Monster Energy congratulates Dan Lacey on his Best Trick win at the second stop of the Toyota BMX Triple Challenge in Arlington, Texas. Taking place during select Monster Energy Supercross events, the Toyota BMX Triple Challenge has proven to be the premiere event for pushing the level of dirt riding. But new for this year, the Arlington stop switched all that up and took on a whole new street feel with ramps, trailers, jersey barriers, wallrides, and rails. The unique, street-style course was designed by Monster Energy’s Kevin Peraza featuring some of the best street and ramp riders in the world.
The qualifying event on Friday wasn’t open to the public, but 36 riders battled it out for 13 spots in the semi-finals to join up with Garrett Reynolds, Drew Bezanson, and Peraza. Huge drops off of trailers, boosted airs, and a barrage of technical riding in between definitely made the judges’ job hard. In the end, Monster Energy had a stacked field of riders in the semi-finals with Dakota Roche, Lacey, Larry Edgar, Victor Peraza, and winner of the first stop of the 2019 Toyota BMX Triple Challenge in Anaheim, Pat Casey.
