On a Thursday afternoon in New York City, Times Square was treated to something altogether different from The Naked Cowboy: the Air In The Square MegaRamp ASA Triples event. Yes, a BMX contest, running North to South along Broadway between 42nd and 43rd Street.
Placing first in the event was Salt Lake City via Idaho dirt, park and MegaRamp rider Colton Satterfield, who rode consistent throughout the day, and took home his first major win as a pro. Placing second behind Satterfield was 16-year-old rookie pro Pat Casey, who impressed the judges throughout the day with nosedive 360’s, 720s and his ability to boost the ASA Triples ramps. In third, closely behind Casey, was DK Bicycles’ Brett Banasiewicz, now a vested pro on the BMX comp circuit.
Additional competitors in the head-to-head format that failed to podium included an international cast of respected BMX pros such as Ryan Nyquist, Daniel Dhers, Rob Darden, Vince Byron, Zack Warden, Steve McCann, Mike Spinner, Austin Coleman and more.
In the skateboarding contest, 14-year-old Mitchie Brusco managed to beat out skateboarding veteran Bob Burnquist for the title. Professional skateboarders who also competed were Andy Macdonald, Lincoln Ueda, Adam Taylor, Jett Eaton, Pierre-Luc Gagnon, Elliot Sloan and Jagger Eaton.
