BMX PIG is a product of RushHDTV, an extreme sports channel for the Voom Network, a satellite-based network that broadcasts only High Definition television shows. This made the whole contest a major TV production, including green screens, fill-lights to illuminate people’s faces, and "Matrix Shots" where each rider had to stand on a designated spot that was pre-measured to be an equal distance between several cameras. Being HDTV, this also made the scene very important to the production crew; a single orange cone or person in the background would ruin a shot and they were very particular about keeping all spectators out of sight (see: the vert ramp, over 100 feet away from the course). BMX PIG will air on RushHD, so you’ll have to subscribe in order to see it. Eventually, I believe, the show will end up on DVD format, as well as on Fuel channel.

DOYLE AND WINKELMANN TAKE SECOND IN FIRST BMX PIG CONTEST


DC's very own Chris Doyle and Colin Winkelmann were among a select list of riders invited to compete in the very first BMX PIG contest. The game of PIG was held at Woodward last weekend. If you’ve ever played HORSE in basketball, you get the idea of what went down.

Chris and Colin took second out of the 12 two-man teams. The contest was also filmed for a new TV network called Rush HD, so be on the lookout for upcoming air times. And the next time you see Chris or Colin, give them a high five and say congrats
