Deegs clearing 28'
Deegan was invited to both Step Up and Big Air at X Games, but elected to sit out of Big Air due to his recent injuries. Brian did ride Step Up, and he put in a strong ride despite his bike setup problems that arose during practice only minutes before the event. Deegan’s mechanic made several trips back to the pits to change both the front and rear sprockets, but it still wasn’t right.
The etnies cloud art specialists took to the skys to support Deegan at Step Up.
Deegan decided to use his practice bike instead of the West Coast Choppers bike, which was setup a little different. Deegs cleared the first round height, but was eliminated along with Ronnie Renner in round two at 31’. Brian was over it, "I'm coming off a pretty gnarly injury, F#$% IT, I'm stoked to be back on a dirt bike."
