I miss this era of BMX Dirt competition. Everyone had their own unique style; not like today where it's all tailwhips, barspins, and flips. Back then you could get guys like Brian Foster and Allan Cooke competing together. Now, you can't do that. Imagine Logan Martin and Kris Fox in the same dirt comp.

At first I thought it look like he did a 360 backflip to 360 backflip tailwhip.

360 backflip to backflip tailwhip. So, just one whip but two flips and a rotation.

These guys are definitely way too good. This said, to me it looks like the same trick in the video all over. 3 whip to bar.
Gets a little boring tbh

I agree. Not question these guys are talented, but it's not really the style of riding I like to pursue or watch.

Logan Martin didn’t make it! Lot of great riders like Enarson, Casey, Watts, and Peraza being left out to. Personally I absolutely hate the qualifying rules. Who has that much time to get to these C1 events? Certainly not the guys doing video parts.

Added a comment about feature When Judging Goes Wrong: Head Judge Van Homan Discusses X Games 2019 Error 8/9/2019 7:45 AM

As someone who was quick to jump on the judges for this, I appreciate Van Homan and Vital BMX for taking the time to address the situation. Obviously, the judging panel is full of riders I watched and respected growing up, and I do feel that they try to give a fair assessment. In Our BMX's video, Gary Young even admitted to underscoring Kevin Peraza's first run in the elimination. I appreciate the judge's being honest and hope this can resolve some of these issues going forward.

Would it be possible to have discipline-specific crews like a crew of BMX dirt experts just judging dirt? Or is that too much to ask for X-Games?

Definitely an unfortunate event. With so much judging packed into one day, mistakes are inevitable - but it's never a positive.

His run should have placed him in 5th - not 7th. It wouldn't have shaken up the podium, but I'm sure he missed out on some cash and recognition.

For what it's worth, Ben is a...more

Yeah. Keep in mind that park, street, and dirt were basically back-to-back on the same day this year. The same judging crew had to carefully analyze each of the events and do so under the pressure and stress that comes along with live, televised events. It's a lot to ask for of anyone. Should it have...more

Eh. I'm glad it's back for sure. But I much prefer the good old days when trail style counted for something. These days if you can't do quad whips, twisters, or 1080s you don't have a chance. I mean, how many whips and barspins can you watch before it gets boring?

Yeah, I get that judging is probably tough for X-Games. Hell yeah! Wallace rules!

I mean you could list the invited Street, Dirt, Vert, and Big Air riders also. This is an issue that goes beyond disciplines. And as Nina said in the interview, X-Games has been trying to discard BMX events for the last decade or so. They axed Flatland and Dirt (brought it back recently though) and give limited invitation slots to the other BMX events (a far cry from the 30+ rider contests you used to see in X-Games BMX during the 90s and 00s). A lot of riders rely on X-Games for their income (not just the cash prizes but also name recognition and getting sponsorship recognition). A complete boycott of the X-Games by all BMX riders would pretty much end BMX at X-Games. I'm no fan of X-Games. I don't even watch it anymore (I would rather watch the Vans Pro Cup). I'm just simply saying that the industry is a tough go right now and riders have to look out for themselves.
