Opening the final day of competition was the Fruit of the Loom BMX Dirt Finals, an event where riders hit three consecutive jumps ranging in size between 17 and 25 feet before finishing their run on a quarterpipe. Today it was Colton Walker, an X Games rookie who grew up just outside of Minneapolis that took the win.
The Toyota Men’s Skateboard Park final saw Alex Sorgente roll away with gold, his first in the event after four previous invites. Coming in with inventive lines and technical lip tricks, the judges saw a diversity in the 19-year-old unique to the rest of the field. With tricks like a lofty kickflip indy grab and an ollie to fakie onto the Viking ship-to-half cab back into the bowl, Sorgente narrowly beat out favorite Tom Schaar. Schaar, meanwhile, impressed the crowd with speed and flow, throwing a clean 540 into his silver medal run. San Diego’s Cory Juneau took bronze.
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.
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, and judging by the remarkable Minnesota hospitality and joyful enthusiasm, the move to the Midwest marks a new era in the storied history of X Games, one that continues next year — July 19-22.
