Over The Falls
Tune in Saturday at 11 a.m. EST to watch Bucky Lasek, Pierre-Luc Gagnon, Bob Burnquist and the best halfpipe riders in the world compete for Vert gold under the mist and mystique of Iguau Falls, Brazil.
As Bob Burnquist goes for double gold at X Games Foz, PLG and Lasek will try to stop the tide with dreams of gold themselves.
With Shaun White out of the picture, Pierre-Luc Gagnon feels this is his time -- right here, right now -- under the mist of Iguau Falls to take home another X Games Vert gold medal.
As the hype and spotlight point toward PLG and Burnquist, Bucky Lasek waits in the shadows to remind everyone that he might be the greatest vert skater on the planet.
Young gun Mitchie Brusco isn't being handed the torch from the elder pros, he's coming to take it and prove that this 16 year old is the real deal.
Sandro Dias is Brazilian and he's here to blast. No one goes high, faster and farther than Dias.
Andy & Cab
Andy Macdonald lock-knee frontside airs over Steve "The Colonel of Cool" Caballero in a display of vertical solidarity.
The Golden Hawk, The Bird Man, The Fhrer of Flight -- whatever moniker Tony Hawk goes by he is the definition of vert skateboarding.
Steve Caballero is in Foz to judge Big Air, Park and Vert, but still has time to get his licks in on the vert.
Bob's Switch Flip
Right when you thought Bob Burnquist couldm't get any gnarlier he switch flips to fakie 5-feet out of the vert ramp -- and look at that background!
