Colton Satterfield Throws Down in BMX Vert Qualifiers

Colton Satterfield took the top qualifying position in BMX vert by landing his first flip tailwhip and a double tailwhip, to earn a score of 90.38. BMX Vert qualifiers had the advantage of a 5:30 p.m. start time and a setting sun, offering some relief from the day’s intense heat.

Satterfield edged out Jan Valenta, who came to Ocean City all the way from the Czech Republic, and dominated the ramp with his confidence and control. He consistently landed huge airs and massive tailwhips throughout the competition.

Colton, Jan and the rest of the qualifiers will compete in the semifinals on Saturday at 1:30 p.m. against the prequalified riders.
