Ryan Nyquist took advantage of the hometown setting to come out on top at the BMX Dirt Finals. Crowds were held in suspense until Nyquist’s third run put him in the lead. He landed a double barspin flip, 450 barspin, and a 720 barspin to beat out second place finisher TJ Ellis and third place finisher Colton Satterfield.
“I knew I needed to step it up completely and that’s what I did,” said Nyquist. “It feels really good to win - amazing is more like it. It’s so good to be in northern California with so many friends and family around. It’s just awesome.”
