Hot on his heels was fellow Monster Energy athlete, Colton Walker who snapped up the bronze medal with his second run. Walker’s run consisted of a flip bar whip on the first hit, a 360 on the second jump, and ended with a triple whip on the last jump. Judges scored him an 83.00 for his efforts.
“We were all just happy to put a run down at all,” said Walker following the event. “I think it was really good show and everyone killed it. Shout out to the crew and everyone here at X Games and here in Australia. Throughout all the weather and adversity that they had to deal with for us to make it through is insane,” he continued.
