Today's action kicked off with the Fruit of the Loom BMX Vert Finals where Vince Byron (AUS) epeated last year’s gold medal performance to top podium once again. In a run highlighted with flawless execution of tricks including back to back 540 flairs, the Australian was awarded a score of 93.00 to take the victory. With a trick selection, style and amplitude a cut above the rest of the field, the 27-year-old is quickly becoming the new face of BMX vert. Narrowly missing the top spot was 46-year-old Jamie Bestwick (GBR), who proved that age is just a number as he threw a barrage of tricks including the seldom seen front-flip flair into his last run. Bestwick’s 92.66 earned him a third X Games silver of his distinguished career — in addition to 14 gold medals. Chile’s Coco Zurita (Chile) took home Bronze with a score of 88.00.
