Monster Energy congratulates BMX athletes Colton Walker and Kyle Baldock on their respective gold-medal victories in BMX Dirt and BMX Best Trick on the final day of X Games Minneapolis 2017. Walker took gold in the BMX Dirt competition, and Baldock won bronze. Just an hour later Baldock also won gold in the Dave Mirra’s BMX Best Trick final — his second. Wrapping up competitions at the inaugural X Games Minneapolis fans were treated to a spectacle as Monster Energy athletes dominated the day on their bikes. First up was the BMX Dirt Finals in which riders link up three consecutive jumps ranging in size from 17 to 25 feet before hitting a new addition to this year’s contest, a 10-foot quarterpipe at the end of the course.
The final round of the 2017 Toyota Triples just finished in Atlanta. The good thing about these events is that they're held at the AMA MX Supercross series so the riders get to see the motocross after the event as well. Well, that's not really the best thing, the riding itself has gone insane and the riders present are taking BMX to a different level. The final round had an Australian podium with Brandon Loupos in third, Kyle Baldock in second and a first for Logan Martin. American Jake Leiva received a $3000 USD check for his Best trick and Baldock scored the 2017 Toyota Triples overall title. Hopefully back for next season as it also shows the sport to many MX fans at each stop.
