Red Bull Dreamline BMX dirt comp
Welcome to Red Bull Dreamline
For the second year in a row, Red Bull teamed up with team rider Anthony Napolitan to create Dreamline, a BMX Dirt competition brought to the next level, featuring a massive course that spanned nearly half a mile, descending from a 9,700-foot elevation start in Angel Fire, N.M. Here, T.J. Ellis throws a backflip tailwhip during prelims on Friday.
Dennis Enarson, Cannonball
Back from a wrist injury suffered at X Games Foz in Brazil, Dennis Enarson traveled to Angel Fire and qualified into the Dreamline finals with ease. Enarson placed 12th in the finals.
Anthony Napolitan, the event creator, was blown away by the level of riding, saying the competition was "definitely a progression on every level." "We probably saw two or three new tricks that have never been done before," Napolitan said. "The goal has been accomplished. There were at least three times where I got the chills."
Chris Doyle, No-footed cancan 360
No stranger to huge dirt sets, Pittsburgh, Pa., local Chris Doyle made it through qualifying to take sixth place in the Dreamline finals. Doyle's classic dirt moves coupled with extra height on the Dreamline course allowed for maximum extension.

Pat Casey, No-handed 360
Pat Casey was selected as an alternate to ride Dreamline, but managed to make it through qualifying and land in first place after the finals were done. "I came here as an alternate, to win Dreamline is just awesome. I love this. These are the best dirt jumps I've ridden and it blows my mind," Casey said.
Joey Cordova, No-handed backflip
Because of the massive size of the jumps, classic moves such as the no-handed backflip took on new meaning. Here, Joey Cordova tricks his way into 10th place.
Chris Doyle, Superman
Some things never get old, such as the classic superman over a huge dirt set. Here's the Chris Doyle version.

There was stuff I saw today, I dont know if it's ever been done. It's eye opening. These are the biggest jumps I've ever seen in my life, and I've been around a little bit.
