Highlights of Red Bull Roast It


SPONSORS Red Bull have released a highlights video of the Gorge Road Jump Park Jam.

Last month’s event saw some of the best BMX riders in the world defy gravity in Queenstown.

Pro riders from the US, UK, Australia and New Zealand entertained a crowd of about 1000 at Gorge Road Jump Park with an endless variety of tricks.

The annual jam received backing from sports sponsorship giants Red Bull this year and became the Red Bull Roast It.

Kiwi Paul Langlands won best rider and the $3000 top prize for his tireless performance in the 16-rider one-hour super final, throwing down scores of technical tricks in run after run.

Auckland rider George Bolter and tattooed US pro Brandon Docsh shared best line of the day.

Best trick went to an elated Jed Mildon for his double backflip. The Kiwi landed the sport’s first triple back flip last April.
