Bilko Finishes Second, but Out for Rest of Year

Aussie freestyle motocross titan Blake "Bilko" Williams

Aussie freestyle motocross titan Blake "Bilko" Williams has finished second in the opening round of the Dew Action Sports Tour in America, but will take no further part in proceedings because of season-ending injuries.

The Honda-backed rider came to grief on the second of two runs at Baltimore, Maryland, breaking his leg, as well as dislocating his toes and ankle. He also suffered an injured knee.

"The first run went fine but the next time it didn't go to plan. I went for a ruler flip, but as I left the ramp and threw my legs off the bike, I felt really unbalanced," recalled Blake. "This meant I was spinning way too fast and over rotated. I more or less landed on my feet."

However, the points accumulated from his first run allowed Bilko to slip in behind Nate Adams on the podium.

Williams will now miss the rest of the Dew Action Sports Tour, as well as the X Games and Madrid Red Bull X Fighters.
