Monster Energy congratulates team rider James Foster on a strong bronze medal finish in BMX Big Air at the inaugural X Games Shanghai 2019 today. In a boundary-pushing Big Air session on the giant Mega Ramp that drew massive crowds at the Shanghai International Tourism and Resorts Zone, the 33-year-old from Redlands, California battled the world elite of big ramp BMX freestyle riders to claim his sixth career X Games medal. The first-ever X Games Shanghai 2019 brings the biggest names in BMX, skateboarding and freestyle motocross together for an action-packed weekend. The world’s premier action sports spectacle reaches audiences in China and millions of viewers across the globe via live broadcasts on ESPN and partner networks.
Speaking of spectacle, it hardly gets more spectacular than BMX Big Air. Towering over the X Games event village at a total height of 73 feet, the Big Air ramp proved a crowd magnet on Saturday. Starting from a 59-feet roll-in, BMX riders sent their best aerials over the kicker gap in the structure’s middle – optionally clearing a 50-feet or 63-feet gap – before finishing their runs with massive aerials on the 27-feet quarterpipe. Each rider received four runs to post a high score – composed of the gap and quarterpipe aerials – in a final session featuring ten athletes from three countries, including six American riders, three Australians and one Brazilian.
Monster Energy’s Foster came into the event as a podium threat after winning back-to-back gold at X Games Minneapolis 2017 and 2018, plus silver at X Games Sydney 2018. But past achievements held no
