Relive all the action from the Red Bull Phenom BMX Street Final as Video On Demand in the above player.

When 15-year-old BMX rider Felix Prangenberg’s friends ask what he did on his summer vacation, he may have the best story of all – earning a trip to X Games Los Angeles, and winning Red Bull Phenom as his heroes watched.

After a global video search for the best and brightest young talent, Prangenberg and five additional riders from around the world competed in front of a team of judges headed up by legendary rider Mike “Rooftop” Escamilla, X Games gold medalist Garrett Reynolds and BMX Plus editor Ben Crockett.

After searching through 105 submitted videos from 24 different countries, the six most talented riders chosen by Escamilla received an all-expenses trip to X Games Los Angeles and a VIP experience that they will not soon forget. The finalists competed on the same course used for the pros and showed they were able to throw down tricks worthy of the big stage. In addition to the trip, the overall winner also gets their video professionally produced by Red Bull.

German prodigy Felix Prangenberg, a first time visitor to the U.S. was all smiles and almost speechless afterwards. “It’s an honour just to be involved and have the possibility, winning the contest was the icing on top.”
