The X Trials back in the 90’s were the qualifying events to be in the X-games. In 1999, I flew out to the states for two months to compete in the X Trials in Louisville, and Richmond Virginia. I was beyond stoked to make it to the 99 X games on the first attempt in Louisville, Kentucky behind Jason Brown R.I.P. and Trevor Meyer. Great to watch this back today!
