Eleven Years of Badass Performance
the X games are here, closing with its final event in Los Angeles, which is also the final year it will be hosted in Southern California before setting down on Austin Texas. LA has been the spot where feats are achieved. The elusive 4 who have competed in every X games since 1995. Pastrana being only one of the three athletes to score the trifecta, was the only one to do it in LA and Ryan Scheckler striking his phenomenon as the youngest gold medalist wining at 13 in the skate park event, did it here. The powerhouse talent that comes every year reaches new heights at the LA competition. Breaking barriers and breaking some bones along the way too, a lot of first have been accomplished here. This year Vickie Golden as the first girl ever getting rad on the Moto X Whip with the boys and showing it with awesome style, coming up third with the bronze medal. Elliot Sloan chasing a dream he has finally achieved in LA ,taking his first gold in the Big Air Event, right ahead of Bob Brunquist who with a broken nose was still trying to compete for the number one spot, but had to settle for bronze. The Big Air event is my favorite, seeing the unstoppable determination of these badass athletes who seek out the impossible and then push forward to land it perfectly. To feel like you could tail grab the moon before you descend back down to earth was an inspiration of the Big Air series, the new summer collection at One Tribe 2010. From its original 4 year stint, turned into eleven years of mind blowing performance, creating milestones and heros. Before the weekends over lets give full props for the SoCal area for being the stomping grounds for a showcase of talent on an epic proportion.
