“TRA Double Cross is a one of a kind BMX event that combines trail riding skill and racing strategy” is the description from this video and it fits perfectly. Dan’s Comp was a sponsor of last weekend’s TRA event in Pennsylvania. Team Rider Van Homan was one of many heavy hitters taking laps and having the time of his life. In a related article from the Red Bull website, Van had this to say about the event: ”This [Double Cross] event is really unique because, basically, you’re racing on trails,” explained Van. “The mix of people riding in this event is insane. You have current double A’s, current top dirt jumpers, guys like me who don’t belong in a pro race or pro dirt jump contest right now, but maybe this collaboration will do well for me. Maybe it won’t, I don’t know. Either way, it’s a unique opportunity to bring a lot of people together that wouldn’t normally be riding in the same event or venue.”
With the Dreamline event going on this weekend, it looks like we’re in store for even more dirt-based BMX insanity. BMX started in the dirt and it’s awesome to see this unique events taking root.
