BMX Worlds Dirt contest in Cologne

Relive the Dirt competition at the BMX Worlds with these images from the event

The BMX Worlds came to Cologne, Germany on July 13-15, and so did the rain… but that wasn't enough to deny the Dirt riders who took part in the contest safely beneath a bridge, with Kyle Baldock the victor. Enjoy these awesome photos from our man on the spot, George Marshall.
