Monster Energy congratulates the unstoppable James Foster who took gold in BMX Big Air at X Games Minneapolis 2018. In a heated contest that saw eight riders give it their all, it was Foster who reigned king on the biggest jump at X Games with a progressive run that will change the future of the sport. Alex Nikulin, meanwhile, became the first Russian athlete to place top three at X Games in over fifteen years.

There was just one problem however.“I came out here not even knowing if I could ride,” he explained after the event. “I got hit by a car last week on my motorcycle!”
