TJ Ellis is another BMX Dirt competitor who has placed well on the international scene for the past several years. Ellis placed fifth in his first X Games BMX Dirt competition, but many in the Twittersphere, including Moto X competitor Ronnie Renner, believed he should have placed higher. Ellis avoided the discussion and instead focused on the competition, saying that he had fun and was pumped to get support from the Brazilian crowd.
