X-Games 16 Recap

Congratulations to Dakota Roche for making it in the top 5 of this year’s X-Games! He put in a good mix of burliness and tech and we were psyched to see him all the way to the finals.

Van Homan’s X-Games experience didn’t go as well and a skull fracture took him to the hospital. He was in the ICU this weekend but hopefully should be in regular care by now. Get well soon Van!

Homan and Roche in X-Games

Van Homan and Dakota Roche are competing in Street for this year’s X-Games. Aside from a nasty spill that Van took towards the end of street practice, both look like they have some moves up their sleeves. Watch the practice video above from Ride BMX. Street prelims happen today and finals tomorrow. Good luck guys!

UPDATE: I guess Van’s spill was much worse than we originally thought. He’s in the hospital right now and out of X-Games. Get well soon Van!
