Monster Energy congratulates Pat Casey and Leandro Moreira for taking first and second place at FISE in Montpellier, France in BMX Dirt. In its 22nd year, FISE is the longest running action sports event in Europe. Its roots are in Montpellier, where the weekend crowd swells to over 600,000 people, and there are also stops in Hiroshima, Japan, Edmonton, Canada, Budapest, Hungary, and Chengdu, China. The international notoriety of FISE has the draw of the best athletes from around the world.
Pro Dirt qualifying was scheduled for the night before, but with high winds, the decision was made to run the Final the following evening sans the qualifiers. A total of 18 riders got three runs with the best run counting. The course consisted of a massive step-down gap, followed by two straight jumps, a hip, then a roller into the last jump.
