When it came down to the finals, Kris placed 6th and Larry 10th. Check out this rad edit that follows them through practice, to qualifying, and all the way through to the super charged finals. Brace yourself for some wild speed and crazy height!

The “PK Ripper” is iconic and for good reason, you can shred it on anything. In the first photo below, legend BMXer Mat Hoffman takes flight on the vert ramp aboard a “PK Ripper”. Thought a “PK Ripper” was only good for racing? Think again!
In this second photo, another legend is taking his “PK Ripper” to heights unseen! That’s right, that is BMX legend Eddie Fiola BLASTING at the “King of the Skateparks” during the 80′s! BMX history at its finest!
