Despite the Covid-19 pandemic the Toyota BMX Triple Challenge took place in Houston on Saturday. The set-up consisted of a big portable roll-in, two giant sets and the quarterpipe at the end. Some serious talent made it to Texas for the comp and watch the first round of the Monster Supercross event in the evening. When everything was done and dusted this is how the podium looked:

The drive-by celebration has become a staple for celebrating big moments in 2020, and the holidays will be no exception. This past weekend, X-Games gold medalist Terry Adams took on the spirit of the season with a two-mile ride through JINGLE BEAT, Nashville’s outdoor drive-thru light, sound and sensory experience. While guests enjoyed enchanting lights from the comfort of their car, Terry put on his own display of showstopping tricks, captured through the lens of Nashville-based celebrity photographer, Robby Klein.
“It was a fun opportunity to have the racetrack to myself,” said Terry. “Riding around with all the lights made it feel like a real-life video game.”
Terry is no stranger to taking the sport of Flatland BMX to places it’s never been before. To celebrate this year’s Harvest Moon, the 2020 NORA Cup Rider of the Year brought Flatland to the edge of a cliff in Northwest Arkansas for a special photo project.
“This year has given me a unique opportunity to innovate and improve through photo projects with Red Bull, digital Flatland contests and finding ways to stay close with the bike community on social media.”
Terry continues to redefine the perceived limits of what Flatland BMX is and where it can go. By showcasing his trademark tricks at JINGLE BEAT, he continues push the sport into 2021 with the style

Murray Loubser is a BMX Street sensation in his native South Africa and he has combined with his mentor - former rider and Red Bull Photographer Wayne Reiche - to create a hypnotic Cape Town video with 'Shapes in the City'. Here is all you need to know:
- The 24-year-old Loubser honed his BMX skills in the sleepy village of Gansbaai after moving from Cape Town and went on to win the coveted Ghetto Jam title in 2015.
- South African bike legend Reiche has had a huge effect on Loubser's career and they hooked up for this project after Loubser's 'Desert Ride' with Eric Garbers in 2018.
Finally I have been at the ZooPark! I've travelled with VFL towards Priero to attend the C1 that Alessandro and the Italian federation organized in the park which he built near his house. I expected to have an epic day with Daniel Dhers, Daniel Wedemeijer, Nikita Ducarroz and all the athletes from our national team.
We crossed all of northern Italy, passing through Voghera to retrieve Patrick (@patriziodeturana), the best speaker in the game, up and down the hills of Barolo without even being able to taste at least a glass, pushing to start our working weekend. Unfortunately we also drove through villages severely affected by the previous day's flooding, a torment to see.
Arrived for dinner we joined the national team for a quick pizza in front of their hotel. In the team there were two newcomers, the guys who participated in the Italian championship a few weeks ago, Lucas Vega and Christian Ceresato. Unfortunately a lot of the other guys are missing due to ongoing injury.
We not stayed up late, just a couple of extra beers at the end of the dinner and straight to our rooms, Ale booked us two rooms in the hotel next to his house, so we were close by. We woke up fresh and rested
