Kerley Wins Gold at X Games MN

Monday, July 23rd, 2018

xgamesepsChad Kerley has done it again. This past weekend Chad had two flawless runs in the X Games Street BMX contest to take the top spot. Down to the wire, Chad’s last run one upped his previous tech mastery and it came down to the only man who was capable of removing Chad from the top spot – Garrett Reynolds (9 time Gold medal winner). Garrett had an amazing run but a late bauble led to his falling on the next trick giving CK the guaranteed win. In a complete display of sportsmanship, Chad immediately went to hug his idol and Garrett returned in helping Chad celebrate his second gold.

So hyped for you CK! Congrats to you and Garrett and to our friend Devon Smilie for their silver and bronze medals. All the riders were amazing to watch.

In skateboard park, Keegan Palmer made a go at his first pro X Games and wowed the crowd with his bag of tricks. Unfortunately he didn’t make a complete run but he definitely won the fans over with the maturity of his skill level given he was the youngest competitor in the field. Great job KP!!!
