Rollback BMX Session BMX CGN

 

 

BMX CGN

This year, the Snipes BMX CGN, (formerly BMX Worlds ) took a break to regroup and instead, had a Rollback Back to the Roots event on August 15, 2015, with a whole 1980s BMX theme- clothes, music, and riding. BMX Cologne at the Youth Park has been a major European BMX Freestyle event since 1984 and this year featured Spine Ramp, Street, Flatland and Kickturn Ramp, as well as a world premiere of the Shadow Conspiracy video, What Could Go Wrong.

Dew Tour LA

Dew Tour LA


This was the third Dew Tour event for this year. I haven’t been covering Dew Tour events, instead preferring to give some time to lesser-publicized action sports events. But this Dew Tour in Los Angeles was all skateboarding, with traditional street course and vert ramp, and the Streetstyle contest which Dew Tour has pioneered at the contest level. Actually, regular old street skating pioneered street style, and Dew Tour has successfully reincorporated raw, unpredictable surfaces and obstacles of street skating back into the contest level.


                                                                                                                                                                          

This year, Dew Tour added their first Shop Showdown, presented by TransWorld SKATEboarding
and of course music, art, and everything to celebrate the skateboarding culture and lifestyle.
                                                                                                      


Jimmy Wilkins crushed the vert contest for his first Dew Tour win, and Kelvin Hoefler won the Street and Streetstyle contests.
Those wins, along with his win in the Dew Tour Chicago, give him a solitary spot at the top of the Dew Tour this year.


The Dew Tour Shop Showdown had Denver, Colorado’s 303 Boards taking the top spot at  Dew Tour Los Angeles, with Frederick, Maryland's Pitcrew taking second.
