Terry Adams droped a line to let us know that the Voodoo Jam went down this past weekend and it was one of the best ever. They had 500 people packed into a nightclub in New Orleans to watch one of the best flatland comps of the year. Terry came in third and Matt Wilhelm came in 7th. Congrats to both of them!
Nathan was up against some really heavy hitters in the Street Finals and did a great job. It look’s like he just couldn’t put the runs together as well as he did yesterday but he is still the man and we’re proud of him. Check out Fat Tony’s coverage of all the actions here and his sweet picture of Nathan from yesterday.
Nathan did super well today in X Games BMX Street prelims. He qualified 2nd over all doing some really big and tech tricks like an over icepick grind, a long hang 5 to 50/50 to 180 out, a huge 360 drop & a big 180 drop over a rail. Watch all the highlights here and tune in tomorrow at 8pm ET to watch our man in the finals. After watching everybody else’s runs it looks like it’s going to be really good.
Nathan just did his first run in eliminations and was happy with it. He’s getting ready to start his 2nd. You can watch it live here.
We’re really excited for Nathan to be at X Games again this year. Nathan said he was looking forward to it and was actually training a little this year. Practice has already begun. Good luck, Nathan and have fun! Check the United site, Tunney on ESPN and Dans360 for daily updates about how he is doing.
