth noting. Regardless, Dennis Enarson took first in dirt this event, more than making up for just missing podium in park. It's great to see such a talented rider who's known for park and street blow everybody away on dirt and show amazing diversity. Same with Kyle Baldock, the park rattiest of park rats, who took second in dirt showing how his box jump mentality works even better on the dirt course which is almost like a series of box jumps.

    Brandon Dosch rounded out the dirt podium, slipping from his all star year last year. It's also worth noting Chris Doyle, a legendary, stylish rider who dominated dirt in the earlier days of dirt competition, took fourth and missed the podium by a little over a point. That would have been a nice change; almost like the time Mike Aitken won an event. Most likely my favorite Dew Tour moment. Definitely.

    On to park, Scotty Cranmer has really come back from the epic injury season a few years ago. He started at the Nike HB event a year ago and never slowed down. He rode extremely well at this summer's X Games but missed out on the gold as the contest format isn't Scotty's strength. Dew Tour's 45-second-run or whatever is definitely where Scotty shines, linking long lines and big tricks all over the course. Kyle Baldock will double up on silver medals this weekend, taking second in park as well and probably becoming rookie of the year in BMX this season. Daniel Dhers just made the podium in third place with the typical Dhers Show.

    So, some changes have happened. It's nice to see some different names as Nyquist and Reynolds were found lower on the standings list. Those guys are amazing and have had some amazing performances in Dew Tour's past, but action sports in general move so quickly. Kids can come up out of nowhere or even riders who fell off a bit (like Cranmer) can come up and take a podium spot right out from under your nose. See you in SLC, Utah where dirt and vert will take place and apparently park will be skipped, evening out the event skips this year. Big Air will happen on Sunday...
