Luan Oliveira barely missed a gold medal in the street contest during X Games 17. Going into the finals with a first place standing (score 0f 91.0), Luan skated incredibly but in the end lost the gold to Nyjah Huston by only .67 points.
Also congrats to David Gonzalez and Andrew Langi for making finals in skate (DG – Street and Park + AL – Park).
Unfortunately both Kyle Loza and Curren Caples suffered last minute injuries preventing them from competing this year and Chad Kerley was not bumped up to compete BMX street from the alternate spot. Josh Hansen competed in Best Whip as well.
Congrats to all and get better Curren and Kyle!
