This dude is a legit badass. Claudio is from Argentina. He's missing his right leg, but still grinds rails, 360s down stairs, hops high, and straight kills it. Watch this.

Added a new video Recon Tour 2014 - Ohio Dreams 7/23/2014 7:23 PM
C138x104

All of the highlights from this past weekend's Recon Tour stop at Ohio Dreams in Butler, Ohio. There are so many amazing riders I've never heard of in this. Watch this! Decade to 360! Trent Newkirk wins the open division at the Monster Army Recon Tour Round 3 in Butler, Ohio at the Ohio Dreams facility presented by Replay XD. As a contender in the Recon Tour finals last year, Newkirk is no stranger to the Recon Tour series and with this win will be invited back to the finals where he is definitely a regarded as a solid threat to the competition. Ohio Dreams is not the everyday skatepark most athletes are used to, but is a private world-class training facility that serves dedicated athletes to improve and progress their skills in multiple sports. The camp featured everything from a massive indoor park, outdoor parks, multiple BMX race tracks, water ramps, trampolines, etc., and proved to be an innovative action sports facility that is situated in the middle of the Mohican forest. The 13-15 division launched the competition with the youngest athletes throwing huge tricks that included back flips, tailwhips, 540's, and much more. First place went to Eddie Rovi of New Jersey, who turned 13 just days before the event and impressed with huge tricks like double tail whips, superman seat grabs, and barspins using the entire course. Second place went to Trevyn Gibbs of Tucson, AZ with his consistent riding and smooth style, and local Giovanni Mavar took third place with his impressive use of the course and fakie skills. Next up was the 16 + division, which had competitors from Virginia, Illinois, Alabama, etc. This division turned up the heat with big tricks and transfers featuring wallrides, backflip transfers, 360 bar spins, caveman drops and more. Isaiah Potter took home first with his effortless style, unique use of course and big tricks. Chase Stewart took home the second spot by with his big flairs, 360 bar to flat and big dip three's over the spine.Richie White's double whips and style secured third place. Finally the open division was set to drop in with the biggest open class and the most talented group of riders we have seen yet this year on the tour. Brett Banasiewicz was on hand and rode in his second Recon Tour of the year. He always inspires all the athletes with his positive attitude and his courageous battle of recovery. All of the athletes were laying it on the line and a few did get broken off. This division was as intense as it gets with athletes throwing tricks like frontflips, 360 double whips, 720's, cash rolls and much more. Alexander Lansaw attempted the biggest transfer of the day and ended up landing flat smashing his heel. Matty Cranmer went into the finals with the highest scoring run of the day and looked like he would top the podium. In his first run he was boosting massive transfer lines, and pulling ahead of the field until he came up short on a seven ending his run very abruptly. He was unable to take his second run which opened the door for athletes like Trevor Fitz, Brandon Smeltzer and Nickolas Garee. Fitz just missed the podium, but did the biggest successful gap of the event gaining him much respect. Local shredder Garee took home the second podium position by throwing double 360 whips, 720's, and 360 bar to turndown, and Smeltzer finished third by throwing big frontflips, 360 whip to bar, and much more. It all came down to Newkirk who ultimately won despite the fact that he fell in the finals on his first run trying a 720 bar, which put all the pressure on him for a clean second run. It was nail biting watching his second run as he threw down huge tricks like 360 backflips, backflip barspins, superman transfers and his last trick which was a decade to 360 that he nailed earning him first place and the movie ticket award sending him to the Recon Tour Finals at Mike Spinner's back yard where he will compete once again to become the Recon Tour Champion.

Baby Keith always impresses the hell out of me. He's definitely one of the most underrated park riders in the game. From frontflips over spines to superman seatgrabs where you've never seen them before, this is packed full of bangers. Also, that hideous bike is finally gone!

All of the badassness you'd expect from someone repping The Wolf. Nice balance of mellow, technical street lines and some high speed roof gaps. Crankflips are alive and well!

Daniel Dhers sent this over. Anything with his seal of approval has gotta be good. Andrés is from Colombia and kills it. Hard 180 barspins out of grinds, huge tailwhips, hang five lines, and much more. Very impressive.

I watch a lot of videos. Believe it or not, it’s a pretty big part of my job. I watch so many that at times they blend together. It’s pretty rare that something really stands out, especially from a rider I’ve never heard of. I was shocked last week when I saw a new video from an Australian rider named...more

That is strange. Probably because he didn't ride last year's event, I guess...
