A special BMX broadcast from X Games California 2023! UNLEASHED goes backstage in Ventura with 32-year-old Jaie Toohey and 27-year-old Boyd Hilder from Australia. In a candid interview with The Dingo, Danny, and Brittney, the two BMX innovators share their approach to bringing the heat to X Games California and claiming medals this weekend.
In the world of freestyle BMX, Australia’s Jaie Toohey is known as a boundary-pushing trick innovator. Milestones include the world’s first backflip triple tail whip for the rider who was a later bloomer in contest performances. Toohey only made his X Games premiere at age 27 and took until age 30 to score his first medal. But since then, he’s been on a roll and now owns four medals from X Games. Fellow Australian Boyd Hilder barged onto the scene at X Games Chiba 2023 by claiming a surprise gold in BMX Street and also owns first-place trophies from contests such as Simple Session in Estonia.
