Event: Right Guard BMX Championships Vans Triple Crown Stop #3
Date: September 26, 2004
Place: Huntington Beach,CA.
This was the fist Vans Triple Crown ever that Ryan Nyquist did not win dirt. He crashed on two of his runs and finished down in 11th. It's kind of ironic that here and the only other dirt contest that he's not won this year, Ryan Guettler has won.
After the dirt contest, they had a weird "synchronized dirt jump contest" thing. Three guys would all hit the jumps and they'd either do tricks side-by-side, or right behind each other. It made for some pretty good pics. That's what today's photo is of. It's Robbie Miranda flipping and if you look real close, you can see Lance Mosley right next to him. The crew of Lavin, Foster, & Bohan won that event.

This was supposedly the last Vans Triple Crown BMX contest. Rumor has it that Vans isn't doing some or all of their other contests (FMX, skate, wakeboard, snowboard, etc) next year as well.

Luke Parslow hucked a double flip on his last run on dirt and almost pulled it. If he had hung on, it would have been close.

Five out of the top nine in the dirt contest were from Australia.

With his second place finish in Dirt, Nyquist is crowned the 2004 Vans Triple Crown of BMX overall champion and throughout the entire series this season, has pocketed more than $35,000 and a Ford Ranger FX4.
