Monday, August 5th, 2013

bmxIn a hell of a contest, Chad Kerley finally grabbed his first gold medal at Summer X Games, dethroning the seven time reigning champ (and arguably the best street BMX athlete alive) Garrett Reynolds. Going into the final though, it was Jeremiah Smith who held the top slot. In the end it was a consistent flow of an insane amount of technical tricks that landed Kerley the win. Jeremiah grabbed a bronze and the respect of many showing what an amazing rider he really is.
