New Zealand housed the Red Bull Roast It competition last weekend in Gorge Road Queenstown which was the biggest dirt comps these Kiwi’s have even seen go down, and not just only in New
Zealand… but as world standards go! Crowds crammed into Gorge Road Jump Park ready to watch the 16 rider lineup, waiting to see who will emerge to the top of the podium and claim the 2012 Red Bull Roast It Best Rider title! Brandon Dosch and New Zealand local talent, Paul Langlands represented the Metal Mulisha laying out their lineup of tricks gaining huge crowd support on every run.
Dosch stomped an almost unbelievable double whip across a transfer line that nobody else even considered attempting and tied up his results with Jed Mildon for the Red Bull Roast It, Best Line. At the end of day it was Langlands who charged the course relentlessly all day with a huge bag of tricks earning the Best Rider title. Langlands took home a well deserved victory with a fra gold BMXme trophy, and a nice check for $3000!
“It’s such a good event, it’s a casual jam setup so you’re riding with your mates and at the same time, having fun, but you’re all pushing it too. I have never ridden in any event like this before; I really didn’t expect the win. There are some huge names here so when people started telling me they voted for me, I was so surprised. I’m really stoked I won the first Roast It.” Paul Langlands
Congrats to Langlands and Dosch for taking on the Red Bull Roast It, and for putting Metal Mulisha up on the podium!
