Chad Kagy Wins Teva Mountain Bike Games

Chad Kagy, an extremely talented BMX park rider, won Best Bike Trick at his first outing at a mountain bike competition during the Winter Teva Mountain Games. The 13 time x-games medalist earned the top spot on the podium, and pocket $5,000, after landing a back flip tail whip in the snow off a 70 foot jump. Prior to the competition he had ridden a mountain bike less than a dozen times. Cam McCaul, a famous freerider in his own right, lured Kagy into the competition by offering him a mountain bike if he participated in the contest.

If the BMXers start showing at MTB events the podiums will start to look a lot different.

Remember when Darren Berrecloth was a nobody BMX semi-pro, and then he jumped on a MTB and was instantly huge?

garret reynolds or an xgames era mirra would be pretty cool @ today’s crankworxs

Goes to show how much of a beast Kagy really is. Broken neck some years ago, one of the last Vert riders left still going huge, and can hop on anything and clean up house!

YEA KAGY!! Kill it buddy! I think the slope style mtb should be introduced to the x-games…
