First, Sean Sexton undoubtedly has one of the best looking whips in BMX. It has that classic Van Homan / Taj Mihelich downside feel to it that just makes me cuss like a sailor each time I witness one happen. Second, click on over to the new Dig Website for a great gallery from Texas Toast!
I made this video as a kick off for the Texas Toast awards at NORA Cup…it was made about two hours after the event wrapped up and it’s based off the prelims video (the reason for the same song). But, I still think it does a pretty damn good job of showing how damn good Toast is as a whole. You can pretty much hear people screaming the entire time and the looseness of the event really comes through. It’s something that Toast, no matter how big it gets, should ever lose. I definitely had a great time this weekend and I’d venture to say that Toast is one of, if not the best events in BMX. Already psyched for 2015…

Ride BMX came through with a more comprehensive look at Sunday Bikes‘ Highest Bunnyhop Challenge. Brett Silva came close to matching up with Broc this year and they both ended up clearing the 48″ mark. As you’ve probably already seen though, Broc took the win by hopping over the whole thing (49″). It’s kinda wild that throughout Texas Toast’s 4 years running, Broc has made over $2,000 in cash and prices from something as simple as a bunnyhop.
Oh and another notable thing about this year’s hop contest is Kyle Hart getting foot loose and stomping an extremely high hop out of a fast-plant.
If you need a friendly reminder as to why Chase won that NORA, click on over to Dig BMX for all the proof you need.
This caption is spot on:
“What do you mean? How did Chase do so good at that contest, it says here his best trick was a 360, I can do that!” Yep, just a simple 360, we all can do these right ?
Here are some Day 3 highlights from Vital BMX!
Street is always a popular and wild event at Toast. We had over 70 riders this year so a lot of crazy shit went down. As always, Ride BMX was there to get photos of everything.
