If David Beckham’s poorly foot can make the front pages of British tabloids, the mangled foot of US BMX star Ryan Nyquist can surely grace the pages of a bike trade website.
Nyquist broke his foot on the day before Christmas Eve and therefore had to pull out of the Haro UK tour.
He’s being replaced by his brother, Shea.
The other riders – apart from Dave Mirra, undoubtedly the star attraction – include Josh Harrington, Stefan Geisler and Anthony Pill.

Bones Park, Stockport. 7pm-9pm
Rhythm Park, Darwen. 1pm-2.30pm
