GT’s Dillewaard Headed to the X Games

Madison, Wis. – July 27, 2006 – GT street and dirt BMX athlete Dave Dillewaard has been invited to compete in the 2006 X Games.

Dave will compete in the street comp and has also been picked for the first alternate position for dirt. The invitation-only contest will take place in Los Angeles at the Staple Center August 3-6.  

“I feel super stoked and privileged to be invited to compete at the X Games,” said Dillewaard, who took first in dirt at the recent CFB comp and fourth in dirt at the Denver Dew Action Sports Tour stop in July. “The riding level at contests these days is so high, to get invited to the X Games is unbelievable.”

This is Dillewaard’s first X Games.

“I’m happy with my riding and am having more fun than ever this year,” said Dillewaard. “My goals this year are to keep it on two wheels and have a good time on my bike.”

Congrats from GT, Dilly. See you at X Games.
