Colton Walker, an X Games rookie who grew up just outside of Minneapolis took the win in the Fruit of the Loom BMX Dirt Finals. In a run highlighted by a 360 double downside whip-to-late bar spin and a flair whip-to-bar spin on the quarter pipe, the 20-year-old scored a 93.00 to snag his first ever gold medal.
The Toyota Men’s Skateboard Park final saw Alex Sorgente roll away with gold, his first in the event after four previous invites.
Having already won a bronze just a couple hours before, BMX superstar Kyle Baldock defended his gold from last year at the Dave Mirra’s BMX Park Best Trick final. Doing a trick that no one else is attempting at the moment, the Australian broke out the same move that won it last year, a 720 double tail whip for the win.
In the final event of the weekend, The Real Cost QuartPipe Big Air, it was another X Games rookie, Colby Raha, who took home the gold medal.
In total, 110,000 fans attended the inaugural X Games Minneapolis. Fans won't have to wait long to see the best action athletes in the world again. Minneapolis is home to the X Games again in July, 2018.
