I don't know anything about snow sports, but I'm willing to bet he chose not to compete. In addition to his talent, Shaun White has a lot of star power. X-Games WANTS to put a guy like that on TV. It's good for business.

The votes are valued in descending order. Whoever I put in first is worth astronomically more than whoever I put in tenth. For that reason, I feel the relevance of my picks drops dramatically after the top three. I'm glad you think these are "duh riders," but they're not invited and need to be nominated.

I assumed you were from Poland based on your comment. I was right. Godziek is amazing and I'd love to see him in there, but he didn't make my top 3. Keep in mind that they're going to invite (I believe) 12 riders and a couple of alternates in addition to the three prequalified riders. This piece is simply highlighting my personal top picks.

No. A lot of these guys are incredibly passionate about competing. Also, it's a rare chance for some BMX riders to make a big paycheck. Even if it's not for everyone, X-Games is a very good thing.

Because there wasn't a contest last year, no one is pre-qualified. I don't think Garrett will have any problems making it in, though.

No.... If anything, that would be street. By park they mean box jumps and quarterpipes... Stuff like that.

Not the whole team, but I'm pretty sure Guettler isn't the only victim. More news to come...

C50_127351170_1266213348

It's difficult, but I don't think putting the girls on this type of stage is the answer. This contest / show is out there to expose BMX to the masses. The highest level female athletes in BMX aren't even in the same ballpark as the men. I'd be shocked if they could find ten women in the world who felt comfortable even simply jumping all of the ramps that will be at Nitro World Games. I could see this being counterproductive both for the female riders and for the audience experiencing BMX - possibly for the first time - in the long run. I am, however, a huge supporter of women riding BMX, I just really don't think - for the time being, at least - this is the place for it.

While I can't immediately verify, I'm pretty confident this will not include female competitors. They're packing A LOT into three hours, so I don't think there's room for much more. Also, I think we've gotta base some of our guesses here on the Nitro Circus shows, which only include one or two females (neither of whom are BMX riders).

Interesting thought, Keith - and I absolutely hear where you're coming from. I guess we have to rely in self control (which generally doesn't exist in BMX.... haha) and the qualifying events to sort this out. Hopefully if dudes are getting a bit too loose without the skills to back it up in qualifying, they'll send them on their way. We'll see.

Also, thanks for doing the frontflip flair.

What you (and Taj) said makes perfect sense. Regardless of the strength, I know many of the best riders in the world who couldn't perform near their highest ability on such a light bike. It's obviously working for Ricky and it's awesome he went so far out of his way to create what's best for him, rather than settling for something else that's already out there.

I'm pretty sure you could get something custom for around the same price or less (based on what I've heard from some people who know more about this than I do - none of which is 100% confirmed).

It's totally custom. My guess is a similar custom titanium frame would run you $1,500 - $2,000.
