NEWBURY PARK, Calif. -- Setting a new level of dirt jumping domination, Giant BMX Team rider, Corey Bohan, won his third consecutive gold medal in BMX freestyle dirt competition at X Games 12 on Thursday.

Bohan’s win will inspire riders of all levels and is a direct result of Giant’s involvement with the sport. “Giant is proud to congratulate Corey on yet another gold at X Games, said Skip Hess, president of Giant Bicycle, Inc. “BMX has been a culture-defining category in the bike business for decades and we’re dedicated to that segment.
