There’s no BMX event quite like Texas Toast. What it lacks in mega sponsors and guilded venues, it more than makes up for in energy and excitement and spontaneity. Time limits are relative, boundaries don’t really exist; the crowd calls the end of a run, the riders dictate when and how they ride and no one is any less stoked on what goes down, from the organizers to the fans to the sponsors. It’s a BMX event exactly as the BMX community likes it.
There’s nowhere quite like Los Angeles. It doesn’t have Aspen’s trees or Brazil’s jungles or Barcelona’s architecture or Munich’s floating MegaRamp, but none of those places have a “scene” quite like LA. It’s a place where – at least for four days – the sun was always out, the stars were always in attendance, the streets were always packed, and the parties always went late. And fortunately for the X Games crowds, in the homeland of Hollywood, the drama was ever-present.
Dennis Enarson had big plans coming into the summer of 2013. Photo trips, training and contests, contests, contests. He was doing some of the best riding of his career when a momentary lapse of concentration flung him head-first toward the deep end of the X Games Park course in Foz do Iguacu, Brazil. He escaped with only a broken wrist and a scrape on his chin (and the Bronze Medal), but his next two months were mostly sunk. He sat out the Barcelona and Munich legs of X Games, but he’s feeling healthy and motivated for the last X Games of the year and the last-ever X Games event in Los Angeles. We caught up with the 22-year-old San Diegan to see how things were going.
