Sheckler won the Skateboard Park event, distancing himself from the rest of the field with an average score of 94.00. Rodolfo Ramos was second at 87.92, followed by Carlos De Andrade at 86.17. After two events, Sheckler leads the overall standings with 200 points, followed by Ramos at 130 and De Andrade in third at 126.
"It feels great to have won two in a row," Sheckler said. "I'm trying to win every event this season, I keep telling people that."
Nyquist completed a flawless final run to overtake Corey Bohan and Luke Parslow of Australia to capture the BMX Dirt competition title. Nyquist finished with a final score of 91.08, followed by Bohan at 90.42 and Parslow at 89.67. After two events, Nyquist leads the overall standings with 200 points, followed by Cameron White at 130 and Bohan in third at 124.
"I'm definitely off to a great start," Nyquist said. "I'm definitely happy. I had kind of a scare in the second run and knew the 720 was a risky move, but I'm glad I was able to pull it off. It was a great competition and we've had some amazing runs this season."
