Photo Gallery: Red Bull Dreamline Qualifying

BMX dirt contests just got a new benchmark; check out some photos from Friday's prelim jam sessions.

It was an epic day of riding at Red Bull Dreamline, with some ridiculous tricks thrown against an amazing backdrop. The two-hour jam session for each of the two heats allowed the riders to go at their own pace and throw down whenever it felt right. Finals happen on Sunday; the riders who made the cut are as follows (in no particular order):

Kyle Baldock
Chris Doyle
Ben Wallace
Dennis Enarson
Seth Klinger
TJ Ellis
Mike ‘Hucker’ Clark
Pat Casey
Dawid Godziek
Cam White
Joey Cordova
Ronnie Napolitan

Hucker killed the course throughout his entire two-hour heat, taking more runs and throwing more wild tricks than anyone else.

Dennis Enarson, alley-oop 270 off the shark fin

At Red Bull Dreamline in 2011, Enarson blew everyone away when he did an alley-oop 270 out of the shark fin feature. The 2013 shark fin is way gnarlier, so it was a bit of a surprise to see him go for it again. It took three tries, but he got it done.

Custom treehouse perch for the judges

The riders in the afternoon qualifying heat judged the riders in the morning heat, and vice-versa. To make sure they had perfect sightlines throughout the course, master builder and longtime BMX rider Aaron Bostrom created this awesome custom treehouse.
