BMX Park at X Games Austin 2014 Won by Hometown Hero [GALLERY]
Twelve riders took to the swoops and slopes of the all-concrete Skateboard Park course on Sunday in a best-run-takes-all battle. In BMX Park, riders are judged on the aggressive execution of maneuvers, difficulty, variety, continuity, originality, style, and amplitude (height of airs), and no one disappointed.
After a tightly contested match, with first and last place separated by less than 5 points, Austin’s own Chase Hawk beat out stiff competition from veteran BMX riders—including Daniel Dhers, the defending Gold medalist—impressing the judges by using every line of the course (a feat few attempt) to take home his first X Games Gold.
