Dillsy sent over some words and pics from China, and I put together this quick little video from the dirt contest at the CX-Games in Beijing. Get into it after the jump.
I just got back monday from a 2 week trip to Beijing China and had a sick time. I went over for the CX-games competition and to check out some sites. The first week I was there was mainly just being a tourist which was awesome. Got to see the forbidden city and some cool stuff.
The contest was on the weekend and had Dirt And park. They invited about 10 international riders and 10 Asian riders for each event so was a decent turn out. It was the first time China had put Action sports on there biggest tv channel CCTV also.. CCTV has about 15 channels and aprox 100 million viewers over china so it was a big deal for sure..
I ended up getting 3rd in both the Park and Dirt competitions and I am real happy about that. Heres a few pics from my travels.
