Dirt Session with Jaie Toohey

Many of you have seen Jaie Toohey kill it on Red Bull Dreamline (2014) and Nitro Circus doing some of the sickest Superman Backflip that any dirt rider has ever managed to skill. Some of Jaie Toohey interviews for Lords of Dirt in 2011 And my Ride BMX Keith Mulligan (no relation to Glenn hehehehh) has this snippet to say about the young rad dude Jaie. Wow. So big and scary awesome. The jumps Cam, Jed, and Jaie are hitting (in Cam’s yard in Canberra, Australia) are absolutely huge, but the tricks they’re throwing down over them make it all that much more ridiculous. These guys are pushing dirt jumping here and now. Mad props to them. This is sick. “One amazing session… Possibly the biggest set of BMX dirt jumps in the world right now… Three of the best big jump riders… BMX Dirt, how it should be…” Published on Apr 15, 2013 http://www.unit.com/ 1 amazing session… Possibly the biggest set of BMX dirt jumps in the world right now… 3 of the best big jump riders… BMX Dirt, how it should be… Athletes: Cam White, Jaie Toohey, Jed Mildon Location: Cam White’s backyard, Australia Unit Clothing: http://www.unit.com http://www.facebook.com/unitriders Twitter: @unitclothing Instagram: @unitclothing Video Production: Allan Hardy http://www.ahvisual.com http://www.facebook.com/allanhardyvisual Instagram: @allanhardyvisual Music: “Almost Famous” Swollen Members Album: Beautiful Death Machine...

Pro Dirt Final 2013 BMX Worlds

Top three riders of the Pro Dirt Final at the BMX Worlds 2013 at legendary Jugendpark / Cologne / Germany. 1 Nicholi Rogatkin [USA] 2 Nick Bruce [USA] 3 Vikt… Video Rating: 4 / 5     VIKTORS KRONBERGS Viktors Kronbergs is 21 years old BMX rider from Ventspils, Latvia. He has been riding since 2004 and just 5 years later he took 3rd place in such a big and prestigious contest as Simpel Summer Session in Tallinn. But as he says, he prefers dirt to park so when you see someone boosting jumps incredibly high in red pants, its probably Kronbergs.Dirt is also connected whith spectacular tricks like backflips double whips, frontflips or 360 double whips. That’s his playground. If he is not riding, Victors likes to spend time in a garage, tuning his car or at the club partying with friends. For chilling out he likes fishing alone or shred fresh powder on skis.   NICK BRUCE Nick came out swinging on his very first run, landing a triplewhip on the first jump and ending his run with a 360 doublewhip on the third and final set.  The run gave Nick the lead ahead of Sebastian Smith, who had thrown some gnarly tricks of his own just moments before on theTJ Lavin-designed course. Seb’s run consisted of a doublewhip, barspin and frontflip and would hold up for 2nd place over the duration of the contest. One of the only riders opting to ride the left line of the course,Dylan Sheinberg stepped things up on Run 2, going with a superman seatgrab on the first jump and following it up with a downside tailwhip and a backflip barspin. The run landed him in 3rd and would hold up for a podium...
