Let’s hear it for the rookie! Monster Energy congratulates Jose Torres from Argentina on claiming the bronze medal in BMX Park at X Games Minneapolis 2019 on Saturday. In front of an energetic crowd at U.S. Bank Stadium in downtown Minneapolis, the 24-year-old from Cordoba, Argentina, took home his first X Games medal and became the first rider from Argentina to medal in BMX. Saturday’s BMX action kicked off on the full-featured concrete bowl course with Men’s BMX Park.

Last year, Torres was sidelined from competing at X Games Minneapolis by a wrist injury sustained directly after qualifying. But this year, there was no holding back the 24-year-old.
In the intense final session, Torres covered the entire course in trick-heavy runs featuring downside tailwhip, barspin backflip over the spine, barspin wheelie over the box, double tailwhip into the bank, wall bash barspin, flair barspin, as well as high-flying 360 barspin and frontflip over centerpiece box. The judges rewarded his technical moves and consistency with the bronze medal, which Torres accepted
Dirt Finals was a bit of a blood bath. Fortunately no one was seriously hurt (Buckworth got knocked out for a few seconds and hurt his shoulder, but he's good), but it just goes to show how much these dudes have to send it to get on the podium.
