On March 20, a virtual who's who of BMX riders of X Games fame will gather at Northern Illinois University's Convocation Center to compete in the first event of the 2010 ASA Big Air BMX Triples season. For one night only, the world’s best BMX pros will be pitted against their equally talented rivals in a head-to-head contest sure to be filled with mind-boggling stunts, heart-stopping excitement and intense competition, which will leave only one man standing!
The twelve athletes competing at NIU in the first ASA BMX Triples event of the year are:
Austin Coleman Lake Forest, California
Scotty Cranmer Howell, New Jersey
Rob Darden Concord, California
Daniels Dhers Caracas, Venezuela
Brandon Dosch Lake Orion, Michigan
Brett Banasiewicz South Bend, Indiana
Ryan Guettler Queensland, Australia
Koji Kraft Addison, Illinois
Craig Mast Champion, Ohio
Ryan Nyquist Los Gatos, California
Colton Satterfield Salt lake City, Utah
Zack Warden O’Fallon, Illinois
The list of superstar talent includes the winners of previous ASA BMX Triples contests: Darden (Cincinnati, OH 2008) and Guettler (Minneapolis, MN and Costa Mesa, CA 2009), as well as X Games Medalists Nyquist, Cranmer and Dhers, and local heroes Kraft and Warden.
The ASA BMX Triples, produced by leading action sports event producer ASA Entertainment, showcases the best all-around riders in BMX, challenging the athletes' combined box jumping and dirt jumping skills over a completely unique 180 ft. long wooden course. Momentum from the 25 ft. tall roll-in ramp propels them over two 25 ft. wide jumps and a massive course-ending quarter-pipe. The riders attack the course, throwing down three back-to-back tricks in quick succession, displaying the technique, control, daring and style that make them the sports' best. These athletes regularly push the sports’ boundaries as well as their own limits, surprising fans with mind-boggling aerial stunts.
The battle begins on Saturday, March 20, at 7:30 pm. Tickets prices range from $37.00 for reserved floor seats, which include a pre-event athlete autograph session, to $22.00 for upper bowl seating. NIU students will receive a $4.00 discount with a valid NIU OneCard. Tickets are available at all Ticketmaster outlets, www.ticketmaster.com , by phone at 800 745 3000, or at the NIU Convocation Center Box Office located at 1525 W. Lincoln Highway in DeKalb.
