SHERWOOD SHINES AT X GAMES

Dirt Rider - - Tear Offs -

New Zealan­der Levi Sherwood flipped his way to two gold medals—the only rider to win mul­ti­ple golds—at this year’s X Games at US Bank Sta­dium in Min­neapo­lis, Min­nesota, bring­ing home top hon­ors in the Paci­fico Moto X Freestyle Fi­nal and in the Monster En­ergy Moto X Best Trick com­pe­ti­tion.

Sherwood used mul­ti­ple dou­ble back­flip vari­a­tions—in­clud­ing no hands and no feet—to win the Paci­fico Moto X Freestyle Fi­nal, beat­ing out Aus­tralians Josh Shee­han and Clin­ton Moore for the top spot. In the Monster En­ergy Moto X Best Trick com­pe­ti­tion, Sherwood nailed two ver­sions of his dou­ble back­flip vari­a­tions to get the win. Jack­son Strong and Clin­ton Moore were sec­ond and third.

Jar­ryd Mc­neil jumped 44 feet to win the Life­proof Moto X Step Up com­pe­ti­tion, while Destin Cantrell took home gold in the Moto X Best Whip and Colby Raha won the new X Games Real Cost Quar­ter­pipe High Air event.
