There are a lot of good riders in the street event, such as Garrett’s teammate Dennis Enarson who took silver in both park and street… Sound familiar? Probably does, because he took silver in both park and street last year… And he lost to the same riders in both events. I’m sure it doesn’t get to him because he just loves riding, especially with Garrett, but we all thought he had gold in park this year. Dakota Roche, however, finally captured X Games hardware by taking third. The course definitely helped Roche get on the podium this year.
Nobody seems to be able to touch Garrett Reynolds, though, whom takes the win by 7 whole points. Two runs of 46 (out of 50) just can not be touched. Coming in fourth place, just missing the podium, is Ty Morrow who was a surprising standout in the X Games. People didn’t know if he was the competition type but Ty thinks if I’m gonna ride I’m gonna damn near win. And in 5th place is Jeremiah Smith, a rider more tuned to park who puts together an impressive street display.
I am personally wondering where Corey Martinez and Nathan Williams are. I mean there were definitely some worthy street contestants from BMX legend Van Homan to a true threat to Garrett Reynolds in Sean Sexton, but Martinez and Williams were some of the best additions to the street event and, though seemed to be underscored to most, can really threaten the typical podium names.
