VIRGINIA BEACH - A 17-year-old remains in critical condition after crashing during the LXVI BMX Invitational in Va. Beach on Thursday.

DK Bicycles pro Brett 'Mad Dog' Banasiewicz crashed on a 720 attempt.

'Brett went down real hard yesterday,' said fellow biker Todd Meyn from Australia. 'He hasn't woken up officially yet, but he's been responding to everyone, so it looks like it's going to be a good outcome at the end of it, so fingers crossed.'

The crash didn't keep participants off the half pipe on Friday, but 'Mad Dog' wasn't far from everyone's thoughts.

The LXVI BMX Invitational presented by Vans runs in conjunction with the Coastal Edge Surfing Championships.
