Zink and Strait go deep business partners and good friends. Fist bump for good luck but after that the gloves come off.

Kyle Strait and Cam Zink. Best of friends and fierce competitors. After Cam crashed Kyle slowed down to make sure his bro was ok before continuing down the course.

Strait is the complete package fast for sure but not just anyone can pull a quick trick like this on a hit more suited to a tailwhip.

 I was hoping to see Barry Nobles on the podium, guess his trick game isn't up to par with the rest of these guys though. It's just always cool to see top-level BMX race dudes like Barry in mountain bike events.

 Why did the finals (or every heat indeed) had to have two runs? Just one run for every heat would've been easier to follow...
I like the format of this contest tho, hope we'll see something like it more often!

 They had to so they could work out who took 2nd and 3rd place.

 So that each rider had to ride each side of the dual track! It was obvious by the second berm on nearly every run that one side was faster than the other. I liked the format gave the underdog a chance to redeem himself...

 so they both get to ride the same track which makes it fair

 Disregard my other comment, I only watched the last bit and have no idea what I am talking about.
