|Event: BS 1992 round 2 "Death in the Desert".|
Date: march 28-29, 1992.
Place: Thrasherland Skatepark, Arizona
Organisation: Hoffman crew.
Mini ramp and halfpipe only because there wasn't enough asphalt to hold a flatland and a street contest.
Karlos, BMX Plus! july 1992: People are always talking about how fast freestyle bicycling progresses. It's said that riders are constantly pushing limits and taking the sport to extremes. Okay, we will buy that, but there's more to it If you have been to a freestyle contest lately, namely the recent Bicycle Stunts event in Glendale. Arizona, you will agree that all boundaries have been broken. There is nothing considered impossible anymore. In 82, a four foot aerial was considered insane. Now, ten years later, it's nothing more than a hiccup compared to 900s, barspin 540s, tailtap 900s, nothings, nosegrinds, tailwhip airs, backflip fakies and backflip twists. The future of freestyle approaches so fast, it's almost yesterday before you can put your pads on. Don't be surprised if you didn't see this coming.
|7ft high, 1ft extension, 24ft wide. There was a really small spine-mini next to it (an 8ft canyon) where some guys did transfers.
First, Tim Ruck, feeble to fakie, pedal grinds (he doesn't have pegs).
Keith Treanor raged in the mini-ramp competition. Fat fakies and a ton of cool lip tricks pulled him the Stunt Boy win.
Jay Miron won with 5 or 6 backflip fakies.
Mongoose's Dennis McCoy packed more lip tricks into his miniramp run than anyone. This nofooted nosepick was simply a warm-up for such moves as his 900 tailtaps to no-footed backward drop-ins. He was on the money in cut-throat competition. Ice, ice, baby.
