BMX riders from around the world descended upon Barcelona, Spain over the weekend for the Nike 6.0 BCN BMX Pro, and the action did not disappoint. Barcelona is known as a hotbed of shreddable street spots, but Nike opted to bring Nate Wessel in to build a killer park course set-up right on the water that hosted some of the biggest tricks around.
Unfortunately, Sunday’s Finals were cut short due to rain, so it was decided that Saturday’s Prelim results would be used as final standings for the event. Venezuelan Red Bull rider Daniel Dhers kicked off a busy contest season by bringing out a new downside tailwhip flair and a seatgrab no-footed can-can 360, landing in the number two spot behind Dennis Enarson.
Michael Beran, hailing from Czechoslovakia, finished 8th overall in the contest but took top honors in the Best Trick competition with a bikeflip to tailtap to tailwhip in. Nuts! Italian Red Bull rider Alessandro Barbero also made the cut to the finals, finishing 12th overall with a grip of 360 and tailwhip tricks.
Watch for Daniel at the 2010 X Games in Los Angeles from July 30-August 1.
