re-sized king of dirt

King of Dirt competitions – whose the King? Ricardo Laguna that’s who

In difficult conditions, 25mph wind, Ricardo Laguna, a Mexican-American from Las Vegas, was crowned Latin American King of Dirt at the Costa Rica BMX KOD competition in February. This is a lad who has taken his love of BMX riding and successfully turned it into an international career. He built a full BMX course in his backyard in Nevada, which was only the second pro jump track built in the state! So successful has he been in his chosen career that he was named one of Las Vegas’ Hottest Bachelors in 2009!

The next King of Dirt event will be held in Queensland, Australia this weekend, Sunday 22nd May from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Check out last year’s contest to give you an idea of the quality of riding you can expect to see there:

The King of Dirt is Australia’s largest BMX Dirt Jumping competition and attracts the best BMX riders from all around Australia competing for thousands of dollars worth of cash and prizes. This year organisers are expecting a Pro class featuring more than 20 of the best riders from around the country and some from overseas. The Pro Class event will follow the Junior and Amateur classes earlier in the day.

So, whose going to be crowned the King of Dirt in Australia?

The event will be held at Pine Rivers Park, Gympie Rd, Strathpine – a northern suburb of Brisbane. The Strathpine train station is only a 5 minute walk away.

This is a day not to be missed by fans of BMX. Not only is it free entry for spectators, but the King of Dirt competition will thrill extreme sports lovers and families alike with the amazing skills of the professional BMX riders on some of the biggest jumps in the country.
