Well its the week of X Games and Kyle has turned up the intensity, training every day studying film and getting focused. I have never seen him so intense. The word is out on his new trick the Volt named after the Electric icon. You can also view photos and videos of Kyle going into the foam pit with this trick on www.EXPN.com under the Pastrana’s shadow article that profiles upcoming riders. While you are there check out the ESPN the Mag article under the Elements of Style column that profiles Kyle for his look and attitude.
Kyle did an interview for the OC Register this past weekend and the article should come out on Thursday to find it just look on the front page. Monster Energy has put Kyle up in the Standard hotel while at X Games so he can relax and take in the whole week. Kyle is amped to watch the MX races on Sunday as well as the Skate and BMX Mega ramp that will be in Staples center on Aug 2nd. Kyle dropped by the US open of surfing this past weekend to check out the action, while there he got to hang out with his friend and fellow X Games best trick competitor Todd Potter and hook up with Lil D from FMF. Kyle’s teammate and good friend Greg Hartman is flying in on Wendsday to wrench for Kyle at X Games unfortunately he has a broken hand so he will be a one handed mechanic. The attached images of Kyle and The Volt are all foam pit photos. The Volt will make it’s public debut to dirt this Aug 2nd at the Staples center in front of the whole world.
Kyle wants to give a special thanks to:
