The Vital MTB audience continues to grow like crazy, with more than 291,000 unique visitors coming to the site in September. This represents 24% growth in traffic since the beginning of the 2011 season in March, and 102% growth from September of last year. Thanks to our advertisers, fans, and users around the world for the continued support!
The second-annual Vital BMX Game of BIKE went down last Saturday at the Vans Skatepark in Orange, CA. To say the riding was incredible would be an understatement (watch the videos and see for yourself). Seeing heavyweight pros like Dave Dilleward, Dennis Enarson, and Ryan Guettler going head-to-head against up-and-comers like Stevie Churchill, Kyle Baldock, Devon Smillie, and Chad Kerley was awesome.
Our goals from day-one for Game of BIKE have been to put on a fun and different type of event for the riders, and raise money and awareness for the Athlete Recovery Fund. Both were definitely accomplished.
- 28 top pros competed
- 17,000 people watched the two-hour live webcast of the final rounds
- $8,300 was raised for ARF (including $500 Chad Kerley donated from his prize money)
- $9,800 was paid to riders
- 4,201 user comments submitted during the webcast (1,325 of which were blocked)
- 1,024 Game of BIKE related Tweets were made during the event
Vans was the presenting sponsor, along with Haro, Dan’s Comp, Go Pro, MovieTickets.com, and Pro Tec. Without their support, the event would not have happened. We also had many volunteers who generously donated their time — thanks.
