The BMX events from Friday were won by James Foster and Garrett Reynolds.
BMX Big Air
The Big Air final had a lot of dramatic plot twists. After the first two runs, Vince Byron was leading the pack, but, after the third run, James Foster reclaimed the first place.
In the end, Foster won another gold in the Big Air. In the last run, he amazed everyone with a triple backflip with tailwhip. His score was 94.33, with exactly two points more than Vince Byron, who won the gold medal in the BMX Vert.
Foster won the gold. Vince Byron had to settle for the second place and the silver medal. The bronze medal was won by Kurtis Downs.
The BMX Street was a one man show. Garrett Reynolds dominated the competition and managed to score the highest score in both of the runs. As the rules say, only the best score stays. Reynolds scored a higher score in the first run, 89.33, and he took the gold medal.
Devon Smillie was the only finalist who managed to stay near the score Reynolds obtained but he only did enough to finish second with 87.00. The bronze medal was taken by Simone Barraco, who did an 85.66.
The X Games will continue today with several finals from Moto X, skateboard and BMX.
