BMX TRIPLE HIT
WHO CAN STICK THE THREE BIGGEST TRICKS?
A staple of Nitro World Games in its first two years, BMX Triple Hit attracted a field of heavy-hitters, household names in the BMX competition world. The unique setup consisting of three jumps in sequence tests more than just a rider’s freestyle chops; to put down a worthy run, flow, momentum, and consistency are essential to success. This contest is always a tight one.
In the first year, Colton Walker entered as the youngest rider in the field and came away with the win. The battle for second place was decided by about a tenth of a point, but Logan Martin edged out Alex Coleborn in one of the tightest finishes of that year. Walker repeated as champion the following year, beating Nick Bruce by eight-hundredths of a point and Brian Fox by twelve-hundredths of a point. Fox had qualified in first place the prior year but had to scratch before the final due to an injury in practice, so making the podium was full redemption for him. With big names and stories like these leading to a tight competition, Triple Hit is consistently one of the most exciting events to watch.
