The Skateboard Big Air and Moto X events seemed to be the highlight of day 1 at the X Games. Skateboard Big Air, which was held at the Irwindale Event Center, saw fan-favorite Bob Burnquist take a nasty spill that left him injured, but not enough to stop him from taking home the bronze. 13-year old Tom Schaar blew spectators minds and walked away with the silver, while Elliot Sloan pulled off some HUGE 540’s and 720’s for the gold.
Back at the Staples Center, the Moto X Best Whip event featured the first-ever female competitor, Vicki Golden, who left with a bronze medal in the fan-voted competition. Jeremy “Twitch” Stenberg received 24% – good enough for second place – while Josh Hansen walked away with the gold medal after receiving 42% of the votes.
