Dirt Elimination went down today at X Games. The event wasn’t open to the public, but basically 20 of the best riders in the world had two runs to get one of the five spots the finals on Saturday with Logan Martin, Brandon Loupos, and Brian Fox (top three from Minneapolis 2018). Definitely a hard one to judge…your thoughts on the results?

  1. I watched the whole contest. To be quite honest, judging was all over the place. I think its about time BMX judging or, at the very least, X-Games judging gets codified in some way. There needs to be more consistency. Riders spend the entire year practicing for this event only to have inconsistent judging. Its just not fair. I’ll give 2 examples from yesterday’s qualifier. Ben Wallace and Kevin Peraza had virtually the same run and Ben got 3rd and Kevin got 10th. Kevin even threw in a 270 whip off the shark fin! Did the judges miss this or something? Mike Varga and Pat Casey also had similar runs in terms of quality and Mike gets 5th and Pat gets 7th. Quite frankly, I’m a bit confused about what goes on in the judging booth for X-Games contests. This is nothing new. Its been like this for years. Also, can we talk about how dumb it is to have pre-qualified riders from the previous year? When did this become a thing for X-Games?
