At just nineteen years young, Australian FMX sensation Jarryd McNeil showed the American crowd on Saturday that riders from down under know how to turn it down.
In front of a packed crowd A-list riders like Jeremy ‘Twitch’ Stenberg, Ronnie Faisst, Myles Richmond, Destin Cantrell, Lance Coury and McNeil showed the judges what they had in the bag. Along with them, Carey Hart graced the stage again aboard his bike to show off his bivy of remaining FMX tricks before gearing down to head to the judges tower.
Every rider gave their all of the metal ramp, throwing their most stylish and creative angles on one motocrosses oldest tricks. It was McNeils variation that stole the show, though; One hand off the bars, bike near parallel with the floor before takeoff and nearing a 180 degree rotation the young gun showed the crowd that while the whip itself may be older than him, he knows the trick well.
McNeil is most certainly stuck somewhere in the Vegas airport right now trying to figure out how to fold up that huge $7,000 check into his luggage.
Stay tuned for more from the Dew Tour as the events unfold.
